Course Summary

Help feed the bees when food is scarce – in the winter! This presentation focuses on plants that bloom in the winter months of the Southwest when both nectar and pollen are otherwise scarce. Many of the plants featured are also low-water native plants that can be found relatively easily in regional nurseries. Award-winning garden writer Dr. Jacqueline Soule will discuss and show images of some of a range of winter blooming landscape plants that do well here.

Combine this cross-country experience with summers in Vermont and an internship at the Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia, and this means she has gardened in almost every corner of the USA!  This also means that she can help you better understand how unique gardening here is here in the desert - and how to shift your gardening practices to succeed with your gardening goals here in the Land of El Sol.
