Container gardening is an effective way to provide a pop of color to the area around your front door or your patio. It's also a great way to add height to an otherwise low growing flower bed. I love seeing a bright colored container filled with a combination of trailing plants and annuals of different colors and textures to add interest and height to a garden.
Horticulturist, Patrick Dickinson, with Texas A&M AgriLife Research, will hold a Container Gardening Workshop, in the Grand Hall of the Texas Discovery Gardens, at Fair Park, on May 10. This is a great opportunity to learn how to prepare your pots and containers for planting. Many types of potting soil mixes are available at our local nurseries. Materials are also available to blend your own potting mix. In addition to soil preparation, Dickinson will talk about plants suitable for containers including colorful foliage plants, perennials and annuals and what plants wok well with each other.
Did you know that the 7.5 acres that make up the Texas Discovery Gardens are 100% organically maintained? Allow time to explore this wonderful Dallas area gardening resource!
