Are your summer container arrangements looking a little the worse for wear after our summer heat and drought? We are here to help! Bring your own garden gloves, hand tools and a 10”- 12” container or choose one of a few that will be offered at the workshop. Potting soil and plants will be provided. Our presenter will guide you through the steps of refreshing your container garden. The results should be a welcome nod to our coming cool, fall weather.
