Event Details

Growing plants in containers is for everyone! This free class will cover how to pair the right pot with the right plants and where to place it for optimal growth and vigor.

Home gardeners with small spaces, balconies or large yards can enjoy growing plants in a variety of vessels. UC Master Gardeners Sue Procter and Anastatia Foster will explore container types and sizes, potting soils and amendments, light and water requirements, pruning and integrated pest management techniques to support a thriving container garden. Whether you are growing food or ornamental plants, singular specimens, mass plantings or trees, this class will cover the keys to keep your potted plants flourishing.

This class will explore plant size, color and texture combinations within a container planting. Have you ever found a pot you would love to plant but could not because there was no drainage hole? Join us for a hole drilling demo to see how easily a drainage hole can be added to almost any pot.

Please arrive 15 min early to register or sign in. Instruction is free but Quail Hollow collects $3.00 for use of the facilities.
