  • This event has passed.

Well-planned perennial gardens provide a variety of textures and colors from spring through fall. Learn how to create a garden plan, select hardy native plants for shade, sun, wet, or dry areas, and properly prepare, install, and maintain the garden to ensure a healthy, beautiful composition of plants. Leave with a basic layout of a perennial garden that suits your site and helps benefit the local ecosystem. Please bring a snack and scale drawing of your yard. (Class size is limited.)

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Thursday, September 23
