Fall Gardening 2013
This event has concluded.
FALL IS A PERFECT TIME FOR GARDENING!
Don't put away your trowels and wheelbarrows just yet! Even though summer is coming to a close, there is still time to nurture your gardens and landscapes for fall and winter interest. Learn some of the tricks of the trade from a professional in one or two hands-on workshops held at UW-Whitewater this fall.
Native Plants For Wisconsin Landscapes
This workshop will focus on grasses, perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, and groundcovers that are native to Wisconsin. You'll learn some history of native plants, how they were used by early settlers, and how they received their common names. We'll talk about why it is wise to choose native plants for your landscape and shed light on some plants that are under-utilized in most gardens.
Instructor: Michael Jesiolowski
Plants For Fall and Winter Interest
Don't forget about your gardens and landscaping in winter! In this workshop, you'll learn about grasses, trees, shrubs, vines, and groundcovers that provide outstanding ornamental interest and which plants are best in the sunny, shady, dry, or wet parts of your landscape. We'll talk about color, fruit, and winter form for your gardens throughout the hars Wisconsin winters.
Instructior: Michael Jesiolowski
