I'll be teaching the following classes
at the Chicago Botanic Garden in spring:
Your Garden with Plants. Saturday, March
29 (Take both classes--sun and shade--and get a discount.)
Designing the Sunny Perennial Border 10 a.m. to Noon: The well-designed border wears
a combination of perennials, annuals, and shrubs that provide three seasons of color and winter interest. This class will
discuss how to artfully combine plants with an emphasis on the use of color, texture and form. Whether you are a new gardeners
or you have an established border in need of updating, this class is for you.
Designing the Shade Garden 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.: A garden shaded by
trees or buildings is often a challenge for the gardener who is faced with low light levels, tree roots, and soil that is
often dry. This class provides solutions and ideas for artful plantings that can help you create effective combinations that
consider color, texture and form. Ideal for those who want to enhance an existing shade garden or plan a new one.
