Creating Outdoor Rooms with Pots – 2 Part Series

Creating Outdoor Rooms with Pots — 2 Part Series

Saturday February 6 and 20, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Container gardens can provide much more than a colorful garden to view from in and out of your home.  In this unique class, Marylee Pangman, our Desert Potted Garden Expert, will cover how to use pots to divide patios into separate spaces, create screening for unsightly objects or neighbors’ eyes and create a hideaway to relax in. She will also discuss the types of plants that are conducive to creating these spaces while thriving in our challenging desert climate. There will be plenty of time to ask questions in this two-session, 60-minute virtual program.

Marylee’s book, “Getting Potted in the Desert,” is available for purchase in the TBG Gift Shop or can be shipped to your home by calling Christine at 520-326-9686.

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.
