Spring Gardening Classes for Beginners

Feb 15, 2016

IMG_6306Though we’ve been planting herbs, flowers, cacti, and vegetables for decades, the fact that we’ve never succeeded in establishing a thriving, blooming, surviving garden means we still classify our educational level as beginner, as that sounds more hopeful than doomed to fail.

Thanks to information provided by Pasadena native and Master Gardener Yvonne Savio and her Gardening in LA blog, hope springs eternal: spring gardening classes for beginners.
