If you want less work and more beauty, stop relying on flowers for flash. Instead, go for colorful foliage that deciduous shrubs offer. With so many new little beauties to choose from, you’ll find they provide long-lasting color and texture flowers can’t compete with.
In this slide lecture, designer Christine Froehlich will show you how to cut back on garden maintenance and liven things up with a variety of shrubs she’s planted in her own garden and those she’s designed.
Handouts with plant lists and tips included.
I’ve attended Chris’s lectures for several years, and she never disappoints. Her lectures are clear and concise, with lots of concrete information useful to beginning or experienced gardeners, livened with personal anecdotes. Her talks are based on many years of experience as a teacher and garden designer, and it shows in the depth of the information she conveys and also in her very engaging way of interacting with the audience. One of the best speakers on all things gardening and garden design!
