Ellen Ashley’s Hands-On Gardening Classes

Hello My Fellow Gardening Enthusiasts!

The last gardening class of the season is coming up on September 19th, course description is below. That period of early fall -after a long hot summer and before the leaves turn in late October- is perhaps our most challenging season in the garden. Bring it it on! Fall can be fabulous!  Come join me for class and bring a friend.  (You must call, text or email to register, see below.)

Warm Regards,


Course #6 – Garden Design, Adding Fall Color, the Season Wrap-up

Thursday, September 19 at 2-4:30pm.                    Course Fee $30.

Garden Design Principles.   Fall is the perfect time to look around your garden with a critical eye. The ‘bones’ of your garden can be seen when the leaves have fallen and the perennials disappear for the winter. We will examine WHY a garden scene is pleasing to the eye.  Looking at specific components of the scene will uncover ideas that you can use in your own landscape design.

Learn how to add excitement to your Fall & Winter Gardens.  The Piedmont Triad is blessed with wonderful autumn leaf color. Make sure your garden has even more with fabulous Japanese maples, fall blooming camellias, asters, 6 foot tall ginger, helianthus, grasses, sedum and more. You will learn about keeping your winter garden beautiful with evergreens, berries, colorful bark, bulbs, stone and interesting textures.

Fall gardening tasks: Harvesting the last of your herbs before frost, planting garlic & spinach, what seeds to sow in fall for spring flowers, and what to do with leaves.  Learn about frost protection to make the last of your fall vegetables hold weeks longer through the cold. All about the what, when and how much of “mulching”.
