The P+V Planting Design Boot Camp


In Planting Design Boot Camp You will Learn to:

  • Identify what a plant needs just by looking at it - even if you don't know what it is.


  • The basics of the secret language of plants (Botanical Latin) and how to use it to your advantage.


  • Read the characteristics of your land and understand what will work and what won't.


  • Discover and define your own planting design style.


  • Analyze and pick perfect plants for you and your specific conditions.


  • Successfully pair plants to achieve your aesthetic as well as a healthy thriving garden.


  • Draw up a scaled plan of your planting areas so you know exactly what you need, where it will go and how many plants to buy.


  • Navigate the nursery. Purchase plants and shop like a pro.


  • Utilize the same design principles used by the pros.


  • Install your plants so they thrive and achieve your vision.


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email welcoming you to the course with your login, and password for the course site.
There is a 7-day money back guarantee.  If you want to cancel your purchase of the course for any reason, you are free to do that with a full refund up until 7 days after you purchase.  No refunds will be given after 7 days.

What People Are Saying:

Without the course I'd have a garden with way too many plants and in a hodge-podge system at that.


I learned so much about plants and how to think about garden spaces. These concepts seem so obvious to me now that I have taken the course, but I never thought about them like that before (if that makes sense!).  


Without Planting Design Boot Camp I would probably still be where I am every year: planting without purpose and knowing that I would have to start over again the next year. It's a rather depressing cycle!
