IT'S SPRING! We're so happy to invite Carmen back to give us another Warehouse Talk about "CONTAINER GARDENING FOR SMALL SPACE GROWING"!
Not everyone has a personal plot of land on which to grow their vegetables. In fact, growing in containers, whether that's on your balcony, patio or outside your front door, is rapidly gaining popularity as a way for urbanites to grow healthy food that's literally within reach! In order to successfully garden in containers, however, it's important to understand how to manage your soil and planting strategies to guarantee a good yield. In this talk we will explore various container options, which soil mixtures work (and which don't), various watering strategies that work well for container gardening and how to keep your plants happy and healthy!
As always, all of our Warehouse Talks are FREE!
Space is limited so please !
We hope to see you soon!
Time: 7:00pm to 8:30pm, April 11th, 2019
Location: The Wu & McHugh Warehouse - Unit 3 9727 Horton Rd SW Calgary AB
