Thursday, November 10, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Winter Gardening: Challenges and Rewards


New England winters can be cold, long, and gray but our landscapes don’t have to be. Our gardens can still provide cheer even on the dreariest winter days. Get tips from Nate McCullin, Horticulturist of the New England Wild Flower Society,  for creating a landscape with year-round appeal as well as ideas to help your plants survive the season’s challenges such as damage from ice, snow, and voracious mammals. Learn about plants that provide color, texture, shelter, and food sources throughout the winter with a few surprises etched in along the way.  The class takes place at Garden in the Woods in Framingham on Thursday, November 10, from 1 – 4 pm.  Fee $36 member, $43 nonmember
