All About Flower Gardening Webinar Package

$49.99

If you’re interested in growing flowers, flowering shrubs and vines, this All About Flower Gardening Webinar Package is for you! I have bundled together 9 of my webinars into a package that will help you grow Cottage Gardens, Pollinator Gardens, Bird Friendly Gardens, Bulb Gardens, Summer Bulks, Lilacs and Hydrangeas and Flowering Vines. I also included webinars on Native and Invasive Plants and Lawn Care including information on Growing a Bee Friendly Lawn.  

In each webinar I give specific tips on how to garden, show inspiring and descriptive photos of the topics and answer some common questions at the end. Each webinar includes a 1 hour powerpoint presentation followed by up to ½ hour of Q/As.

These webinars normally cost $9.99 each. However, in this package, the 9 webinars only cost $49.99. That’s a $40 saving!
