The top question Marylee is asked about desert container gardening is how to keep your plants alive. 95% of plant failure is due to inappropriate watering. Learn how to water your container gardens through the summer. Marylee will cover what and when to water and how to water by hand. She will also cover the basics in thinking about automating your system with a pot dedicated irrigation line.

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.
