The succulent wreaths course is part of Extension’s Four Seasons Gardening winter webinar series. Horticulture Educator Bruce Black will answer questions and cover the basics of these extremely popular plants, succulent biology and how to build and care for a gorgeous, living wreath.

The webinar is free and will be 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29.
