Education: Making A Garden Plan Class @ Heathcote Botanical Gardens

I will be presenting a garden planning class 10 AM Saturday August 11, 2012 at Heathcote Botanical Gardens in the office meeting room in the old house. Participants will make an actual plan on paper. We will learn about choosing a garden location, orientation of the garden, crop successions, preparing gardens and soil, companion plants, planting schedules for this region, using volunteer crops and thinnings in the plan, adding perennials, and planting annual polycultures. This class costs Heathcote Garden members $20 and non-members $25, and will last approximately two hours. To register call Heathcote Botanical Gardens 772-464-4672.
