Annuals, Perennials, and Grasses with a Fall Twist
with Nancy Chennault,
Volunteer Coordinator for Castle Rock Blooms ‘Bloom Team’
Join Nancy as she shares her evaluations and experiences with annuals, perennials, grasses and shrubs with a focus on fall.
Nancy is currently the Volunteer Coordinator for Castle Rock Blooms ‘Bloom Team’. for the city of Castle Rock, WA in northern Cowlitz County.
Nancy’s career in horticulture began soon after graduating in 1972 from UW-Seattle.
In 1980 she and her husband, Jim started All Season Landscapes and then added a retail nursery and greenhouses in 1985, selling the business in 2005. In 2005 they created The Plant Station LLC. It includes display gardens, evaluating new plant material and providing limited specialty services to clients in Northern Cowlitz County area.
Since 2001 she has had the good fortune of being able to evaluate new plant introductions, grow experimental plants, trial and evaluate plant nutrition products and formulate specific custom soil blends. She never commits to something new, nor recommends putting a plant or a product into full production without ‘testing’ it and using it for a season to make sure it fits seamlessly into a grower’s production cycle.
She is a Cowlitz County Master Gardener and Master Diagnostician.
