Selecting Native Woody Plants

September 13 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Monday, September 13 and 20

This class is designed to increase participants’ knowledge and appreciation of North American woody plants useful in northeastern landscapes. We’ll cover the motivation and philosophy behind using these plants in the garden, discuss straight species, cultivars, and sources for materials. Andy Brand, the Gardens’ Curator of Living Collections, will expand on the ecological relationship between host plants and the insects and pollinators critical in maintaining the balance between management and reproduction. Class begins with an online lecture, then continues as a field study the following week to apply new knowledge and practice ecological observations of plant-pollinator interrelationships.

To provide safe in-person classes at the Gardens, classes are held entirely outdoors and have been reduced to 12 students. We are practicing Maine CDC social-distancing protocols.
