Beyond Paperwhites



Amazing Winter Blooming Bulbs

for Pots and Greenhouses 


Many gardeners think about bulbs as spring-blooming, such as tulips, crocuses and daffodils. But here in New England winters are long, and although we are familiar with some winter bulbs such as amaryllis and paperwhites, most gardeners are ready for something new and unusual. Winter-blooming bulbs are the answer. Bulbs are designed to be practically foolproof, but where can you find unusual ones, and which ones should you try indoors or in a cool room? Join Matt Mattus as he shares some of his favorite bulbs for culture in pots, under glass and indoors. Matt will introduce you to all types of bulbs, from South African rarities for collectors to easy-to-grow yet hard-to-find gems, many of which you may have never heard of. Participants will take home a pot or two of some of Matt’s favorites.







INCLUDES A BULB FORCING WORKSHOP, BULBS AND POTS INCLUDED

MATT MATTUS | The Wild  Side of Gardening

RE-DISCOVERING SUMMER BULBS


Join horticulturist Matt Mattus as he shares his designs, ideas and inspirations for adding lesser-used summer bulbs to your gardens and container plantings. Learn about creative and unique ways to grow such delights as galtonia and old-fashioned tuberoses, as well as how to grow and display the sort of conservatory collections once seen only on private estates, with pots of seasonal bulbs like tuberous begonias and unusual Japanese bulbous orchids. Matt’s presentations are always entertaining and beautiful with his stylish photos and lists of sources so you can re-create these looks at your own home.

Matt Mattus is editor and publisher of Plant Society Magazine and the popular rare plant blog Growing With Plants. He is a member of numerous plant societies and is a wizard with all things horticultural.
