Morning Glory Series: ‘Fall Gardening – A Great Season to Plant’


From Special Reports

Ever wonder why gardeners say Fall is the best time for planting? Well, wonder no more. Nurseryman Jason Powell will share his insider know-how on fall planting during the Coweta County Master Gardeners’ “Morning Glory” workshop on Oct. 29.

The free workshop will be held from 10-11:45 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the UGA Extension – Coweta County, located at 255 Pine Road in Newnan.

Powell and his wife, Shelley, own and operate Petals from Past, a nursery that specializes in antique roses, heirloom shrubs, cottage perennials, and herbs in Jemison, Ala. Since starting their nursery in 1994, the couple has applied contemporary techniques in growing the finest old-garden plants along with new varieties.

Powell, who holds a master’s degree in horticulture from Texas A&M University, says the couple’s primary goal is approaching gardening from an educational standpoint: The plants they sell are integrated into a garden setting, so customers can see how they will look as mature plants. They also host monthly lectures and workshops for customers and staff.

Admission is free, and you need not register in advance to attend unless you want to be registered for the door prizes, usually plants and other gardening supplies.

The Morning Glory educational programs are sponsored by the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs). Please call the Extension office at 770-254-2620 for reservations and to register for door prizes.
