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.
