Questions about our container garden workshop
A few of you have called and asked ‘Is the container workshop a 6 hour class?’
Gosh, no! Our workshop starts at 10 AM and is ongoing throughout the day till 4 PM. Come in anytime between those hours. After you have shopped for your plants, flowers and a container (if you didn’t bring one from home) pick your spot in our designated workshop area and start having fun!
Another question that’s been asked is ‘Do you (meaning our associates) plant our container for us?’ The answer is no, not really. Our knowledgeable and friendly associates will be happy to assist you while you do the planting and will help with any and all plant or design questions. We provide the potting soil (yes, it’s free) and we clean up the mess.
If you are bringing in large containers please bring in packing peanuts, chunks of Styrofoam or Styrofoam egg cartons to help fill the bottom of your container. It makes the container a whole lot lighter for you to transport back home and also, easier to rearrange in your garden if you want to change your outside decor.
Come to either our Cottage Grove location, 4311 Vilas Hope Road, or our Edgerton location, 1101 N Main St., for our Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6 container garden workshop. Workshop times are the same at both locations.
