Putting the Garden to Bed

Saturday, October 25th, 11 am – noon
Get your plants ready for winter. Deadheading, pruning, mulching, dividing, and weeding are all fall jobs that will help your garden bounce back next spring. Richard Greenberg teaches this every year to a grateful crowd.


Winter Containers and Holiday Whimsy

Saturday, November 8th, 11 am – noon
You can still have colorful plants adorn your entryway this season. And if you want, you can add some holiday cheer to them. Join Richard Greenberg in his last workshop of the season. It’s a fun one!


Pruning Apples (and Pears) and Espalier Basics

Sunday, November 9th, 11 am – noon
Apple and pears produce fruit on older wood and encouraging spur development produces more fruit. Espalier trees are great for spur production. The class covers the basics of apple/pear tree pruning and discusses how to develop an espalier tree. This workshop is the last in a series of co-sponsored classes with City Fruit.
