Container Gardening – Flowers and Foliage

Plants can be enjoyed anywhere and to give them the best possible environment we must learn what each plant needs. We will learn various plant requirements that are a must for success.

Additional Information

Space does not have to limit your gardening. You can grow vegetables, herbs, flowers and foliage all in containers. To give our plants the best possible environment, first we must learn what each plant needs. Maintaining these containers means knowing the requirements for light, water, sun, and fertilizer for each plant. Containers come in an endless amount of sizes, colors, and shapes that can be used, so you are sure to find something that will work for you!

Discussion will include some helpful tips for success.

Availability: Most evenings, weekends (excluding mid-March thru June.) Prefer to travel maximum of 30 minutes one-way from my home in Lee's Summit.

During the spring, you can find her working at a local garden center, and in the past, working at an apple orchard in the fall. Monday through Friday, she enjoys being “daycare” for her grandson.
