We have been very pleased with the response to our perennial plants classes. During the last few years, visitors have come from several states to learn from our interactive series of gardening classes and expert instructors.
We hope you will join us this year for one or all of the following sessions. If there is a topic that you would like to see covered that we do not already offer, please let us know.
Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. To register, call 919.772.4794, fax your order form with the class title and date to 919.662.0370, sign-up via the website, or e-mail us at email@example.com. We will confirm your registration by phone two or three days prior to the class. If a class is already full when your registration is received, you will be notified at that time. You must pay in advance to reserve your place as classes quickly sell out. Cancellations must be made 3 days in advance of each class. We reserve the right to cancel a class due to forces (hurricanes, ice storms, floods) beyond our control. If a class is cancelled, we will notify you and refund any prepaid registration.
The following perennial plant classes are scheduled for 2013...
Call to be added to the WAIT LISTSaturday, June 1, 10am-4pm
Our interactive propagation workshop has become one of our guaranteed sellout classes each year. The day-long hands-on workshop will cover an amazing array of propagation techniques including seed, cuttings, divisions, plant breeding, and darn near everything but grafting. The focus of the workshop is perennials, but the techniques can be adapted to most plants. By the time you are finished, you'll leave with lots of goodies and feel ready to start your own nursery. The class is held in our non-air conditioned shipping shed, so it may be quite hot during the class...dress accordingly. (Lunch on your own.)
June is an amazing month between our open house dates when visitors miss many of the late spring goings on in the garden. Join Tony for this two hour class...an interactive outdoor walk through our extensive botanical gardens, discussing the plants in the garden, and how and why they grow. Come prepared to write as we send you on plant overload.

With the increasing interest in soil care as a means of avoiding plant stress and subsequent pest problems, the demand for this class has risen each season. The interactive lecture will cover nutrient balance, soil test reports, how to incorporate organics, taking care of microbes, and an array of misconceptions regarding planting techniques. If you have soil test reports, be sure to bring them to class.

October is a transitional month in the garden, as the plants of summer begin to fade and the stars of the autumn garden begin to shine. Join Tony for this two hour class...an interactive outdoor walk through our extensive botanical gardens, discussing the plants in the garden, and how and why they grow. Come prepared to write as we send you on plant overload.
