Container gardening is a fun, flexible and easy way to get your hands dirty. This presentation will teach you how to make the most of your particular environment, choose the right container and select the best plant. It will cover the best soils, fertilizers and organic pest control. While edible plants will be the focus, information will include specific information for succulents, flowers and small trees. At the end, attendees will learn that they can grow almost anything in a pot.
