Contain Your Garden

Main Library

small plantMaster Gardener and Interior Designer Denise Maurer will be presenting a workshop entitled Contain Your Garden prior to Nina’s Hidden Garden Tour.

You can get maxi gardening results in mini spaces. That’s the beauty of growing your favorite perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs or even trees in a container. And, since your garden is smaller, it minimizes the tending time. During the class you’ll learn how to select the right container, the plants that will work best for you and all the “nitty-grittiest” to keep your garden happy and healthy.
