Explore the art of container gardening on a smaller scale. While large pots are usually recommended for desert heat, not everyone can manage them. Learn how to make the most of ability and limited space ensuring your garden thrives. Whether you’re a beginner seeking a manageable approach or an experienced gardener looking for innovative solutions, this class is your key to unlocking secrets to breathing life into your desert oasis using smaller pots, as Marylee shares her expertise in navigating these unique considerations of gardening small.
Marylee Pangman founded The Contained Gardener in 1998 as a niche business in the desert community of Tucson, Arizona.
Since then, Marylee has been compelled to share all that she has learned about container gardening over 20 years of blistering summers and record breaking winters. Marylee sees container gardening as a way to have an oasis garden while conserving water as the demands of pots are far less than heavily planted areas and beds. You can find Marylee’s book, “Getting Potted in the Desert” at the Garden’s Gift Shop. This excellent resource includes a month-by-month planning guide, ideas for creating and caring for potted gardens, advice on container selection, and much more. https://thepotteddesert.com
