Class: Containers & Trellis

Containers and trellises allow us to enjoy the fruits of gardening in small spaces, and add structure and dimension to the garden. There is limitless creative potential, from the style and structure of container, to the form and colors that we use to compliment them. And when there is no more room to grow outwards, grow it upwards! A trellis can make a lasting impression, and the sky's the limit to what kind of structure one can dream up.
