Spring is in full bloom and your landscape should be, too. With our free May garden class offerings, SCV Water will teach you how to cultivate a thriving landscape with proper plant care and by selecting the right perennials that will add charm to your landscape for years to come.

You’ve selected the plants – check! You’ve installed the plants in your landscape – double- check! But how do you care for them? Join us Thursday, May 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to learn about Caring for the Top 30 Plants for the SCV. Participants will learn maintenance techniques of the top 30 plants for the SCV (and others) so that they’ll thrive in our climate.

Want to find beauty in your yard year after year? Join us Saturday, May 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to learn how to Landscape with Perennials. These are plants that live two or more years and are well suited for the SCV climate. Participants will receive a list of perennials that can help spice up their landscape with texture and pops of color.

All classes are held at SCV Water, located at: 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita.
To register, and to see a complete list of classes for 2018, visit www.yourSCVwater.com or call (661) 513-1230 and sign up.

Note: The Caring for the Top 30 Plants for the SCV is a follow-up class to the Top 30 Plants for the SCV, but can also be attended on its own.

The instructor for the May 16 class is John Windsor. John is a Certified Arborist and a California Certified Nurseryman. He has been a Horticultural Advisor in the Santa Clarita Valley for the last 21 years. He has a teaching credential in Horticulture and teaches gardening and landscape classes at the local Adult School, and the Santa Clarita Department of Parks and Recreation.

The instructor for the May 18 class is Stephen Williams. Stephen received his horticultural training at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, California. He honed his skills at Descanso and Huntington Botanical Gardens where he worked as garden staff and plant propagator/nursery manager for ten years. He has been affiliated with U.C.C.E. Master Gardeners since 1996. Stephen is a Professor of Horticulture at Mt. S.A.C. where he has been teaching free, weekly home gardening classes for 10 years.
