Our first Container Garden Workshop of the year is this Saturday and Sunday, April 25-26. The workshop starts at 10 and is ongoing throughout the day till 4. Come in anytime between those hours. After you have shopped for your plants, flowers, and containers pick your spot in our designated workshop area and let the fun begin!
It’s a hands-on experience, so be sure to bring your garden gloves. If you forget them, don’t worry, we have a wide variety of reasonably priced gardening gloves to choose from. Our knowledgeable and friendly associates will be happy to assist you while you do the planting and will help with any and all plant or design questions.
We do ask that if you are bringing in containers from home, please EMPTY all soil from them before bringing them to our greenhouse. To participate in our container workshops and receive FREE POTTING SOIL AND ASSISTANCE, a minimum purchase of $10.00 is required and you must use plants purchased at America's Best Flowers.
If you are bringing in large containers please bring in packing peanuts, chunks of Styrofoam or Styrofoam egg cartons to help fill the bottom of your container. In addition to providing great drainage, it makes the container a whole lot lighter for you to transport back home and also, easier to rearrange in your garden if you want to change your outside decor.
Do you know?
To have a successful container garden there is some information that you’ll need to know beforehand. Such as, where are your containers going to be located; in the sun, in the shade or a little of both? Different plants and flowers have different needs. Do you want to just water them and watch them grow or are you okay with periodically removing the dead blooms from the flowers? It is this kind of information that will allow us to help you choose the right plants and flowers for your situation. Our container garden designers will be here to answer any and all of your questions.
