Featuring unusual lily bulbs at affordable prices just in time for spring planting
The Wisconsin-Illinois Lily Society presents a lecture, "Put Glam in Your Garden with Lilies," on Sunday, March 14, at 2 p.m. Winnetka resident Woodruff Imberman, president of the Wisconsin Illinois Lily Society, will teach simple propagation techniques for growing lilies, and describe the wide variety of lilies that flourish in the Chicago area. Attendees will learn how to design a garden with lilies so that some are in bloom all summer long. Mr. Imberman is the author of numerous articles in regional and national horticultural magazines on lilies, is an amateur lily hybridizer, and has won many awards for his lilies.
I dont know what varieties they are offering (IÂm just a member, and a new one at that, not an organizer). My garden is so stuffed that I like being able to buy one, rather than 3, of something as the online vendors always seem to sell them.
For those who arenÂt Botanic Garden members, the Garden does charge for parking (thought I should give a heads-up, just in case!).
Here is the Garden website in case you want to see what else is going on that day to help justify the trip. ThereÂs a gesneriad show and sale too. (African Violets, etc.)
