Expand your palette of plants with information from this class. Each season the class covers another group of approximately 75 plants that thrive in North Carolina gardens, plus a few to avoid. You will learn identification skills and design use, and understand the culture of each plant. Class time is primarily outdoors, and each student will receive a portfolio of photos showing the plants studied that season.
