U.W. Botanic Gardens Class: Nontraditional Small Trees for the Urban Garden – Oct 26

UW Botanic Gardens: Nontraditional Small Trees for the Urban Garden

WHEN Wednesday, October 26, 2016, 8:30am – 12pm
WHERE UW Botanic Gardens-Washington Park Arboretum, Graham Visitors Center (2300 Arboretum Drive E, Seattle, WA 98112)

Finding attractive, functional small trees for small scale planting spaces is an ongoing design challenge.   Relying on pruning methods to maintain smaller tree sizes is not usually sustainable in the long run.  This session will take a look “outside the box” for some stunning opportunities for small scale trees with seasonal interest in fall and through the year.   How to select and train young specimens for optimal performance and appearance will also be covered.

This interactive class includes classroom and field segments. We will also discuss right plant, right place, sustainability, design functions and aesthetics, how plants change in the landscape over time, and incorporating new plants into old landscapes.

Cost: $65
