Have you ever wondered how to divide water plants? How to plant them? What to plant them in (i.e., soil and containers)? What to do with them during the winter? Other questions about water gardening in general?

If you have asked yourself any of the questions above, this Seminar is for you. We will be holding a free (to CWGS Members) Seminar at Hudson Gardens on Saturday, March 26th from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm to answer any questions you may have about dividing, planting, and care of your various water plants. Hudson Gardens is located at 6115 S. Sante Fe Drive, Littleton, CO 80120.

Colorado Water Garden Society members and Hudson Gardens’ volunteers will be available to demonstrate dividing and planting techniques.

*Meet us at the greenhouse beginning at 9:00 am. The greenhouse is located just west of Monet’s Place on the southwest portion of Hudson Gardens. A map of Hudson Gardens is posted directly behind the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center opens at 9:00 am. If you arrive before 9:00 am or after 9:15 am, please enter Hudson Gardens through the gate located just to the left (south) of the Visitor Center.
