The rabbit’s eye view – long term plant performance
How long will plants survive? Will they spread? How will my new border look in five years time? This full-day garden-based workshop aims at encouraging participants to observe garden and landscape plants, focusing on their growth through the year, looking at how they compete with each other, how to assess prospects for their longevity and their suitability for a variety of garden locations. Gardeners and designers can then use their experience and knowledge of plants to plan for the maximizing of interest and the minimizing of maintenance at all seasons.
$500 per person ($100 is non-deductible)
