About the Event
Learning new plants and using the plant matrix as a tool gives you confidence when choosing plants that thrive in mountain climates. In this course you will build a foundation in botany, horticulture, and soil science. After the lecture, we will carpool to Highlands Lawn & Garden Nursery where we will study plant sizes and shapes with a narrative tour. Afterwards you will feel confident that you have the expertise to choose the right plant for the right place and the opportunity to use your plant matrix.
