1:30 PM Martha Joiner – Build your own container bog garden to take home limit 15 registrants $15.00
Class space is limited to 15 – First 15 people to sign up! Take a bog garden home with you.
Martha Joiner will teach us how to build our own little bog garden in a container. Please bring your own container. It should be about 12 inches in diameter by 4 inches high with a hole in the bottom. It can vary some and a square container is fine. There may perhaps be some containers available to buy.
The Coastal Plain Chapter of the Georgia Native Plant Society is donating the bog plants for your project. The proper soil will be included in the cost of the class.
