PORT ANGELES — Veteran Master Gardeners Marilynn Elliott and Tanya Unruh will share ideas for holiday décor and gifts for the home garden at noon Thursday.
Their presentation, “Holiday Décor and Gifts from the Garden,” is the next installment of Washington State University Clallam County Extension’s Green Thumb Garden Tips series. It will be in the county commissioners’ meeting room (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.
Elliott will demonstrate how to transform ordinary gardening items into gifts — not all necessarily holiday-themed — for year-round use.
She also will show how ordinary stones, flower pots and shovels can be repurposed as attractive yard art.
Unruh will illustrate how to use materials from the garden for holiday decorating and for gardening gifts for both the holiday season and year-round.
Specifically, she will share ideas for gifting seeds, seedlings, bulbs, pressed or dried flowers, and garden tools and supplies.
Unruh, a Master Gardener volunteer since 2013, has designed unique artistic, thematic settings for her home garden which was featured during the 2015 Petals & Pathways Home Garden Tour.
A Master Gardener since 2003, Elliott has spearheaded several Petals and Pathways Home Garden Tours and her garden was featured on the 2013 garden tour.
She is a recipient of the Master Gardener of the Year and Golden Trowel Lifetime Achievement awards.
