Jim Brockmeyer of Bluestem Nursery will present a slide presentation and talk on ‘New Ways with Ornamental Grasses and Willows’ on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Castlegar Community Complex, Purcell Room.

The Castlegar Garden Club is happy to share their February meeting with the public.

Jim Brockmeyer is our local expert on ornamental grasses and willows. Jim’s knowledge is prodigious and his enthusiasm contagious.

Jim’s long established Bluestem Nursery and mail order business in Christina Lake offers 120 ornamental grasses and 47 varieties of willows in 2011.

Ornamental grasses and willows are low maintenance plants, perfect for your gardening projects.

Many grasses are drought tolerant and offer an entree into water conservation and xeriscaping.

Jim says: “There will be plenty of time for your questions.”

Admission by donation or bring something for the food bank.
