Wed Jan 09, 2019 12 PM - 1 PM

The Art of Bonsai
The world of Arts takes many forms. One such form is called a "Living Art" because the subject is alive and evolves as it grows. This Living Art is called "Bonsai" and the subjects are trees and shrubs which, while young, mimic old trees, some of which have survived over the years under stressful conditions causing them to take on unusual forms, which can be pleasing to the eyes.

Come learn about this Living Art form with MBG volunteer Fred Nowak. Bring a sack lunch or enjoy a box lunch from Fratelli’s in the Garden.

Free with regular admission. Call 901-636-4100 for more information.

Laagland’s family business began in 1910 in the fields of De Zilk in The Netherlands and is one of the largest flower bulb growers and exporters in the world. Philipp will review annual cycles of production from planting to selling and will discuss ways to use flower bulbs in your landscape designs. After the lecture, please join us in the cutting garden to toast the tulips and enjoy the popular and
colorful blooms that herald spring.
