Container Gardening - Dramatic, Changeable and Forever Moveable

Seeds, vegetables, and plant pots

If you live in a place where you don’t have any regular garden beds, such as an apartment or condo, containers are the way to go to still enjoy the benefits of gardening while saving you time and energy and requiring little space.  Containers of plants are like miniature gardens that can be placed anywhere to add instant charm, a focal point or supply vegetables and herbs.  Master Gardeners Catherine Disley and Rob Stuart will cover the basics of container gardening - the type of soil best for the types of plants you want to grow, when and how often to water, and the importance of mulching, deadheading and winter storage. Discover what is required to get optimum growth and what plant combinations do well in sun, shade or some of each.

We’ll also explain how to craft a DIY hewn stone-look planter where you can grow many alpine type plants all in a small container!
