Conifers for Colorado Landscapes & Gardens - ONLINE
Rocky Mountain Gardening Required Course Group II
Discover the beautiful and easy-care world of conifers in this three-hour online session. We will cover a wide range of species and varieties suitable to our Colorado conditions and climate, including their selection, planting and care. There will be opportunities for questions throughout, and at the end we will tie it all together with a short, interactive review. Our goal is to give each student a new appreciation for the diversity this group of plants can offer to our local gardens and landscapes.
