(Webinar) Choose Plants Like a Pro

Wednesday, September 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$15.00 – $32.00

Once you’ve done the homework and decided what plants to buy, now comes one of the most exciting parts: bringing them home! Join us for a look at how you should choose the best plant to buy when visiting a nursery. Whether you shop at a retail nursery or work with wholesalers, choosing your exact plants from among the multitude available still takes a bit of discernment.

In the process, we will touch on the working relationship designers can build with suppliers and take a quick behind the scenes look at a wholesale nursery’s online ordering system.

Note: This webinar is a pre-requisite for the 9/13 “Field Trip- Wholesale Nursery” class.

Please note that this will be a live Zoom lecture and not a lecture at the Garden. After registration (see below), you’ll receive a Zoom link and lecture outline from the Program Director one day prior to the lecture. Registration will open 16 Jan 2024  and close on 11 September 2024 at 8am.  This class is part of the Dry Garden Design Certificate Program series.

How it works: Register one person with one email at a time. If you would like to register multiple people, please register them each separately with separate emails.  The webinar will be recorded and all registrants will receive a recording link within one business day.  Once the recording is sent, you will have seven days to watch the lecture. Access to the webinar recordings after the expiration date will be a charge of $15 (members) / $32 (non-members).

Cancellation and refund policy can be found here.
