MSHS – Plants Ablaze: Design your Winter Garden for Color & Wildlife [Online]

Dec 06, 2022 6:30PM—7:30PM




Winter is the season Minnesota gardeners ignore when it comes to our landscapes. Believe it or not, you can turn your winter garden into one with brilliant color and texture. Our expert designer and horticulturist Gail Hudson leads this online class to show you how to plant your garden for fall-winter-early spring interest. The wildlife in your neighborhood will thank you for it, too!
