Gen(i)us Program
"Planting for Winter Interest" with Richie Steffen

Gardening does not end in the fall as the leaves drop. Our mild climate offers the opportunity to have beauty year round in our gardens and winter is no excuse. Richie will present ideas for a winter landscape that will hold your interest and make you want to enjoy your garden during our darkest and coldest months.
