NPG: Maintenance

A common misconception about native plants is that once they are in the ground they require no maintenance. Topics will include basic plant morphology and physiology, selecting the right tools for the job, watering guidelines and water conservation, fertilizers, soil additives, mulches, pruning, trimming, mowing, grooming, cold and heat protection, gardening hazards and gardener's health.

This course is part of the Native Plant Gardening Certificate Program.  You can receive an additional 10% off this class by enrolling in the six-class Certificate Program.
