Enjoy stunning arrangements of potted native plants as a focal point in your garden, and learn the secrets to getting the most vibrant foliage colors, interesting textures, and long-lived blooms. In addition, we'll cover how to design and maintain a native container garden long term,exploring various potting mediums and amendments, pests and diseases, and take a look at the options for the containers themselves.
