Spring Garden Planter Design Workshop
Our Spring Garden Planter Design Workshop last week was a total success! It was creative, hands-on, informative and everyone had a great time putting their own planters together.
Our beautiful studio was the perfect setting for special guest Diane Bridges, of DB Gardens, to share her expertise and design ideas. Everyone had a chance to get in touch with their creativity while enjoying good company, conversation, and wine.
Our swag bags included of course gardening gloves, a Garden Iris bulb to plant soon, a beautiful natural soap to clean up with, and a notebook and pen to take notes with. In addition, we supplied everything our participants needed to work on their projects right here in the studio.
There was dirt was flying as Diane explained the fundamentals of planter design. We also learned about what to consider when designing a planter, what supplies you are going to need, how to pick your plants, how to care for your containers, and where to go to buy it all.
Thrillers, fillers, and spillers; growing habits, themes, and colour all play an important role in putting your planter together. You will also need to consider the time of the year, and whether you want annuals or perennials and how to mix plant varieties.
Our next Garden Planter Design workshop will be in the fall. Please check back on our website for info and new dates will be posted soon.
