Thursday, March 9

Postponed due to weather; new date Thursday, April 6

6-8:30 pm

Professional Gardener Cindy Cali, CNLP, will discuss how she grows perennials for every situation, for a clean, healthy, well-maintained garden that ‘flows’. Topics to be discussed include how to properly plant perennials, the upkeep needed for a garden that continues to be pleasing to the eye throughout the seasons, and, the key to lower maintenance: putting the right perennial in the right place. She will explain how to interpret the signs that plants give if something is wrong, and how to know if appropriate pruning will create a second flush of bloom. You’ll learn which plants you may not want to use, no matter how great they look or sound in the nursery, as well as about lots of garden-worthy plants for a variety of situations, and the all-important details of their maintenance requirements for good performance.

This class is a component of the Rochester Civic Gardener's Certificate, but may be taken individually if space allows.
