Box of Greens comes in 2 boxes with 8-9 varieties of greens! Freshly packed and picked up.

Kelley’s wreath was the first one I created in 2022 season. It got over 40 likes on my Facebook business page. Everyone loved it and it kicked off my creations from there!

Victoria requested burgundy for the ribbon choice and I used this white ribbon with the Jingle words in burgundy and with the cones, it worked well. So glad she was pleased!

When I see the beautiful doors of my customers, I think I need to update my own door! Their doors are so pretty, like Elise’s red doors which are side-by-side doubles, so I made her twin wreaths with silver bow, silver cones, and touches of silver ting sticks.

  • Received today in perfect order!! True Cathy T – Soup to nuts and then some! The instructions that you added are so, so helpful and INFORMATIVE!! You did all the hard stuff for me at least and just ONE of the many things that I admire you and your work for. May sound corny, but for me it’s the truth. Thank you.

  • I just picked up my custom succulent topped pumpkins from Cathy Testa and I couldn’t be happier! I ordered a large fall theme one for my Thanksgiving table and a smaller Halloween theme one for my Halloween table! They are absolutely gorgeous! If you’re looking, please contact her. She was so enjoyable to work with. Support local small business. And she will be taking Holiday orders of wreaths and kissing balls soon. Go check her out. (TMP on Facebook post, 2020).

  • This is a long time coming. I just have to say I purchased some beautiful plants/gifts from Cathy T for the Christmas Holidays. All I can say is WOW!!! The plants (as always) were just beautiful and her creativeness and uniqueness knows no boundaries! The containers were adorable and beautiful. I had such a hard time parting with them. Looking forward to what she has up her sleeve as we approach spring. Thanks Cathy T for always having the “Best of the Best.” Everyone loved them! (DT, Jan 2019, FB comment).
  • I have purchased a kissing ball from here for the last few years and they are gorgeous!! Beautiful mixed greens with my special order funky bow.

  • Thanks for the awesome workshop! Great meeting everyone and getting my “craft on”. (CF 2017)
  • For several years, I have had Cathy at Container Crazy Ct for my potted plants and advice, especially this year for 2 very old plants that needed refurbishment. Yes they were plants that I had potted. LOL! No green thumb here. LOL! I gave them to Dr. Cathy and they are now repotted and trimmed and fertilized and thriving. I could not ask for a better person, who has greater knowledge of what needs to be done, and done right. You want perfection ? Call on Cathy of Container Crazy Ct. Thanks again Cathy for another great year of service. (VJ, July 2017)

Starting this week Cathy will be selling custom wreaths with mixed greens. Enjoyed making my kissing ball and can’t wait to sign up for other classes being offered in 2017 and will definitely be coming back for her 8th annual workshop!
  • Best workshop ever sign up you won’t regret it. She also has many year round workshops. Like containers, succulents etc… check her out..

  • What a wonderful class and hands on experience with Cathy Testa today at ContainerCrazyCT! Cathy is a great teacher and shares her wealth of knowledge and then let’s us play and build a beautiful large planter. So much work goes into getting ready for these classes and it is so worthwhile! thanks Cathy! Can’t wait for my creation to grow!!
  • Strong Family Farm LOVES having Cathy T do a container gardening workshop at the farm every year. Cathy is so informative and knowledgeable about plants, design and growing. She is amazing and definitely worth your time to attend any workshop she has!
  • Not being a very crafty person, it is empowering to feel confident to make a creation at Cathy’s Kissing ball class. She has everything available and is there to help for a no-fail experience. And equally enjoyable is the festive ambiance she creates for us at her home – a special day in every way!
  • I love going to the Kissing Ball class every year! Gets you in the Christmas spirit and Cathy always has a way to pull the creative soul out of you!
  • My first time ever doing this type of class. Made a kissing ball. Was unsure what to expect. Great gathering of people, plenty of room to make your kissing ball, wreath or whatever. I was kinda nervous on making something but Cathy gives great instruction for us “newbies”, offers any assistance as well as do other members of the group, and I was really impressed with the different greens she had for us to use. It was so enjoyable and relaxing to make this creation and best of all I gave the kissing ball to my mother in law as a gift for Xmas and she just LOVED it!
  • Went to my 2nd Kissing Ball Class this year. Once again had a blast and made a beautiful Kissing Ball to hang!! Cathy is the best teacher in the world. I am not very crafty but always feel like my pieces are beautiful be it a kissing ball or container made in the spring. Thank you Cathy for showing me that I CAN do it!! Can’t wait for the next class……
  • Cathy’s kissing ball class has become one of my favorite holiday traditions. Excellent teacher, ambiance, food, friends, a little wine to top it off! Her selection of greens is amazing, I could never create anything like it at home, plus my house stays clean! I’m always excited to see the way her house is decorated year after year, what an imagination this girl has! See you next year Cathy!
  • I’ve attended several of Cathy’s workshops. Great way for a novice like me to learn a new craft (sea glass jewelry, wreath making, etc.) in a fun environment. Cathy’s enthusiasm is infectious! I highly recommend her.
  • I attended my first workshop this past Saturday and learned a great deal about planting container gardens. Cathy is so knowledgable and conducted the workshop in such a professional manner while making it fun as well. This is something you will learn and use over and over in your future gardening/plantings. Thank you Cathy!
  • I was very happy to have attended my first class at Cathy’s today. It was the Hypertufa Class. My experience was wonderful to say the least. It was a rainy day, but she made the event just perfect. We were all greeted with her bubbly personality and a cup of fresh brewed Pumpkin Spice coffee. She had a beautiful table of treats which included cheese/crackers, home made pumpkin cake, fresh fruits and other goodies.
  • Cathy is very knowledgeable in all aspects of plants and design; from succulents in the spring, tropicals in the summer to greens in the winter! You have any questions about plants or any type of container design she’s there to teach and help! I have personally known Cathy for over 35 years as a friend in and out of school, she was my art class buddy, and I’m proud to say she’s has been a part of my family for years! I couldn’t be more proud of her and to see her succeeded in her dreams !! Luv U Cath!!
