"Your method is far superior to my past practice. I used to go from plant to plant filling in space without a plan. I ended up with too many plants and a hodge-podge of colors & plant types. I'm excited to see this bed next summer!"

About Your Instructor

Hi! I'm Cheryl, and I believe life is too short for ordinary gardens.

The first flower garden I ever planned was a disaster! I struggled to find plants that could tolerate the shade, heavy clay soil, and lack of water in that bed. I planted some plants too close together and chose a few thuggish plants that sent their seeds far and wide throughout my garden.
I was determined to make it work, so I learned as much as I could about proper plant selection and spacing. 
Now, garden planning feels easy! I know what plants will be happy in my garden. And I've pulled together everything I've learned about garden planning and created a course that'll help you easily plan your next garden bed.
