Online Classes Offer Pointers on Herbaceous Perennials
The University of Georgia’s upcoming online courses for the landscaping industry include two perennials classes from long-time industry advocate and Greenhouse Grower Contributing Editor Allan Armitage. The courses are part of the university’s Principles of Turfgrass Management program, in which landscapers and master gardeners can learn to select and maintain different types of turf grasses and plants for a variety of conditions, such as drought, shade, and high traffic.
Here’s a quick look at the courses being offered by Armitage:
• Herbaceous Perennials for the Shade: Learn how to plant, propagate, and care for 18 perennials. You’ll learn each plant’s origin, characteristics, bloom time, flower structure, and optimum growing conditions.
• Herbaceous Perennials for the Sun: Learn how to plant, propagate, and care for 20 perennials. You’ll learn each plant’s origin, characteristics, bloom time, flower structure, and optimum growing conditions.
