Container Gardens to Enhance your Living Space

By Sue Davis

Rowan County Extension Master Gardener

Beth Leonard, owner of Beth’s Greenhouse in Lexington, is coming to Rowan County June 12 at 1 p.m. to speak on Container Gardens to Enhance your Living Space.

She will help you love to create containers for use at your doorstep or spread throughout your garden. You will gain confidence in designing and planting containers appropriate anywhere.

Focusing on the individual elements of container gardening, Leonard will demonstrate building beautiful flowering pots that will remain attractive for the entire season and perhaps beyond. She will give tips on successful container gardening for flowers, herbs and vegetables.

Your creativity will be your guide in mixing plant types and colors. You can find Leonard’s container gardens on Main Street in Lexington and Salisbury, including Hair Associates and The Medicine Shoppe on W. Innes St.

At Beth’s Greenhouse, emphasis is given to annuals and vegetable starts, but quite a few perennials are offered, as well. Everything is grown on site from seed, cutting or division.

Leonard has been offering plants for sale at her greenhouse and various markets for 29 years. The greenhouses are located on Leonard Road in Welcome, 8 miles north of Lexington and two blocks south of Welcome Elementary School.

Beth’s Greenhouse is a small, quaint place nestled behind her mother-in-law’s home at 3629 Leonard Road. Beth has chosen to keep her business small so that she can keep her hands in the soil and on the plants, doing what she loves.

Come and learn how to grow a colorful kaleidoscopic garden full of containers spread throughout your current plantings.

Container Gardens to Enhance your Living Space will be at the Extension Office, 2727 Old Concord Road, Salisbury, NC at 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 12. It will be necessary to make reservations by calling 704-216-8970 so we can plan for refreshments and seating.
