Saturday, March 5, 2016 10am-11:15am.  Pruning Basics

Early March is still a great time to prune many trees and shrubs while still dormant.  Learn the basics to pruning trees, shrubs, and fruits.  We will talk about the best times to prune various varieties, methods, and tools.

Saturday, April 2nd, 10am-11:15am. New Plant Fashion Show

Join us in our production greenhouse to learn about new plants for 2016 as our staff plant “models” dress like the plants!  Get inspired for spring and learn what is new in annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, and products for 2016.

Saturday, April 9th 10am-11:15am. Fairy and Miniature Gardening Basics

Learn the basics to get started with miniature gardening.  We will talk about indoor and outdoor options and cover container styles, plant options, soil, site, and care.  We will not be creating planters in the class, but will show you how.  We will have products available to purchase and can assist you with selecting items after class.

Check back-we may add a class the end of March and/or Mid April.  Feel free to e-mail requests!
