Garden Class “The Fragrant Garden” (Fort Myers, FL)

This class is designed to introduce a large variety of plants that will enhance your gardens with olfactory bouquets – all season long. Whether your goal is to create an enchanting evening garden, attract new pollinators, or fill the day with sweet whiffs, this program is designed for you! At the end of the in-class presentation, we will have some fun with aromatherapy by introducing participants to the meaning, purpose and value of a host of amazing fragrances – often found in many of the rare tropical flowers here at Edison Ford. Participants will be able to prepare their own “signature” room or linen scent while in class.
