Fee: $50.00 Non‐Master Gardener $40.00 Master Gardener

There are more than 20 different genus of conifers hardy enough to be grown in CT. Each conifer genus has specific cultural requirements, such as soil type, wind and sun exposure, and microclimate preferences. This class will focus on each Genus, starting with Abies (the Firs), and will finish with Xanthocyparus (the Alaska‐cedar). In between we will look at each species and their individual garden preferences. Along with the slide presentation there will be clippings of plants brought in for examination
