Grassy lawns are the single most popular groundcover, but they are not always the best choice for a location or the easiest to maintain. Old Saybrook landscape designer Kathy Connolly offers alternative strategies for covering ground. She explores low-growing, durable groundcovers, which include native ornamental grasses, flowering perennials, low-mow lawn mixes, sedum, ferns, moss, and more. An extensive handout accompanies the session. THIS IS THE RESCHEDULED DATE, due to weather. More

In this talk we look at the many possibilities for interest way past first frost. Karen Bussolini considers form, line, color, texture, plays of light and shadow, movement, sound, birds, surprises you find when you drag yourself out of the comfy fireside chair and go outdoors. Big structures carry the garden when details are buried under snow, evergreens provide color and form, deciduous trees and shrubs create form with lines. Seedheads and pods lend punctuation and texture and many herbaceous plants – our foul weather friends – persist well into winter. Weather permitting, we will take a stroll around the Bartlett Arboretum perennial gardens at noon to see and enjoy some of nature's poetic sights. This course requires a minimum of 15 students. More

Good garden design starts with an understanding of both the plants and the space that will be used. A “yard” is simply a space, while a “garden” has organization and purpose. This basic garden design class is being offered in the Vernon area this term. The first session covers identifying and defining your location’s specific purpose along with the nuts and bolts of basic design: tools, site analysis, measuring and color and design principles. Students will then have two weeks to develop a garden design on their own. We will share the results in the second session, along with suggestions and feedback. Students can work on a new or existing garden. More
