Perennial Plant Combinations - Online
Reviewed by Emily M. on 3/7/2021
This class, as taught by Sheri Forster, was an eye opener and horizon broadener for me, an amateur gardener without a lot of formal learning. However, there were Master Gardeners and nursery owners in the class as well and they had plenty of questions too, thoroughly and kindly answered. Great visuals and just a slew of new plants learned, in the context of when and where they flourish, always highlighting Natives and plants that support birds and pollinators. A great way to learn more about what to plant where and with what in your garden for beauty, health and visual interest in all seasons.
