18: Hanging Baskets
Join me in learning how to make beautiful Hanging Flower Baskets. Take advantage of the unused space by hanging flowers from your eaves or your front porch. Keep your blooms above the nibbling deer and away from nasty gophers. Learn what containers to use, what type of soil & what plants to use. The second half of the class I will make a container and demonstrate each step. One lucky winner will get to take this container home! Instructor: Kristin Ranken.
