More than just living walls, vertical gardening techniques can be used to turn ordinary fences into focal point walls, disguise eyesores and grow everything from succulents to vegetables. Garden designer Susan Morrison will present highlights and images from her bestselling book, Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces. She’ll also provide an overview of some of the systems available for adding a touch of living art to a garden design. The class will be 45 minutes of instruction followed by Q&A. An electronic handout will be sent to you before the presentation listing the plants Susan will speak about so you don’t need to worry about taking notes!

This class will be held via Zoom. Attendees can join with a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device. If you do not have a Zoom account, download Zoom and create a free account prior to the class. Gamble Garden will email all registered attendees the class Zoom link 1-2 days prior to the class.
