Public gardens are some of the best places to see high-impact, high-quality horticulture. Regional tradition, enthusiasm, and great gardening come together across every corner of North America in these wonderful gardens.
Visiting public gardens in your own region is without a doubt one of the best ways to make your own home garden better. Most public gardens are dedicated to educating the public about plants, gardening, and the natural world. This is a golden opportunity for both newbie and seasoned gardeners to find new plants and design ideas that really work.
This webinar will happen in two parts. First, we will talk about how to get the most out of visiting a public garden. Next, we will spend a considerable amount of time on some very practical tips to help you put newfound inspiration into practice. This will include and focus on proper planting techniques for trees and shrubs. Questions like: Should I prune trees at time of planting and more will be answered.
Learn how to bring home the best ideas from your local botanic garden and implement them in a manageable way in your own beds and borders.
