Saturday, October 13, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm – Container Gardening for the Urban Dweller


Aesthetically, your cramped city apartment may be about the furthest thing from Mr. McGregor’s garden, but if you’ve got a patio, porch or windowsill, you’ve got enough space to grow all the herbs, veggies and flowers they do in the countryside (with far less threat of Peter Rabbit ransacking your crops). Learn where and how to grow the garden you’ve always wanted. Instructor Iris Weaver will cover containers, soil, feeding and disease control, varieties of plants, growing conditions and more, at the Boston Center for Adult Education, 122 Arlington Street, on Saturday, October 13, from 11 – 3.  BCAE member cost is $41, non-members $48.  Register on line at www.bcae.org.  Image from www.thedailygreen.com.
