Made for the Shade: Keepin’ it Cool

Shade plants in a planterHold onto your trees! Last summer was hot and dry – what will this El Nino year bring?

We love to relax under the cool shade trees provide, and watch the birds active in their sheltering limbs. But how do you work with this garden condition? There are plenty of plants that look great in the shade all year round from native plants to ornamentals and even some edible plants.

Instructor Amy Whitworth of Plan-it Earth Design will discuss the challenges of the shade garden including dealing with tree roots, improving soil conditions, watering strategies and how to make those dark spaces shine.

After the indoor presentation and answering questions, participants will walk with Amy through the garden to view specimens in their natural habitat.
