Instructor:  Vince Molnar, Riverland Nursery Owner

Container gardening can be an incredibly creative, engaging activity!  With an abundance of containers to choose from, it is simple to create beautiful designs that complement your landscape. A striking container can provide the setting for a stunning display of unique plants that create a strong visual draw. They can be particularly useful for creating curb appeal, a dramatic entryway, interest to a pool area, and can provide privacy around sitting areas.

Vince Molnar, Riverland Nursery Owner, will conduct the class. Vince will showcase a number of different containers from Riverland's extensive selection, and will focus on three main types of containers - Asian, Mexican, and composite.  He will be showcasing different types of containers and discussing the benefits of each.  Vince will then demonstrate container gardening basics such as, "Thriller, Filler, and Spiller," and will discuss maintenance and care.  Come equipped with your creativity, as we will be sharing ideas!
