All About Containers Saturday
No land? No problem! Containers can bring added color, form, and texture to any space—deck, rooftop, terrace, front porch, or window sill. With the right combination of plants, containers provide visual impact, create a small garden, and add pleasure to your living area. Sun or shade, ornamental or edible, find out what kind of container garden is right for you. Please bring lunch.
10 am–12 pm
