Free Presentation – Container Gardening Design Tips – Sat, 3/11/17 in S. Windsor

Container Crazy CT is offering a free one-hour presentation on “6 Design Tips for Container Gardens” from 10:00 am to 11:00 am on Saturday, March 11th, 2017 at BOOK CLUB Bookstore and More, 869 Sullivan Avenue, South Windsor, CT.

Plant and Design Tips

This is a slide presentation where I go over tips to help you learn what to look for in plants to design beautiful large container gardens and patio pots. Often, people get confused on how to structure the design or which plants to use and why in their patio pots or containers. If you want to learn how I’ve created my big and beautiful pots – this talk is for you.


Gardening Trends

I will also go over the current 2017 Gardening Trends – they impact what is available today for plants and gardening. Whether you get into trends or not, you will find this part of the talk interesting. Learn about the new “color of the year” or what the Millenniums are focused on for gardening. Hear about all the wonderful wellness and benefits of healthy gardening happening in the trending world. It’s all good these days.

How to Register

Walk-in’s are welcome, but registrations are appreciated for head-count to ensure we have enough seats. You may register via the BOOK CLUB’s Facebook page under EVENTS. Again, this is a free talk which will be offered to kick off your spring season coming up soon.

BOOK CLUB Just Opened!

The bookstore recently relocated from Broad Brook to South Windsor. They offer a wonderful selection of new and used books you will probably want to browse before or after the presentation. Don’t forget to check out their schedule of “author appearances” as well.

Tuesdays and Thursdays

Also, I will be at this location every Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to 5 pm starting today – I’m so excited to have a place to meet my clients for special orders and offer workshops and talks here. Additionally, there are several workshops and more talks being scheduled at this location. Stay tuned.

Workshop Prototypes

At the store, you will find prototypes of Container Crazy CT workshop creations coming up this season. Look for the prototype of the upcoming workshop in two weeks: “Botanical Living Wall Art”. See the prototypes, grab flyers of all 2017 workshops, and pick up a plant, as I will have plants available at this shop routinely, along with gardening supplies.

United Bank Plaza

The BOOK CLUB is located off Sullivan Avenue in the United Bank plaza. As you enter, drive in and look to the left – you will see the store there. There is plenty of parking, a local restaurant for lunch after, and many other local shops, fitness center, and a pet store, just to name a few. There is also a Dunkin Donuts and Italian restaurant next door.

Conveniently Located

The location of this store is convenient, between East Windsor and Manchester. A great stop by if you are heading to Manchester for shopping at Evergreen Walk, or if going towards East Windsor or from East Windsor. It is only six miles away from my home town of Broad Brook. Travel up Rt. 5 (south), take a left on Sullivan Avenue, and you will see the United Bank plaza on your right a few miles down the road.

Looking forward to seeing you,
