Budget Container Gardening

May 18, 2019 10:00 am - 12:00 pm



If you're eager to fill your patio, balcony or yard with containers to grow some luscious and healthy veggies, but you shudder at the thought of paying full-price for fancy pots and planter boxes, come to this workshop for ideas on how and where to source inexpensive containers that are well-suited for growing vegetables.  We'll talk about all the basics of container gardening (including potting mix and fertilizer options) and how to choose the right plant for the right container.  A special focus will be paid to varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants and squash that will do well in the right container.  This is a hands-on working lab, meaning students will measure and add fertilizer to containers and plant seedlings;  please come dressed for working in the garden.
