The Edmonds Floretum Garden Club invites the public to its monthly meeting on Monday, December 19th. The speaker will be WSU Master Gardener Bruce Bennett, who will share a talk titled “Herbs of the Northwest.”
“Herbs are wonderful,” said Bennett. “They range from 25-foot tall trees to shrubs, vines, groundcovers, perennials and annuals. Focus on culinary herbs that can be easily grown in containers.
“Our USDA Zone 8 provides the perfect climate to grow a wide variety of herbs,” he continued. “We will also look at dishes that are particularly well suited to his three main cuisines in our region: Asian, Mediterranean and Mexican.”
Bennett is an award-winning Seattle-based garden designer, consultant, and instructor who has honed his craft in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 30 years. He trained as a WSU Master Gardener and Rain Garden Educator, a Washington State Certified Professional Gardener, and a University of Georgia Certified Nursery Consultant. After retiring as Director of the Social Sciences Education Program at the University of Washington, Master of King County served as Director of Education for several years as Director of Education for his Gardener His Program Foundation and as his partner managing his own landscape design firm. I’m here.
Bennett’s talk is part of Washington State University’s Growing Foods Program.
