Frank Hyman, Cottage Garden Landscaping

Whether indoors or out, gardening in containers opens up a lot of possibilities: edible leaves, fragrant flowers, carnivorous plants, dwarf citrus trees, and more. Learn about growing herbs and perennial vegetables in pots, finding free fertilizers, upcycling containers, making homemade potting media, using castoff materials like coffee chaff as timesaving mulches, and more. The class offers a slide show, a one-page handout, plenty of Q&A time. Frank will share container tricks and houseplant hacks—like wine cork mulches, burlap basket liners and flying air plant mobiles just to name a few—that cut his watering time by more than half and cut his costs to the bone while making the garden beautiful.
