Description Does the space you have at your school present a challenge when it comes to gardening? Do you only have concrete or tarmac? Come and find out about growing in different types of containers and other methods for managing these conditions such as growing vertically or on a roof. The day will include some of the following topics: the choice of containers, ideas on what grows well in containers, how to fill a container, moisture retention, feeding your plants and combinations of plants that work well, planting green roofs, growing plants up fences and walls and plant choices for shade. Growing both edible and ornamental plants will be covered and low cost options will be discussed.
