Nothing beats annuals for a big splash of summer color! Even a well-established perennial bed will benefit from the addition of these long-blooming accents. Join us as we navigate the uses, cultural requirements, pests, and diseases of the tried-and-true selections, as well as some new varieties. Discuss your favorites and discover some little-known gems.
This year, we have split our 6-week Annuals class into two parts. The second part will be offered as a 3-week class in 2020. There will be an exam after each part, and both parts must be passed for the course to qualify toward the Certificate of Merit in Ornamental Horticulture.
