Horticulture for the Home Gardener

Join PHA Grounds Manager Ian Jochems for a look at the basics of horticulture. The class will cover the Arboretum’s compost and mulch operation, and how you can replicate it in a home garden setting. Participants will also learn about plant divisions and care, soil amendments, basic integrated pest management (IPM), and will get hands-on practice with various tools. This class will be entirely in the field; participants should dress appropriately and bring gardening gloves.
