Small efforts for big, year-round impact 

Planting Fall Perennials for Summer Blooms and Year-round Interest

A garden is in a constant state of growth and change from season to season and year to year. The gardener should use this constant change to their advantage. 

Participants will learn how a few small efforts can make their gardens, whether mature or newly developing, a better-designed space with year-round interest.
