For city dwellers, growing plants outdoors often means gardening in containers. Whether you live in an apartment, condo, townhome or house, our Urban Container Gardening series will get you prepared to grow ornamental plants or edibles in containers at your city home. For this two-part miniseries, you can attend either one or both seminars, as they’ll cover complementary information.
For the first part, Extension Master Gardeners Cathy Halloran and Jackie MacLeod will lead you through the steps of determining how much sun you have, choosing containers and potting medium, checking drainage and irrigation, the tools you’ll need, and choosing plants for success for your sun exposure.
Join the Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteers of Durham County to learn gardening tricks and tips at the Cocoa Cinnamon Container Gardeners.

In the beginning, there were plants – EVERYWHERE! Plants spread across the Earth from the depths of the oceans to rocky mountain peaks. That didn’t happen with just one
method of propagation. Join us for a look at the various propagation techniques that plants employ. Learn how to facilitate their natural tendencies to produce an abundance of your favorites.
Disclaimer: Plant propagation may be habit-forming
