The Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties Master Gardeners are holding a free plant clinic at Westport on Saturday, June 11, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Certified Master Gardeners will be on hand to assist students in two areas.
First, guests are invited to bring an empty pot to plant. Westport Winery will provide free potting soil with the purchase of plants for the pot, and the Master Gardener volunteers will assist in designing the perfect container arrangement.
Second, guests are invited to bring cuttings from sick plants to have the Master Gardeners assist with identifying the plant problem and prescribing a solution.
A portion of the proceeds from the winery’s popular Little Wild Blackberry Riesling benefits the Master Gardeners. A sculpture of a little bear gorging on berries commemorates this wine in the middle of the Never Enough Thyme Tapestry Garden.
