Back to the Classroom

I will bring along a few copies of my book "Basic Gardening - A Guide for the Deep South".

This spring I am going to leave the garden for a day or two and go back to the classroom.

I am teaching two continuing education classes at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi.

On Saturday January 29 I will teach “Make More Plants – Plant Propagation Techniques”.  This will be a hands on Plant Propagation class.   We’ll plant seed, take hardwood cuttings, divide perennials.    I will also talk about collecting seed and setting up a small backyard nursery space.   As an added incentive, each participant should leave with some plants!

On Tuesday evening March 15, I will present a slide show about how I use native plants in my garden.  Then we will discuss “Native Plants and Wildflowers in the Garden”.

You can find more details or register by going to the Millsaps Winter Enrichment Classes site.

This is my first time to teach at Millsaps so I am the new kid on the block. Please register early (ideally by January 25) so that we can assure that both classes will make.

Hope to see you in Jackson!
