We are right at the very end of the planting season and City Blossoms wants to squeeze in one more celebration of our communities and gardens with another Bulb Bash! Come on out to Marion Street Intergenerational Garden at 1519 Marion St NW on Saturday, November 20th from 12-3. There will be a massive bulb planting, tasty potluck, warm drinks to sip, recipe demos, games and face painting for all ages. Our last Bulb Bash was a real hit so don't miss this one!

Holiday Fun to get you glowing

I didn't really realize how CLOSE the holidays are until I walked into one of my favorite hardware stores yesterday and saw that most of the gardening section had been replaced with holiday decorations.

If you are looking for some great events and activities to take up some of the time that you were spending in the garden, here are a few great lists I found:

Eileen Weklar, the DC Feng Shui Home & Garden Examiner, lists some great upcoming activities for gardeners presented by Merrifield Garden Centers.

A Holiday Ladies Night, Christmas Floral Design workshop, and How to Create a Festive Container Garden are all on the agenda at various Merrifield Garden Center locations.

For more details, hop on over to Eileen's Examiner article about Holiday Seminars.

Over on her Diggin' In blog, Kathy Van Mullekomlists upcoming holiday events as well as nature programs, garden tours, etc. Activities include the Million Bulb Walk, a Camellia show & sale, and a Snow Garden show. You can get more information on these events by visiting her blog.
