Native Woody Plant Materials
September 16, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$160 - $200
Native trees, shrubs, and woody vines can provide a year-round framework for New England gardens. This course explores the diversity of our native woody species and their uses in home gardens and surrounding landscapes. We stress growth characteristics, cultural requirements, and the best horticultural uses of the woody plants currently commercially available. Which species grow well in heavy shade? Which can be used to support local wildlife and/or humans? Which work best in landscapes under heavy deer pressure? Learn how to stagger your plantings for continuous bloom, fruit production, and fall color. This intensive class will serve anyone wanting to work at a professional level but is also appropriate for the avid home gardener. The course includes lectures and walks in the Garden as well as a field trip to the Arnold Arboretum. Bring a bag lunch each day.
Directions to the program meeting location will be emailed to students upon registration.
