Dianna Gibson, owner of B&D Lilies in Port Townsend, is coming to Friday Harbor on Tuesday, Nov. 5 for a presentation on lilies and lily culture at the monthly meeting of the San Juan Island Garden Club.

B&D Lilies is a family-owned and operated farm specializing in garden-tested bulbs for over 35 years. Known for oriental, trumpet, Asiatic species and various types of hybrid lilies, B&D ships bulbs to a broad range of climates in the U.S. The Pacific Northwest is one of the finest lily growing areas in North America.

Dianna’s presentation will cover lily varieties, culture, climate suitable selections, soil conditions and techniques for growing lilies in containers for deer-challenged gardeners. She will bring a selection of lilies available for purchase, handouts on lily culture and some potted lilies for door prizes.

The meeting begins at 1 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 5, at the Mullis Center. Visitors are welcome.
