Gorgeous Containers:  the Principles of Design  

Join Sky for an intro to the principles of container design.  It all starts with choosing a great container… then balancing heights, foliage textures, and shapes; matching and contrasting colors; choosing plants that are right for your sun exposure… in short, designing a miniature garden!  We’ll also go over how to design your own great hanging basket.

Growing Fruit, Vegetables, and Herbs in Containers         Emily Wilkins

Emily returns to focus specifically on the challenges of growing food in containers.  The size and shape of your containers will determine what you can grow, and Sky carries everything from easy-on-the back raised vegetable bins and Earth Boxes, to watering troughs and whiskey barrels, to decorative pots and hanging baskets just the right size for a single tomato or herb plant.  Emily will help you determine how to maximize production in the containers you’re planning to use, and go over the special needs for water, fertilizer, etc. for edibles growing in the restricted space of a container.
