Succulents in Pots

May 22 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

Zoom Online class participants will receive a Zoom link for the class two hours before the class begins.

$36 Non-Member / $29 Member

Any time is the perfect time to add Succulents to your garden. Let’s plant them in pots! Like having your cake and eating it too, learn to create a trio of pots with water-wise succulents with a touch of color with flowers. Marylee, our Desert Potted Garden Expert, will share many of her favorite succulents (and cactus) for pots and how to plant and care for them. In this 90-minute virtual class, Marylee will also discuss colorizing your garden to fit in a desert landscape or add high-color focal points.

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

All classes are recorded, and you will receive the video and slides a few days after the class takes place.

Marylee Pangman

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. https://thepotteddesert.com
