Growing In Containers
8/19/2023, Saturday, 9:30-11:30am
Zoom Live Class

The popularity of growing fruits & veggies in containers is expanding by leaps and bounds. Container gardening has so many advantages! It's easier to manage the soil, control weeds, and it's easier on the back and knees. You don't even have to have a garden to grow food! This class will cover a variety of container sizes and style options. You will learn about the right soils and fertilizers to use and how to manage watering and yearly maintenance. We will cover the types of crops you can grow in containers, succession planting, crop rotation, and freeze protection.
