Under blue skies, Le Tour des Plants kicked off the fall planting season!

By Ann Murphy

Saturday, I headed to the Corvallis area where I learned about rain gardens at Garland Nursery and watched some enthusiastic ladies creating charming willow furniture for their gardens at Shonnard's.

It's not too late to learn the secrets of building garden furniture. Madrona Hills Ace Hardware (Salem) has a willow furniture class on Friday, Sept. 18 from 10am-4pm. Registration is required (call 503.763.6323) and there is a class fee ($125). OAN member, Willow Station creates the basic frames and you put on the finishing touches. Looks like a lot of fun and a great way to decorate the garden with one of your own creations!
