Container Gardening with Native Plants
Mervin Wallace, Missouri Wildflowers Nursery
While many folks grow annual bedding plants outside in containers, and there are many articles about that topic to be found in gardening magazines, this presentation focuses on using native perennials in containers. Topics covered will include choosing plants, potting soil, mulch, fertilizer, watering, and winter care. Included will be growing emergent water plants in containers that hold water. Look at how some plants have held up over time. A list, including helpful information and comments about plants that have worked in pots, will be available.
