Container Gardening for Edible Plants with Hilary Dahl

Containers are a great way to grow food in a small or otherwise unusable space. They can turn a sunny patio, deck or even a driveway into a custom-sized, productive garden. For the purposes of this talk, we're going to define a container as any vessel that you're planting in that's smaller than a 4'x4'x12" raised bed. In this talk we'll cover:

  • How to site your container garden
  • Setting up a container garden
  • Irrigation 
  • Container garden fertilization and common nutrient issues
  • Annual and perennial crops that are well suited for containers

A PDF of webinar notes will be emailed to participants before the talk. 

The webinar will be recorded and all registered attendees will receive a link to watch the recording, so if you can't make the 10am PST start time, you can watch the webinar at a later time!
