Gardening - Making the Most of Containers


Are you keen to brighten up your house, patio or balcony area? By using containers such as hanging baskets and planters you can create a riot of colour and even grow your own edible plants.

What will we cover?

Starting with your own space, we will look at all the options for growing plants, fruits, vegetables and herbs in containers. We will look at raised beds, pots and hanging baskets; compost and ways to conserve water. You can create a refreshing new look for your outdoor space with innovative containers that are limited only by your imagination!
