Celebrating National Garden Week

A workshop attendee planting her vegetable container

The first event the Westlake Garden Club held for National Garden Week was today, June 6, 2016.  We hosted a "Vegetable Gardening in Containers" workshop at Dean's Greenhouse in Westlake, OH.  We learned what vegetables do best in containers and that some vegetables are being grown specifically for containers and small spaces.  These vegetables have normal sized fruit but require less space for the plant itself.  Some good examples are tomatoes and peas.  We then went into the greenhouse and selected vegetables to plant in our containers.  Alice, who conducted the workshop, was very knowledgeable about vegetables, soil, fertilizers, etc.  Thanks go to those who attended the workshop and a big thank you to Dean's Greenhouse and Alice for hosting and conducting the workshop.
