Nov. 20, 2021 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Berkshire Botanical Garden

Winter approaches but this doesn’t mean your window boxes or containers need to spend the next four months filled with the skeletons of long-dead plants. Instead, you can compost those spent annuals and fill the void with a variety of options from classic to contemporary. Deborah Trickett, whose business The Captured Garden is all about keeping container gardens appealing in all seasons, will share creative ideas to carry you through the holidays to spring.

Deborah works with clients throughout New England who want their homes to be beautiful, not typical. By combining unusual plant material and creative design ideas she creates gardens and containers that are truly one of a kind. Deborah Trickett is a Massachusetts Certified Horticulturist and Landscape Professional.  She is a frequent lecturer on creative container gardening, speaking at regional Flower Shows.
