This year's class at Merritt College was on Saturday,

February 11, 2017 and was well attended. 

The next class is scheduled for February 10, 2018.

This class covers all aspects of wisteria, including

botany, choosing a plant, problem solving, and

pruning and training. 

I also taught this class to the Marin Master

Gardeners on January 6, 2016.

The class on summer pruning of wisteria

at the Hakone Gardens in Saratoga was a big success, too!
