Friends of Manito to present lecture on how to divide perennials

UPDATED: Mon., Aug. 6, 2018, 3:45 p.m.

Do you have crowded perennials in your yard or garden and need a little help learning how to divide them? The Friends of Manito will host a lecture on how to divide perennials at 10 a.m. Aug. 18 at the Manito meeting room, 2020 S. Tekoa St.

Plants that are crowded can become stressed, drain the soil of nutrients or attract unwanted pests. Washington State University Master Gardener Steven Nokes will speak about why crowded plants should be separated and how to care for them afterward.

The class is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so making reservations by emailing tfm@thefriendsofmanito.org is recommended.
