In the Garden: Renowned hybridizer works to make roses easy, even in cooler climates - The Spokesman-Review
On June 22, roses will be in the spotlight for the Spokane Rose Society’s 72nd annual rose show. Located at CenterPlace in Spokane Valley, the show’s featured afternoon speaker will be renowned rose hybridizer Ping Lim.
Originally from southern Laos, Lim has had a long association with this magical flower.
“At the age of 10, I first saw roses during a family vacation to a French resort in Paksong plateau,” he recalled during a recent phone interview. “At that moment, I was overwhelmed with their beauty. Their intoxicating fragrance soon had me fantasizing about becoming a rose grower.”
After graduating from Taiwan University with a horticulture degree, Lim immigrated to the United States in 1981. He was a rose breeder assistant at DeVor Nurseries in Pleasanton, California, and later hired by Bailey Nurseries near Portland where he worked as rose research director from 1992 to 2008. He is now employed by Altman Plants in Vista, California, as ornamental plant research director.
Roses have had a reputation in the past for being difficult to grow. Lim’s main goal with his rose-breeding work has been to make them easy to care for.
“There are more than 26,000 roses available commercially today... Nov 15, 2018
Day of the Dead celebration set for Friday at Valley Hazen and Jaeger
On Friday, the Hispanic Business/Professional Association will host its fourth annual Day of the Dead celebration at Hazen and Jaeger Funeral Home in Spokane Valley.
"Even though Día de los Muertos comes annually around Halloween, it's not the same," said HBPA president Larry Valadez. "During this time, we celebrate the loved ones in our lives who have passed on."
The event has been so well-received that its outgrew its former space at Hennessey Funeral Home on North Pines Road, and this year moved across the street to Hazen and Jaeger.
Memories and music are at the heart of the celebration. Mariachi Las Aguilas from Eastern Washington University will play during the event, and traditional dancers will perform Danza Mexica.
HBPA member Abigail Bocanegra will dance, and is also leading a team in the creation of the focal point of the Day of the Dead – the altar.
"Día de los Muertos is based on a sacred pre-European tradition – a time that we honor our ancestors and loved ones who have passed on," Bocanegra said. "It was originally an Aztec tradition held in August, but when the Spanish arrived, they matched it with All Saints Day and All Souls Day on Nov. 1 and 2. You will see a lot of Mexica tradition mixed with symbols of Spanish Catholicism."

Gardening: Spangle-area gardener receives June garden of the month honor
Gardening learning curves can be steep when you move from Southern California's year-round gardening season to Spokane's four-season mishmash of microclimates. Just ask Carolyn and Monty Nesbitt when family pulled them from Indio, California, to the scabland area just west of Spangle 10 years ago.
After gardening in a year-round climate Carolyn said her biggest challenge was figuring out when it was really spring.
"Everyone said you couldn't plant until the snow was off Mica Peak," she said. "That didn't happen until late May!"
Then there was figuring out what USDA zone her basalt rock microclimate was in.
"I grew all kinds of citrus trees in Indio."
But garden she did, and she recently won the June Garden of the Month contest from the Inland Empire Gardeners.
The Nesbitts' garden has sweeping views of the basalt outcrops and swales of still-green grass and gnarly pines characteristic of the channeled scablands. Building off the natural landscape, Carolyn filled the beds around their house with perennials and wildflowers with a few trees and shrubs thrown in for interest. In beds right off h... Mar 23, 2018

Community Garden displays fruit of labor, donating to locals
During these snowy winter months, sun and fresh produce may seem sparse. The Episcopal Church of Resurrection, located in Spokane Valley, works to combat bleak days by using their green thumbs to bring sunshine to those in the Spokane community. Dr. Adam Bartholomew, an adjunct religious studies instructor at Gonzaga, along with Pat Munts, small farms and urban agriculture coordinator at Washington State University Extension, and members of the church contribute to a community garden in Spokane Valley. The food that is grown is given to food banks including Second Harvest, Spokane Valley Partners Food Bank and Northwest Harvest. “The parish has had this land for decades,” Munts said. “I think what inspired people first was, ‘We have this land sitting here doing nothing, can we grow something on it either for ourselves or for donation to the food bank?’ and I think that’s what originally got [the garden] started.” According to Munts, the garden was started in spring 2013, when she, Bartholomew and other parishioners built 48 boxes, each 4-by-12 feet, to grow various vegetables that are donated to food ba...Oct 19, 2017
Hurricanes, Marijuana Affecting Local Florists
Kiger said her shop was hit with various speed bumps this summer. A popular flower wholesaler in Spokane closed down, affecting one method of supply.A different kind of natural disaster also came into play: Shipments of carnations that come from Oregon and shipped via Yakima and Spokane were stalled because wildfires had closed Interstate 84.“A few weeks ago, I had to call (a client) and say, ‘I’m so sorry,'” Kiger said. “We had no carnations.”Economic forces are also part of the equation, Kiger said, with farms in California uprooting their flower products and planting marijuana as a cash crop instead now that it is legal there.Before the Spokane wholesaler closed, Kiger said they informed her that the prices for Gerbera daisies would be increasing because the farm they normally use was switching over to cannabis.There are plenty of places to get flowers, she said, with great farms in Canada and California still stocking florists’ shelves. Most floral shops in the Flathead Valley have learned to diversify, especially when it comes to shipping in flowers.Most shops don’t rely on air travel, Kiger said, instead opting for driven deliveries. But if the flowers are coming from Spokane and the mountain passes between here and there are snowed in, for example, the deliveries just don’t get filled.“If they can’t get to us, they can’t get to us,” Kiger said.Comments comments...
