Container Design Trends and Best Container Varieties

w/ Barbara Pierson of White Flower Farm

The possibilities are endless with container gardening! The gardener’s experience is essential when making decisions about containers and plants. Barbara Pierson of White Flower Farms has been creating container gardens for White Flower Farm for over 20 years; no one knows more about which plants are tried and true or which plants are promising new introductions like she does. Current trends in container gardening will be covered, so the audience can be assured that their creations are fashionable!

Barbara Pierson has been Nursery Manager at White Flower Farm since 1998. She has appeared as a guest on popular television and radio shows, such as, WNPR's The Faith Middleton Show and Martha Stewart Radio's Morning Living.

Guests will receive a handout, as well as a catalogue. There will be a free drawing for a chance to win a White Flower Farm gift certificate. Refreshments will be served after the presentation.
