When space, time, or physical limitations put a traditional garden out of reach, there’s still a way to enjoy the simple pleasures of gardening: container gardening. Why containers? They are economical, flexible, portable, and allow artistic expression. Many plants that are grown in a garden can flourish in a container.

Penn State Extension Master Gardener Janice Budd will present “Container Gardening”. Janice will cover the foundations of container gardening from choosing the right container and soil mix to the versatility and creativity container gardening offers.
