Fantastic Ferns Course Banner_-2.png

A hands-on, fun course that
helps you design and
plant your own native fern garden.

I absolutely loved your course! The venue you chose was beautiful. The lessons were executed professionally & perfectly detailed information was provided! Loved the pdf’s as well...especially the fern companions & whether ferns were runners or clumpers...very helpful!
— Cheryl Brown

The lessons are delivered in short, easily watched videos, usually with a quick assignment at the end to support you in getting your own garden planted.

This course is self-paced!
You can watch it all
in one afternoon,
then go back and
review one lesson at a time,
doing the assignments
as you go.

I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this course. Love the little individual lessons with an assignment following.

It’s laid out in such an easy-to-follow format—broken into manageable chunks.

Your explanations in each video are clear and uncomplicated for even the newest gardeners!

So let’s do it—let’s plant a
native fern garden at your
place! This could be the start
of many more native plants
in your landscape.

I’ve been through the whole course twice now, and enjoyed it (and got new ideas/inspiration) both times, so well done!

I like the music, the pacing, the mix of graphics, and the enthusiasm that really shines through.

I think the demonstration with a real project is a very useful approach. This really is a fabulous course.
