Container Gardening

Community Room Combined
Thursday, Apr 27, 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Container gardening has become a hot topic in recent years as more of us are living in condos and apartments and would like to garden. Also, as we age, gardening with containers allows us to garden with less bending and kneeling. To be a successful container gardener, you need to know not only about the plants that grow in containers but also how growing in containers affect plants. A certified Master Gardener Volunteer from Dane County UW-Extension will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of different container types, container soils and their characteristics, watering and fertilizing schedules, plants that are well suited for containers and container design. Don't forget to pick up seeds from Madison Public Library's Seed Library to use after the program!

Space is limited for this event; registration is required. Please use the sign up link below or call (608) 246-4547 to register. Registration opens on April 13 at 10 a.m., two weeks prior to program date.

This program is supported by the Friends of Lakeview Library.
