Fern Class at the Miller Garden

JULY 8, 2015

If you want to get a little first-hand information about all those gorgeous ferns you fell for at Fern Fest recently, there are a few spots remaining in the July 8th fern class at the Miller Garden:    Ferns can be used in the garden for many design purposes, from a specimen to ground cover to foundation planting to “just because.”  Come to the Miller Garden for this class and we’ll stroll through the grounds with Richie Steffen, curator, as he shares his insights and observations on the collection in this worthy study garden. 
The class is hot on the heels of the newly published The Plant Lover’s Guide to Ferns, authored by Richie and Sue Olsen, making this is a great chance to see the information come alive.  This class could also give you ideas about all those gorgeous ferns you fell for at Fern Fest recently… There is a cap at 15 participants, so don’t overlook this!
