Register Here for Patio Farming:

Growing Great Edible Gardens in Containers

This class will be held during the Desert Song 10th Annual Community Art Festival.

Gardening in the Valley certainly has its challenges, from our alkaline mineral soil, to lack of adequate space, and, of course, a shortage of water and abundance of heat. Container gardens are a wonderful way to overcome these issues in order to grow beautiful ornamentals and productive edibles in our urban environment. Fun and easy for aspiring and seasoned gardeners alike, container gardens offer flexibility and manageability that in-ground gardens lack. In fact, the endless possibilities can make container gardening addictive.

Topics to be covered will include the following:

Choosing the Best Containers for Your Plants

Potting Mix Recipes for Flowers, Vegetables, Hanging Baskets, Bulbs and Succulents

How to Choose a Healthy Plant at the Nursery

Successful Container Preparation and Transplanting

How to Properly Water, Feed and Care For Container Plants

Installing an (Optional) Automatic Watering System

Fun and Creative Containers and Arrangements
