Conifers can create year-round interest in the garden. Learn about these versatile evergreens during a free workshop Saturday at Quarryhill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen.

Sonoma County Master Gardener and American Conifer Society member Sara Malone will talk at 10:30 a.m. about how to plant conifers for texture and color. That will be followed at noon by a brown bag talk by Quarryhill Director Bill McNamara on the conifer collection at Quarryhill.

At 1 p.m., docents will lead tours of the conifers and bonsai in Quarryhill's woodland garden. Snacks will be served. Anyone signing up for a Quarryhill membership will receive a discount on the membership fee and a free plant.

Quarryill is at 12851 Sonoma Highway; 996-3166 or quarryhillbg.org.
