Summer Garden Series

Session #2

Wednesday, June 30, at 6:30pm

Topic: Creative Container Gardening

Whether you are new to gardening, an experienced pro or have a limited amount of garden space – you are invited to reimagine what you can do in a container. While flowers are the most obvious pot filler, there are many other things you can use. We will talk about mixing things up by adding veggies, succulents, and other creative combinations. Not sure where to even start? We’ll discuss what can be a container, and everything that goes inside from potting soil to plastic milk jugs.
