Container Planting Workshop

There are still spots left for the Container Planting Workshop held on May 18th from 9 am until 11 am. Facilitated by Becky Nickel and me (Mark Dwyer), this workshop will examine the best ways to prepare, plant and maintain your own container arrangement for any garden situation. Check out this workshop on our website at Participant fees include a faux terra cotta container (plastic) as seen above with Marianne. Otherwise, they can bring their own, similiar-sized container down to the gardens (and save $10 off the workshop fee). Participants will also have the ability to pick plants from the RBG yard which will be stocked with many of our gardens plants. Call me at (608) 754-1779 with any questions.

P.S. Don't forget Kathleen Miller's presentation this Thursday night at 7 pm on the New Landscape & Garden at the Parker Education Center
