A small group of members attended the Container Gardening workshop held on a very wet Saturday morning. It certainly wasn’t a day to be outside gardening but by the end of the session the participants left with a boot load of plants and seeds planted in containers.

Dave Adams demonstrated how to plant seeds and plants into containers – these ranged from buckets and takeaway containers to foam coffee cups. He also gave advice about potting mix and how to care for your seeds and plants once they start growing.  An added bonus was Annette Hill showing participants how to grow micro greens.

The final Interactive Horticulture Workshop is on Saturday 10 October and covers hypertufa and sphagnum moss. See the events tab on our website. If you have any suggestions for the 2016 series please email: office@chsgardens.co.nz
