HPSO After Hours: "Pomarius Nursery"
Hardy Plant Society of Oregon recently debuted a new program, "HPSO After Hours," to bring gardeners together to socialize, learn, shop and explore. Each HPSO After Hours is different and is hosted by some of the locally-owned horticultural and garden businesses that make the Pacific NW a gardening utopia and home to hundreds of horticulture-based enterprises. With over 2,500 members, Hardy Plant Society of Oregon is one of the largest non-profit horticultural groups in the west. HPSO After Hours events are free for HPSO members, with the objective being to explore local businesses and to meet the people behind the businesses. HPSO memberships will be available at the door or can be purchased at http://www.hardyplantsociety.org/join-page. Space is limited, so pre-registration highly recommended.
The next HPSO After Hours will be Thursday, September 15 at Pomarius Nursery, tucked into a corner of Portland’s NW industrial area. The owner’s roots in Belgium and the south of France are reflected in his stock and include witty topiary shrubs, textural plants, NW native plants, succulents, perennials and architectural objects. While Pomarius Nursery appears compact from the street, walking through the entrance reveals a huge selection and large display areas that include secret passageways, water features and surprises. The HPSO After Hours from 6-8pm will include a fun scavenger hunt to encourage people to explore and win prizes or discounts.
