Description
The Long Term Performance of Perennials
a.k.a. "The Rabbit's Eye View"

How long will plants survive? Will they spread? Will they seed? This half-day garden-based workshop aims at encouraging participants to observe garden and landscape plants, primarily but not exclusively perennials, focusing on their growth through the year, looking at how they compete with each other, how to assess prospects for their longevity and their suitability for a variety of garden locations.
