Container gardening

A great program idea for spring…invite a master gardener in to talk about container gardening and flower beds.

Debbie Landauer used local gardener Jane Sorenson of River Berry Farm. Debbie suggests offering participants the option of paying for flowers or having the library pick up the tab. Ideally, each participant goes home with a container of flowers they created. Container gardening is on the rise for vegetables too. Think herbs, tomatoes, or even potatoes. Many Vermonters have participated in UVM’s Master Gardener series, one resource for local speakers.
