Have you ever wanted to plant a destination annual garden where your grin begins when entering? This class involves inexpensive and EASY ideas for your garden to create a WOW effect - from pathways to focal points to hardy veggies to forests of TALL plants. We’ll talk about planting 10’ tall sunflower houses, curving a drip system to a giant spiral, 14’ broomstick sorghum plants, dragon tongue beans, teepees of scarlet runner beans and bird house gourds, heavenly sturdy collard plants, laying down tree trunk slices as stepping stones, rows of waving millet, indeterminate tomatoes and 4’ long trombetta squash growing up over a 16’ cattle panel easily bent into an arch, Amaranth volunteers, the Three Sisters corn/beans/squash combo, overwhelming rows of 4 o’clocks, zinnias, and marigolds, gigantic Angel’s Trumpet plants, Castor Bean “trees” – to name just a few! Come join the fun. Your wildlife, butterflies, bees, AND children will thank you!
