Last Call for Perennials

Did you know that fall is the best time to divide many perennials? You could be doubling your plants and sharing them with friends.

Who loves herbal vinegars?

This past weekend we harvested herbs for the Herbal Vinegar Class. There's Cuban Basil and La Crema Sage. Ole Kentucky Mint and Bronze Fennel. 3 kinds of Oregano - Oh the fun we'll have concocting wonderful herbal vinegars!

There is still some room -- please let us know if it is morning or evening class that you are interested in in the text of your email. Friday, October 14.

Citrus and Spice and Everything Nice

How many of you know Well Sweep Herb Farm?

It's filled with plant treasures and we have one of them teaching here! David Hyde, owner of this unique nursery, is coming with all kinds of spice and citrus trees.

Treat yourself to this class and a tree to coddle this winter. This summer, it will reward you as a conversation piece and a container plant in your garden.

David has requested that we limit the number of registrants, so please do not wait until the last minute to register. Saturday, November 12th.
