Join longtime Longwood instructor Susan Brutico as she leads you through the steps Longwood horticulturists take to ensure our beds look their best in late winter. 

Start your experience with a lecture covering techniques and timing of planting, dividing, and mulching to soil amending, tips for using the best tools, and a look at perennials with winter and early spring interest. Learn how to grow perennials in containers or how to incorporate perennials into your own garden.  Then, enjoy a stroll through our Gardens with Brutico while observing perennials firsthand and discussing what you’ve learned.


In Longwood's Visitor Center Auditorium and throughout the Gardens. 

This program will take place partially or entirely outdoors. Please dress for the weather and wear footwear suited for walking on uneven paths and through wet areas.
