More people are growing plants in containers than ever before! Successful container gardening requires a thorough knowledge of the science of plant growth, container/media dynamics, and container gardening design principles. This eight-week class dives into all things containers.

During this course, you will learn the science of plant growth in containers and explore creating combo planters. Bryce shares his tips for landscaping with containers (potscaping) and growing woody plants in containers. The class even covers all things houseplants, from environment to culture and introduces you to the art and science of bonsai. It’s a full course from outdoors to indoors and packed full of plants!
