Watters Garden Center has announced that their popular free garden classes will resume in January. They take place on Saturdays at 9:30 AM at 1815 Iron Springs Road in Prescott. The classes are also live streamed on their Facebook page.
See their website for class updates and to confirm the events are taking place. Here is the January class schedule.
January 16 @ 9:30 am: Happy, Healthy Houseplants with Professional Style
We believe plants make people happier, and not just outside, but inside, too! Houseplants brighten our lives, clean the air we breathe, but not all are created equal when grown in an arid climate. You’ll learn the top plants grown indoors and how to care for them. Learn best practices for watering, light placement, and how to treat and prevent pests and problems.
January 23 @ 9:30 am: Top Local Landscapes with Flare
Any garden can pop with flares of color with the right plants. We’ll cover the best local companion plants—flowers, evergreens, and more–for maximum seasonal color, and the right places to place them for gardening success. Attendees will hear how our consultants help gardeners design new life for neglected, tired, or just blank slate landscapes. Bring a pencil and paper for notes, and questions for our experts after this class.
January 30 @ 9:30 am: Why January is the Month to Plant Wildflowers
Ready, set, grow! Late winter is the ideal window to start wildflower seed outdoors, but you can’t just chuck them in the landscape and expect success. We share all the local tips that ensure these bloomers blossom beautifully. You’ll know the best seed, soils, food, and techniques that bring on the color this spring.
