"Contained Exuberance" is a hands-on workshop to help you design and plant your containers/pots for the season. Learn how to select pots (terracotta, earthenware, concrete, cast iron, polyethylene, and a host of lightweight resin and fiber pots) that fit your lifestyle and marry a wide range of plants to your containers. 

We'll cover:

  • design
  • turning other vessels into pots
  • what makes a good potting soil?
  • feeding, watering and other care
  • midseason tuneups for long-lasting impact
  • beyond "annuals" -- everything goes!
  • scavenging in the garden for container subjects
  • staging of pot groupings

Margaret and Bob co-curated the 1st container display at Berkshire Botanical Garden in 2009 and have showcased their container plantings at Olana; throughout the Hudson, NY, business districts, and at Loomis Creek Nursery.
