Course descriptions:

Vines and Groundcovers- Add new colour to your landscape

When planning a landscape gardeners think first of trees, shrubs, and perennial flowers. There are many delightful Vines & Groundcovers that should also be included in the plant list. Vines are used to define spaces, block unsightly views, and add interest in vertical spaces. Groundcovers can be an interesting alternative to patches of lawn or fill in where other plants won’t grow. With a gallery of photographs, Horticulturist Lorraine Taylor talks about what grows here plus where and how to get these plants established. Take home some seeds for annual vines to grow in your garden.
