    How do you design a fabulous garden around a signature plant? That’s the question that Heritage’s Director of Horticulture, Les Lutz, will tackle in this second of three virtual webinars centered on garden design. Heritage is known for its amazing display of hydrangeas in July, and now you can learn how to achieve similar results at home! In this webinar, Les will cover the basics of how to care for these woody ornamentals – including best practices for pruning, plant siting, watering, and fertilizing – before giving program participants the building blocks for designing their home garden around these lovely perennial shrubs. Learn how color, texture, size, and shape influence the aesthetic appeal and health of the plants in your garden, along with which types of plants make the perfect companions for your hydrangeas. Armed with this information, you just might achieve a prize-worthy oasis in your own backyard!

    The live webinar will include time for questions, as well as a PDF of the slides for your reference. All program registrants will receive a link to the video recording, available for 72 hours after the event. Advance registration is required. Don’t miss the combination of inspiration and practical advice provided by this workshop – register today!
