Classes meet on Tuesdays, 6-9pm: September 2, 9, 16, 23, 2014.

Learn about the basic herbaceous plants used in the garden setting including identification, planting, fertilizing, pest control and pruning.  Perennial selection will be the focus although some time will be spent on annuals and bulbs.  This offering is essential for the serious gardener. Students should dress for outdoor field study including sturdy waterproof footwear and warm outer clothing.  This class can be taken as a core requirement for the Horticulture Certificate Level I program, or as an individual class.

Instructor – David Burdick, B.S. a distinguished plantsman and zealous collector, shows regularly at the American Daffodil Society exhibition.  A practicing horticulturalist, he has worked at Berkshire Botanical Garden and Windy Hill Farm.  An engaging teacher, his latest venture is a specialty plant and cut flower business at Holiday Farm, Dalton, Massachusetts.

Discounted price for 4 Fall Level I courses: $590
