Event

Pond Container Gardening

  • This event has passed.

Pond pots, sometimes referred to as “still pots,” nestle nicely into small spaces, such as balconies or decks, but they can also be tucked into nooks and crannies in spacious gardens. Kelly Billing, coauthor of The Water Gardener’s Bible and The Lotus: Know It and Grow It, demonstrates how you can turn just about anything that holds water into a low-maintenance water garden. From lotus to waterlilies to pitcher plants and more, learn how to select plants, choose pots, conduct annual maintenance, and control mosquitoes and other pests.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, July 15, 2023.

About the Instructor:
Kelly Billing is a Maryland Certified Professional Horticulturist with more than 32 years of experience in the water gardening industry. She compiled and maintains the Aquatic Plant Invasive Species List for the nursery trade and is coauthor of The Water Gardener’s Bible and The Lotus: Know It and Grow It.
