Learn how to master the art of container gardening and plant up your patio pots. Each year, we highlight special educational information about the “themed” plants and we will go over the hot trends benefiting our society in the plant word for 2017. Select the plants you wish to use from a stock available for purchase at the workshop. Bring your own pot(s) or purchase them at workshop.

2017 Featured Plants:

Our featured planned plants are indoor gardening style – which are beautiful outdoors in season and taken indoors for the fall and winter – double bonus as this means your containers will be showy 365 days of the year. This year’s workshop will entail large or small to medium sized pots. Stay tuned as we update everything in 2017. Other plant types will be available as well, most likely succulents this year!


Our workshops are designed for convenience, learning and fun. At this workshop, we have organic compost, soil media, fertilizer, and top dressing materials for additional purchase. Provided are many extra’s as you will see when you attend if a new attendee.
