Dates & Price

As we all continue to work together to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining spring classes and upcoming fall semester of Continuing Education classes slated to go on sale June 10.

Classes will resume in winter 2021.

Sunday, May 31, 2020
2:00–5:00 pm

Fee: $99

The ephemeral nature of unusual annuals, biennials, and half-hardy selections allows gardeners to explore the wide range of moments that encapsulate a season. Adding these plants into existing perennial beds or formal borders can spark interest during lulls in summer blooms, add a pop of color to a woodland edge, or invigorate a fading container design. Join Emma Seniuk as she shares her experience working with these underappreciated plants and how they integrate into permanent plantings. Following the lecture and demonstration, design your own container garden using these unusual plants to have an exquisite design that lasts throughout the summer.

Take home a selection of seeds to continue adding interest later in the season.
