small plantMaster Gardener and Interior Designer Denise Maurer will be presenting a workshop entitled Small Space Gardening prior to the Friends’ of Prospect Park’s Hidden Garden Tour.

Gardening in a small space has its limits, but it need not be limiting. In a small garden, the gardener can pay attention to detail. You can keep on top of maintenance, while still having time to sit and enjoy your small garden. In fact, many small space gardens are designed around entertaining and sitting areas. Virtually any plant or garden style can be worked into a small garden space. Learn how to choose your site, develop your plant list and how to use gardening principles on a smaller scale.
