Garden Walk Schedule
December 2018-April 2019

Seasonal Garden Walks | December 4, February 5, March 5, April 2 OR April 9

Discover seasonal highlights in the Garden with a knowledgeable Garden Guide. Note: correct time for these walks is 10 – 11 am. Originally published as 11 am – 12 pm.

Captivating Tales from the Conservatory | January 24 OR February 9

Although it’s cold outside, you can take a “mini-vacation” inside the Garden’s conservatory. Visit the tropics and deserts. Look carefully at the beautiful plants that reside there – not just the orchids – and learn the major groups of plants, their origin, and fascinating facts about their growth patterns and environmental adaptations.

Small Spaces: Springtime in Virginia | March 9

Analyze the beautiful designs created by Garden horticulturists and consider how you can create your own version in containers, pot groupings, or small beds. Notice how evergreens, perennials, and seasonal annuals are mixed. Learn about ways to transition your “small space” throughout the spring and to save those spectacular spring-time bulbs for another year.


The spring/summer 2019 season of classes will publish on April 3, 2019.
