With Mardi Dover

Garden designer, Mardi Dover, will demonstrate how to put together a beautiful container garden to celebrate the season! Mardi will share tips for choosing containers, plus selecting, planting, and caring for cool season plants. Then she will plant up a couple of containers right in front of your eyes!  Questions will be welcomed, and the completed containers will be for sale after the workshop.
