Introduction to and Design of Perennial Gardens.
Saturday, August 3, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
Perennial gardens are a great way to keep your yard looking great every year. You can start small and keep adding a plant or two every year. In this class we will talk about the hows, whys, and wheres about perennial gardens. We will talk about where in your yard you would like to place your garden. We will talk about preparing your garden plot. We'll look at what plants work in sun and shade. We will have plenty of discussion and lots of books and resources on hand. The best part is that everyone goes home with a $25 certificate to Twin Orchards Nursery in Shorewood, MN ( http://www.twinorchardsnursery.com/ ). Twin Orchards specializes in perennial production and has thousands of plants to choose from. We are hoping to have one of the guys from Twin Orchards here to answer questions you might have.
