By Sharon Dowdy

Commercial landscapers, and novices, too, will learn how to add color to landscapes at the All About Color workshop set for Friday, Nov. 11 on the University of Georgia campus in Griffin, Ga.

The class will meet from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the UGA Research and Education Garden on Ellis Road. The cost of the program is $50 and includes program materials, lunch and refreshments.

Participants will learn how to use annuals, perennials, shrubs and woody ornamentals to emphasize color in landscapes. Container combos and plant recommendations will also be covered. Weed identification and control will be discussed, as will cultural practices that ensure plant health.

Pesticide credits in category 21 and 24 have been applied for. The workshop is sponsored by the UGA Horticulture Department and the UGA Center for Urban Agriculture.
