Container Gardens (incl soil & plants - bring your own container)   

Container gardening is very popular today, since so many of us have small landscapes or live in condos. Containers are a perfect solution for those looking to bring color and interest and/or fresh herbs to a home with limited gardening space. The variety of lovely and unique containers, as well as the vast color palette of plants appropriate for containers, makes this type of gardening exciting and fun. The instructor demonstrates ways to make your containers sparkle throughout the year. Discover the secrets to a successfully blooming mini garden. Bring your own container (one you can carry when full) and design your own small garden in class. Plants (including both veggies & decorative plants) are provided by the instructor and are included in your class fee. CLASS FEE IS NONREFUNDABLE.
