Join UT Gardens Director Emerita Sue Hamilton for an exploration of her newest garden endeavor. Since 2019 she has been building a gravel garden at her east TN mountain home. This method employs a gravel planting bed, a drought tolerant plant palette and thoughtful plant placement to create a beautiful low maintenance garden. Learn which plants to choose, how to prepare the soil and the benefit of this planting style. Class size will be limited to 15 participants.
