Interested in attracting birds, butterflies and beneficial insects to your garden but short on space or time? In this creative and ecologically-minded demonstration, you will learn techniques for designing a native plant container garden suited to your specific micro-climate. You’ll get lots of easy, take-home tips and helpful tools to assemble a healthy habitat using low maintenance native plants for sun or shade.
Color, form, texture and placement are a few of the topics covered in this four season approach to creating unique focal points in your landscape that are environmentally friendly too. Marcia’s container planting demonstration will inspire you to express your own personal garden style.
