All you need is some shade and the right combination of plants to provide color and texture and… you’ve got it made in the shade! Let’s do this together.

Pruning Basics, Wednesday, March 28, 7-9 pm, with Paul Lyons and Ralph Goldrick, $15, This workshop will cover the basics of pruning common plants, including shrubs and trees, for the health of the plant and the shape you desire. Shaping your plants with the “look” you envision for your landscape is personal to each homeowner, so we will discuss height, form and function, future growth, and the overall health of each plant to help you develop the landscape that you will enjoy.
