Small Shrubs With Big Impact (Webinar)

small shrubs webinar

Webinar Details

Many modern landscapes are small. The amount of space we have to garden is shrinking as people want the blend of suburban life along with the conveniences of city living. Even where space might be available, a lot of avid gardeners still have other interests and obligations, leaving less time to cultivate a large plot. When space and time are at a premium, turning to small shrubs can be the answer. In this webinar, Mark Weathington, director of the acclaimed JC Raulston Arboretum in North Carolina, will share some of his top shrub picks for creating diversity, interest, and excitement where space is limited and every plant must earn its place in the garden.

Wednesday, October 20

7pm EST

Seminar: Approx. 1 hour followed by 30-minute Q & A
