The back bone of her garden consisted of hardy annuals that she either saved seeds from or simply waited for them to return on their own. Join us for a look at the plants that started me off in Horticulture and a glimpse at what a great grandmother I have. Though she might not remember how to garden I know she would have loved this class! Each participant will receive several packets of seed so they can have a sample of Maw Maw’s flower garden.
