Edible Landscaping for Beautiful Veggie Gardens
Creating a garden design worthy of magazines isn't something you can just imagine.
BUT with this course and a little bit of your own creativity, you can maximize your harvest and create the garden of your dreams.
Joneve will guide us in how to make structures that support the harvest, plants that can be used as companion plants, herbs for medicinal uses and perennials to harvest and enhance your design and structure.
This course is for gardeners interested in refining their vegetable garden design to produce large amounts of vegetables in a more aesthetically pleasing garden.
In this 1.5 hour course, we will learn hands-on about:
* French Potage Design
* English Cottage Garden Design
* Structure Design with Natural Materials
* Edible Flowers
* Choosing Varietals for Aesthetics & Flavor
* Espalier Basics

And more. Join us and bring your questions and your plant problems.
