Description of the Event:
Get Planting with Bare Root Plants!!!!
Michigan gardeners carefully await their local frost-free dates to plant colorful perennials in their garden. Sometimes this seems like forever! During the class, you can get a jump on spring planting by learning the many attributes of choosing bare-root plants. Fully dormant, bare root perennials will acclimate naturally to your soil type and growing environment and are never jeopardized by excess organic media left on the root ball. We will also explore a rich pallet of perennials to add interest, seasonal color and pollinator resources in your perennial garden. Check out the bare root plant sale too!
