Creating a Native Garden (212-244)

Tuesday evenings beginning April 10, Two Saturday field trips.

California natives are at last getting their day in the sun. For many very sound reasons, natives are one of the best ways to create gardens with plants appropriate to our locations and climate. From the more than 5,000 native species and varieties, gardeners can create almost any style garden for any situation.

This course will introduce you to ways of incorporating beautiful and appropriate native plants into your garden. You'll have a chance to see the diversity of shrubs, perennials, ferns, bulbs, annuals, and trees that can be used to define any garden space. We'll also talk about propagating and installing these plants. Two field trips will give you a first-hand acquaintance with many outstanding kinds.
