Master the Ultimate Mixed Border with Daniel Mount
April 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmMembers: $100.00 Non-members: $140.00
Series includes four classes: April 5, June 7, August 2 and October 4, 2017
Don’t miss this opportunity for an in depth study of the principles of mixed border creation and care. Attaining visual and cultural success with a multitude of plants is not always easy. Instructor and gardener Daniel Mount has spent the last 15 years designing, grooming and tweaking the borders at a private estate in Medina, where these classes will be held. His deep understanding of the conditions under which he is gardening, the various needs of plants and the clients desire for year-round interest has created a gallery of borders where he explores and plays with color and texture with a sprawling palette of plants. These borders have appeared on the Cover of Sunset (April 2005) and more recently Fine Gardening (Oct 2012).
This series of 4 classes over the course of a growing season will provide you with the information and inspiration you need to design, install and maintain the ultimate mixed border. Returning to the same garden over a six month period will give you a chance to understand the workings of complex borders.
