Glenn Walters Plant Sale

May 17 – 18 as well as May 31 – June 1.
8:00am – 4:00pm
Glenn Walters Nursery
Oregon’s largest woody ornamental growers of trees and shrubs opens their doors once a year to the public.
I recommend going if you are searching for the perfect specimen tree to add into your landscape this season.

When I worked at GWN, I was assigned the Simon Cowell, American Idol judge, backyard boxwood project.
That story is for another day and multiple blog postings.

Make sure to stop by Blooming Junction which is on the way. Grace Dinsdale from Blooming Nursery opened a landscape yard April 26 to sell her fabulous perennials directly to the public.

FarWest Tradeshow: August 23 – 25

What a difference a year makes! Last year I was at Kraemer’s Nursery as their New Product Development Marketing Coordinator. This year, I am assisting Maria Zampini launch her new business UpShoot LLC.
UpShoot assists ornamental woody shrub and tree growers nurture new plants into successful products marketed to chain stores and independent garden centers nationwide.
It’s been really busy getting ready to strut our stuff at the FarWest Tradeshow in UpShoot’s Booth #2047…. from the website, pot wraps, tags, enewsletter campaigns and more. I would love to have the chance to show all of this to you in person!

A New Day, A New Direction, A New Dream

I was laid off from my “dream” job at Kraemer’s Nursery on August 31.  I created digital portfolios to showcase my work.
