Workshop: Container Vegetable Gardening

Love Apple Farms - Santa Cruz, California

Whether you want to grow tomatoes in hanging baskets, or you want to utilize a small space, our Container Vegetable Gardening class is the workshop for you. Learn all about how to successfully grow vegetables in containers. It's harder than it looks! From the proper potting soil to use, to a plethora of available container options, we also investigate space requirements, sunlight needs, the all-important fertilizing, and companion planting for maximum yield and results.

We will discuss warm weather-loving crops like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, melons, cucumbers, squashes, corn, and more. This workshop is ideal for: - Renters who need to take their gardens with them when they move. - Those who have gopher problems. - Plots with poor soil or other disease issues. - Apartment dwellers who don't have any ground to grow in. - Folks with large decks who would like to grow vegetables in pots rather than the standard landscape container plants.
