Horticulture & Design Moments

Monthly programs provide helpful information and resources related to horticulture and floral design. In addition, at each meeting, either Horticulture Chair Millie Wilson or Design Chair Jen Donovan provides brief but useful tips about their respective areas--either in a handout or a quick reminder about plant care for the upcoming month or some aspect of design. Other members also contribute their ideas to benefit those who are new to gardening in Phoenix.
