Container garden lecture in DeFuniak Springs May 13

April 30, 2015

containergardenThe Walton County Master Gardeners continue the lecture series: “How Does Your Garden Grow?” for the month of May. The top ten (and more) plants for successful container gardening will be the topic.

Nothing brings instant color and interest to a garden like containers can.  Our local climate allows for year round container gardening. Master Gardener, Andrea Schnapp, will discuss successful (and not) annuals, perennials and shrub containers through a PowerPoint presentation. She will also cover designing, locating, maintaining your containers and even making your own potting mix.

The program will be offered on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 from 2 – 3:30 p.m. at the Walton County Extension Office, 732 N 9th Street in DeFuniak Springs, next to the Fairgrounds.
These events, structured for the local home gardeners, are free and open to the public.

However, seating is limited, and reservations must be made by the Monday before the event by calling Cheryl at 850-892-8172.  Master Gardeners will be on hand to take gardening questions.  Soil testing and instructions will be available. This is a service of the University of Florida/IFAS Extension and Walton County.
