Container Gardening: From Asters to Zucchini

For many urban gardeners, small spaces are a fact of life. In this seminar we’ll focus on how to succeed with food crops and ornamentals that live in confined spaces. We will cover how plants respond to containers, the most suitable soils to use, special amendments and irrigation needs, and how to choose the best varieties for annuals and perennials. This is not a design course; it is focused on long term perennial plant health and nutritious food harvests.
