Saturday March 16 is the second East Texas Garden Lecture Series workshop at the Tyler Rose Garden Center, featuring “Creating Creative Container Gardens”. Gone are the days of boring, one-plant pots! Come be inspired watching 3 nurserymen – Sharon Smith of Blue Moon Gardens, James Wilhite of Wilhite Landscape & Lawn, and Laurie Breedlove of Breedlove Landscape Nursery, demonstrate how to plant beautiful and interesting container gardens.

During this fast-paced program, you’ll not only learn the basics of container gardens – soils, containers and plants, but your creativity will be stimulated for making arrangements using stylish containers consisting of combinations of evergreens, grasses, and perennial arrangements; color flower and foliage arrangements; and using odd and/or structural items in arrangements. Each person will present an initial arrangement solo, then all will create a second container garden, with Mary Wilhite of Blue Moon Gardens providing color commentary. The program begins at 9:00 a.m., with registration beginning at 8:30. Registration is $15 at the door. Some containers will given as door prizes.
