One of the most satisfying elements about gardening is when you create, by plan or accident, wonderful plant combinations. It's like assembling a new outfit -- a matter of blending similarities and differences in pleasing proportion to one another.

How do we create a color palette in the garden? We will talk about how to use form, texture and color to create contrast and harmony.

Gorgeous images illustrate how to apply design principles in the garden. By the end of the class, you will be inspired to try weaving plants into pleasing combinations. We offer a slide list to accompany the class so it is easy to identify plants you want to try.

Our speaker Laura Eyer is an Oregon State University Extension Master Gardener who teaches for the award-winning 10-Minute University™ Program. She designed gardens for others in the past and now gardens at home and on neighbors’ properties, usually with their consent.

This session will be recorded, and available 1-2 days following, posted on the Clackamas County Master Gardener Association website.
