Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Plants

Ed Gregan, Carlton Plants, LLC

DESCRIPTION:  Ed Gregan illustrates how to use common and somewhat uncommon woody landscape plants in uncommon ways using photos and handouts. Most designers become somewhat stagnant using the same old plants. Most nurseries grow those same old plants in common forms. He’ll help landscape designers create more exciting landscapes for their clients and the nurseries to grow plants in different ways to entice more business.
