Although it seems to be the longest winter ever, it’s finally time for spring, and with spring comes April Seminar Saturdays at Bench’s Greenhouse & Nursery in Elmore.

This series, entitled “Ready? Let’s Grow!” was established in 2002 to educate participants in various aspects of gardening from rose care, to creating containers, or how to attract butterflies to the garden.

The 2014 series schedule includes:

  • April 5 – Small Space Gardening. With over 30 years of garden experience, Mark Sutherin, of Arett Sales, will guide participants through growing in any size space.
  • April 12 – Fairy Garden Frolic. Bring your own container, or purchase one at Bench’s, and leave with your own planted fairy garden to enjoy. Costs vary depending on items purchased. All ages welcome.
  • April 19 – Introducing Hort Couture. Join Jennifer Hatalski from Hort Couture, as she introduces a brand new series of annuals being grown at Bench’s Greenhouse & Nursery.
  • April 26 – It’s All About Color. Take the guesswork out of color combinations with Cheryl Grosjean, interior designer at Genoa Custom Interiors. Explore what’s hot and what’s not for 2014. Learn to coordinate colorful plantings with outdoor living.

All sessions begin at 10 a.m. Reservations are not required. Bench’s Greenhouse & Nursery is located at 18063 SR 105, Elmore. Bench’s opens for the season April 1 with hours Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Visit for more information.
