Next Level Seminar: Planning for a 4 Season Perennial Garden - Back by Popular Demand!

  • Red Wagon Plants 2408 Shelburne Falls Road Hinesburg, VT, 05461 United States (map)

Back by popular demand! This workshop sold out quickly in May and we're offering it again so that you can learn how to create the garden of your dreams.

Join Hattie White for an in-depth look at how best to plan your garden for year-round success. 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 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 you're planning for a specific area or for a future garden, this workshop will help you choose the right plants for the space. Come prepared with some basic information about your garden, such as how much light it gets, whether it is wet, dry or somewhere in between, and what the surrounding area looks like. Each participant will create custom plant lists and simple garden plans to ensure year-round interest with plants that will succeed.

$45 includes resources and light refreshments.
