Saturday, November 3, 2012, 10am – 12pm
Instructor: Riz Reyes, UWBG Soest Gardener
Join the Soest Garden gardener Riz Reyes for this hands-on workshop on fall perennial garden care. Walk the extensively planted beds and learn about which plants to cut back now, and which ones to leave until spring. Learn how to divide and transplant specific types of plants, and some tricks and techniques for maintenance practices that create visual appeal for the dormant season. Riz will also share his favorite “tried and true” selections for fall interest. Participants should bring their own hand-pruners, gloves, and hori-hori soil knife, and dress for the weather.
