Getting lawn and plants to grow under trees can seem like an impossible feat. There are so many issues—dry soils, tons of roots, dense shade, and more. Learn which plants are best suited to your trees and conditions, and how to successfully get them established. This new class lead by horticulturist and certified arborist Lucy Dinsmore provides inspiration from nature and designed gardens, and reviews tools of the trade and industry hacks to get it done right. A garden walk is included.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Saturday, June 18 (Rain Date: Saturday, June 25)
