Color in the Garden - Online Class
S20/122
Color is a primary component of most gardens, but often the only consideration given is to the gardener’s likes and dislikes.

This online presentation will cover the basics of color theory and examine how thoughtful, deliberate use of color can help achieve the desired garden experience. This is a non-interactive presentation, available for viewing between July 13 and 31. Supplemental information will be included. Upon successful completion of a short quiz, students will receive two educational hours and a certificate of completion. More
