New Dungeness Nursery sets landscaping classes

A free landscaping class for beginners and people new to the area starts Wednesday, Feb. 14, at the Sequim Prairie Garden’s clubhouse at Pioneer Memorial park, 387 E. Washington St., between noon-4 p.m.

This four-day class will be held on four succeeding Wednesdays.

The class also includes a personal free home visit to the participants’ home. The class covers the basics of gardening and planting in Washington state, low maintenance gardening and is based in the “Northwest Style” of landscaping — less formal than traditional landscaping and using plants available in our mild climate.

Doug Cockburn, president of class sponsor New Dungeness Nursery, is the presenter. Cockburn has been landscaping in the area for more than 45 years. The nursery hosts similar classes each winter.

For more about the class or about New Dungeness Nursery, call 360-681-0132.
