All About Containers Saturday: All Three Sections


No land? No problem! Containers can bring added color, form, and texture to any space-deck, rooftop, terrace, front porch, or window sill. With the right combination of plants, containers provide visual impact, create a small garden, and add pleasure to your living area. Sun or shade, ornamental or edible, find out what kind of container garden is right for you. Please bring lunch.
