Washington to discover advantages of indoor container gardening

March 28, 2021 by  

While growing an outdoor garden may be a pleasant activity, a Washington workshop will show how container horticulture may offer a solution to anyone short on space.

Cultivate the City’s Indoor and Container Gardening 101 learning session will teach people how they can make the most of their available space, even if it is as little as a windowsill. The planners explained that it is suitable for the beginner green thumb, and the $10 registration fee includes a plant and container to help them get started.

During the workshop, the registrants will learn how to choose the plants best suited to their growing conditions, budget and time. There will be a discussion of how using sub-irrigation can lead to growing success, making it possible to keep an indoor garden watered even when on vacation. The students will be able to get their hands dirty when they try out some of the techniques they will be taught.

This sort of class is often a good choice for those who have little to no horticultural experience. Supplying the learners with additional materials will make it easier for them to care for their plants, and these will be available from local print shops.

Cultivate the City has made plans to offer this in-person activity on July 25. The venue for the function is situated at 910 Bladensburg Road Northeast.
