It seems so far away on a day that starts with sun, moves on to snow, then hail..and then rainshowers…but we are officially less than 48 hours from the first day of spring! And that means of course, that there are events on the horizon..
Container Gardens LLC will be partnering with Eric Paulson of Dragon Gardens NW on two new container garden displays at Bridgeport Village beginning March 23rd. Dragon Gardens NW will supply six gorgeous pots to hold plant designs by Susan Lynch. The pots will remain on display at Bridgeport through April as part of their spring Va Va Bloom Event. After April you may look for the planted pots at their permanent home, the display garden now under construction at Dragon Gardens NW new location at 19100 SW Boones Ferry Rd. in Tualatin. Check out some of Dragon Gardens stunning handcrafted pottery at www.gotpots.com
On Saturday March 24 Container Gardens LLC will be participating in Clean Sweep, a volunteer project funded and coordinated by St. Johns Main Street Program. We will be leading a group of 20 sophomores from the University of Portland in installing new container plantings in the old urban pots in St. Johns main plaza. A total of 200 students from UP will be participating in this project, which will also include planting new street trees, cleaning up and replanting the downtown tree wells, graffiti removal, and many more projects to benefit the business and residential communities. Im happy to live in St. Johns, even happier to be a part of such a great event. Pray for sun and warm temperatures…..
At 1 pm on April 28th I will be presenting a container garden demo at Bridgeport Village Mall on behalf of Oregon Home Magazine. Please drop by and ask me your most pressing container gardening questions!
