Education is an important aspect of our company’s mission. One of the many ways we can help local gardeners become more successful is by offering gardening classes. This year we are pleased to offer an incredible selection of classes, workshops and events. Class topics will be on a variety of interests including hands-on workshops and will feature speakers with experience in their field. We are celebrating our 5th Anniversary in June and hosting two special seasonal festivals again this year! We hope you will join us in 2013 as we learn and have fun together. Come to Garden Adventures Nursery and let us help you rediscover the joy in gardening.
Classes are held at Garden Adventures Nursery in Nixa, MO. Need directions? Garden Adventures is located 2.8 miles west of Highway 160 on Highway 14.
Here's a look at some of the best new plants coming on to the market, as well as some old favorites making a come-back. Take advantage of our early order program and save$$$, order now & pick them up in the spring.
Lee Coates will be here again to take you a little further on down the path in Miniature Gardens. You might have the best container for your garden but then what do you do? He'll show you some of the best ways to decorate your gardens.
Brooks Brown from Wild Birds Unlimited will be with this day. The subject is a big one so we'll narrow it down a bit to one of bird watchers favorites-the Blue Birds. You'll know how to combine the houses, the food, and the plants in your gardens to get them flocking to your place.
With the large increase in backyard gardening and raising your own food, there are new-to-gardening people who have many questions. Even those folks who have not been gardening in years might be interested to have a review class, there is always something to learn! We'll have a brief overview of raised bed gardens, safe soil amendments, safe ways to control pests, etc. Jim Kohler will go over basics and there will be plenty of time for questions.
Patrick Byers, University Extension Office will be here to share with us his passion. The information is thorough and just in time for the spring growing season. It's a free class so make sure to come early to get a good seat.
Terrariums are back! A growing number of gardeners are capturing nature in miniature and under glass. So is it nature? Or is it art? This is hands on class so you can decide…. You will need to register and space is limited. Class fee this time is $10 and upgrades are available. (If we run out of space, we can always schedule another class.)
Follow us on facebook to get all the updates and class times. ‘Art in the Garden’ will be at Garden Adventures and a wonderful line-up of classes are scheduled at the Gardens at Woodfield as well. Go to www.azaleaassociation.com in April to get the full schedule.
Linda Bower will be here to take us through a wonderful lesson on 'Butterflies'. The four areas that she will cover are: 1) What is a butterfly garden? 2) What will you see in it? 3) How do you get started? 4) What should you plant? She is full of passion about this subject and her class will be worth the visit.
Create a wonderful work of art that you can frame and hang on the wall, or plant in a bowl for a centerpiece. Succulents are incredibly diverse, and can be used in many fashions.
The Garden Debut brand, managed by Greenleaf Nursery in Park Hill, OK is quickly becoming one of the most recognized brands in the nursery trade. They are developing and producing some of the most incredible new perennials, shrubs, and trees you will find anywhere. These are the people that are marketing our Princess Crapemyrtles.
Back by popular demand, MaMa Jean's Natural Market will be here to each us how to create incredible foods from what we grow in our own gardens.
If the past couple of summers have taught us anything, it's that we need to consider more drought tolerant plants in our landscapes.
It's no secret that Crapemyrtles are some of our favorite plants. The species is one of the most diverse in the plant world, short ones, tall ones, in all shades of pink, red, purple, and white. We will even take a peek into the future as we get a look at some new plants coming out of our breeding program. Maybe some of these will be Little Princesses, or maybe even a new series altogether.
