Wint17Class:  Winterizing Your Garden
Saturday, Nov. 11 — 10:15am

Learn what to do now – and what NOT to do now – to get your garden ready for cold weather.  We’ll discuss the unique challenges (rain, ice, rain, heat wave, rain, snow, extended sub-freezing temps, rain) posed by winter in the Deep South and ways you can prepare your garden to most readily handle whatever conditions Mother Nature sends our way.

Some of the topics we’ll discuss include:

  • Watering: why, how often, & techniques
  • Mulching vs. top-dressing: what’s the difference
  • Mistakes that can compromise cold-hardiness: what to avoid
  • Soil testing, brush clearing, weeding & other fall tasks
  • Q/A session

Instructor:  Garden*Hood’s own Halley Beagle.  Halley shares practical, hands-on advice learned through years of experience working in public spaces, community gardens, and her own personal landscape in Decatur.

Class:  Houseplants 201 – RESCHEDULED from Oct. 28th
Sunday, Nov. 12 — 10:15am

This class takes you beyond the basics and delves into the more complex nuances and challenges of houseplant stewardship.

Some of the topics we’ll discuss include:

  • Troubleshooting problems – identifying symptoms of pests, diseases, and under-watering vs. over-watering
  • Fertilizer – how much, what kind, and how often
  • Watering & humidity management – tips for individualizing your watering routine

Instructor:  Garden*Hood nursery and landscape crew member Adam Busshaus.  Adam grew up in Florida where many of the plants we Atlantans know as petite houseplants grew to enormous proportions in the great outdoors.  Adam’s experience with the ways in which these tropical plants live and thrive in their natural habitat gives him special insider knowledge about how to successfully grow them indoors here in Zone 7b.
