Next Level Seminar: Planning for a 4 Season Perennial Garden

Join Hattie White for an in depth look at how best to create the garden of your dreams. Because our summers are fairly short, gardens that take into account the whole calendar are the ones that bring the most visual appeal. The added benefit of winter appeal is that it will attract birds to your property in winter and give you beautiful structure and contrast during the grey or snowy times of year. This workshop will help take the confusion out of planting for year round interest.  Whether this is for a specific area of your yard or for a dream garden for the future, this workshop will work through the basics of choosing the right plants for the space.  Come prepared with some basic information about your garden- how much light does it get, is it wet, dry or somewhere in between, what is the area like? In the workshop each participant will create custom plant lists and simple garden plants for their garden that will ensure year round interest with plants that will succeed.

As with all of our workshops, we create a fun learning environment with lunch and lots of fellow plant lovers. Bring a friend and make a day of it! If interested you may tour the greenhouses and herb farm after your workshop. $30 fee.
