This class is for all those people who go to the nursery or greenhouse, see 50 seemingly identical plants and just throw up their hands. Which one to choose? Aren’t they all the same? Bare root, ball and burlap or container? And all I need to do at home is just dig a hole and plop it in right?
Or maybe you have purchased plants before, (expensive plants, too!), only to have them mysteriously kick the bucket a year or two later. Find out what could have gone wrong and how to stop it from happening again. (No more wasted $$!)
Emily Bishton will demystify this process. Learn how to pick the best plants from the greenhouse by choosing those with the best root and branch structure, and predicting how they will grow in the future. Once you’ve picked your perfect plant, find out how to plant, mulch and water it properly. With these tips, your plants will bring you joy and beauty for years to come!
