Presenter - Jason Powell
Date - Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Time - 7:00 pm
Title : Using Perennials in the Garden
Jason will offer a lesson about the toughest perennials for the South. He will offer ideas for combining them in a landscape setting as well as a discussion of care and maintenance.
Jason has a Horticulture/Landscape Design degree from Auburn University and an M.S in Horticulture from Texas A&M University.
Jason and his wife Shelley are the owners of, Petals from the Past . They specialize in antique roses, heirloom shrubs, cottage perennials, and herbs. In addition, they produce a handful of classical varieties of vegetables and fruit trees. The Petals from the Past has display gardens, fruit gardens, growing facilities, and an Educational facility.
One of the primary goals of their nursery is to approach gardening from an educational standpoint. To achieve this goal they have two main objectives. First, they try to integrate everything they grow into a garden setting so customers can see what these plants look like as mature specimens. On the grounds, they have 45 acres to develop, seventeen of which are currently being used. Secondly, they host two to three lectures/workshops monthly with various guest speakers to enlighten our customers as well as their staff. In addition to the workshops, they hold two major events each year. The spring “Antiques in the Garden” show hosts approximately 40 vendors with antiques,
collectibles, and crafts. The “Black and Blue Berry Festival” is held in June during the blackberry and blueberry harvest.
