Mission Oaks Gardens and the Muskingum Valley Master Gardeners invite the public to come this Saturday March 28th to listen to horticulturalist and hosta grower and hybridizer Doug Beilstein from 2:00-3:00 at the Park District Volunteer Building in Zanesville on the corner of McConnell and Euclid. Doug and his wife Mardy own and operate their greenhouse business, Hostaworks, in Mansfield Ohio where they currently grow 6-7,000 seedlings. He has been a hosta hybridizer for over twenty years and was recently president of the American Hosta Society. He has spoken at many local, regional, and national conventions on hybridizing. He loves to share his knowledge about this beautiful shade addition to the garden. Doug is familiar with this part of Ohio as he attended Muskingum College.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn about what to look for in selection, and on displaying and caring for this beautiful shade plant. He will also offer suggestions on the use of other companion plants for your garden beds.
Seating for this Garden Speaker Program is limited to 50 people. Please register with Darlene Turner by calling 740 450-8050 ext.0
