ONEIDA CO., N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) of Oneida County is inviting the public to another Zoom-in garden class with CCE Master Gardener Volunteer Rosanne Loparco, Wednesday, June 24, 2020, 7:00-8:00pm. Whether in a small space, on a balcony, or large landscape, containers let you garden anywhere, even where there isn't any soil. Rosanne will teach you how to grow plants in containers. The class will encompass everything from the basics of what plants need for healthy growth to designing an attractive container.
Almost anything can be grown in a container, annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, even vines and small trees. Class zoom-ins will also find out how just about anything that can hold soil can be a container. Find ways to repurpose items around your home into attractive and useful garden displays. Ideas for container designs will also be provided. Participants will discover the limitless plant possibilities and an equally amazing variety of containers.
