Join a study group taught by staff at the Berkshire Botanical Garden to consider plant groups of particular interest to the staff. Look first at the late summer/early fall perennials that go the distance in the autumn garden. The following week will investigate the important role that grasses play in the garden. The final class will focus on woody plants that brighten the late summer garden with beautiful fall foliage. The classes meet on three consecutive Wednesdays, September 11, 18 and 25. Classes can be attended as a series or individually. See September 11 listing for description of whole series.
Grasses in the Garden – September 18
The stature, movement and rustling of grasses make these tough plants unique in the perennial border. Join Elisabeth Cary and discover reasons for using grasses and how to place and select the right plant for any garden. Explore the beautiful grasses—some known and others relatively unknown—for every habitat from a dry sunny location to wet shady spots. This program is designed for gardeners new to grasses.
