Let’s divide and conquer…PLANTS! Learning what plants you can divide will save you money and allow you to have more of the plants you love. Your instructor, Rebecca Turk, will demonstrate all of the basics to properly and successfully divide bulbs, grasses, perennials, and more. Rebecca will share industry tips and tricks that will aid in gardening success! All attendees will receive a handout and one plant division from the class.
