Containers with plants contribute additional color, form, texture, and variety to our landscape. With seasonal changes, they can also be used throughout the year. This class will cover types of plants to consider, choosing containers, soil requirements, selecting and arranging plants, and regular care. Attendees who come to class with a container and plants will have the opportunity to create their own container garden. Potting soil will be provided. Let us know if you plan to do this when you register for the class.
