Do you have a pond but are wondering what plants to use in and around it? In this class you’ll learn about plant selection and design ideas for your backyard water feature – inside and out! Your pond or water feature should be more than an addition to the garden – it should be an extension of it!  Learn from professional landscape designer Val Engel and pond expert Derek Van der Hoeven  as they discuss how to landscape the inside of our pond with aquatic plants, as well as selecting plants for the edge of your pond and the surrounding landscape. We’ll help you bring out the best in your pond and make it a showcase area! Class is free but please register in advance.
