Flower Arrangements


    Details for the Fall 2023 Course will be available in August 

    Every fall for over 60 years AGC has hosted the Nelly Hough Memorial

   Gardening Course, which is named in memory of one of Charlottesville’s most

   renowned and beloved garden designers. In 1940, Mrs. Hough began an annual

   gardening course that started many of our area’s finest gardeners on their way. The

   course draws its inspiration from Mrs. Hough’s work and is designed for participants

 of all levels of gardening experience who wish to gain and to share insights into the

   rewards and challenges of gardening.  Topics include trees, shrubs, and roses, annual

and perennial flowers that flourish in our area as well as landscape design, pest

management and horticulture. The course runs for five consecutive weeks; each program

is held at a different home or farm in the Charlottesville area. A fee is charged

for the course and all proceeds benefit our Community Projects Fund.
