Get to know the plants that thrive in containers, how to care for them and keep them looking fabulous. During the three sessions of this course you will acquire a knowledge of the skills required for beautiful and successful container gardens. We will cover the full scope of gardening in pots - from container, plant and soil selection to grooming and maintaining your collection to techniques for overwintering. By the last session you will be ready to design, install and care for your own and your clients’ potted gardens.
