PRESCOTT, AZ, January 8, 2019 The turn to a new year starts an entirely new series of free garden classes each season.  This year is no exception.  Since the garden centers start Watters has offered free garden classes every Saturday at 9:30 in the morning.

A small business must be famous for something to open our doors for the past 57 years.  “Our philosophy from the very beginning is be known as the local garden expert, then teach others how to be the same.” originally said Harold Watters, found of the company.

“As the second-generation owner of the garden center we don’t want to change what has made us famous all these years,” says Lisa Watters-Lain.  “We have some inspiring classes lined up for 2019.”

January 19  Happy, Healthy Houseplants – Houseplants brighten your home and lives, and even clean the air you breathe, but not all are created equal when growing in an arid climate like ours. You’ll have a list of the top houseplants best grown indoors and how to care for them after this class.
