It’s never too cold for containers! With the winter holidays approaching, now is the time to get creative with cold-hardy plants and greens outside and bulbs inside! Holiday Container Gardens are a wonderful way to add color, texture, and interest to your entryway or patio. Bulbs, such as paperwhites and amaryllis, let you enjoy the fragrance and colors of spring when it is still months away! They look spectacular on tables and mantels! In this hands-on class, you will create a festive container garden. You will learn about forcing bulbs inside, cold hardy plants , container design tips, how to work with winter greens, and more! Also, tips for protecting your plants and pots and preparing them for Ohio’s winter weather will be covered. All plants, greens, decorations, and soil will be provided. Please bring with you to class a pair of gardening gloves and an empty plastic pot or liner, around 14 inches which will be placed into your decorative container at home.
