Including KISS Designs from Marylee, The Desert’s Potted Garden Expert

Create a container garden full of brightly colored flowers and lovely plants that are easy to care for and last a long season. In this class, Marylee will share her recommendations for reliable and easy-care plants that will last through the summer (with appropriate water and care.) The bonus in this class is that when the summer flowers are ready for your compost heap, you will know what to replace them with and save money by not replacing everything.

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

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
