0614PC Purposeful Perennials – Using Perennials in Containers

Wednesday, June 14

6-8 pm

We all love annuals, but at the end of the summer, most of them look pretty fried. They don’t need to be the mainstay of your containers – instead, why not go for foliage, form and flowers that are attractive and long lasting? Perennials have it all – you’ll save money because you can reuse them in your garden at the end of the season, or again in next year year’s containers. Join designer and author Christine Froehlich for this class at Broccolo Garden Center, 2755 Penfield Road, Fairport 14450, (585) 377-9810. Christine will demonstrate how to create container plantings that perform all summer and into fall: what to look for in a potting mix, how to plant for optimum performance, the many varieties of perennials that hold up well in containers, and how to select combinations for sun and shade. Students will receive an extra 10% discount on any materials purchased during the class (for members that is a total of a 20% discount). Members $22, non-members $32.
