|FROM WILMA: Container gardening is both very old as well as fairly new. Plants growing in earthen containers are depicted in the art of ancient cultures. During the Middle Ages large wooden and terra cotta containers of citrus were grown outside in summer and inside in winter. Immigrants brought potted medicinal, edible, and favorite flowering plants as they moved to America. In “Granma’s” day, her favorites were planted in worn-out pots and pans, clay pots, tin cans, concrete, and wooden containers.|
Modern container gardening became easier as lightweight containers and commercial potting soils were developed in the mid-20th century. Today there are many choices of containers including colorful glazed pottery. These along with a wide array of plants enhance container gardening.
Join us this Saturday for our Container Gardening Workshop with Mardi Letson!
