Outdoor Living Areas and Special Features

Lecture no. 5 from the course: How to Grow Anything: Container Gardening Tips & Techniques

Outdoor Living Areas and Special Features

Taught by Professor Melinda Myers | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

Start by learning how to approach outdoor seating and lounging areas from the gardener’s perspective and discover how to mix and match containers and plants to create the mood you want. Then, find out some tried-and-true ways to solve the pesky problems of common pests and plagues (from aphids to mosquitos to plant rot). Finally, dabble in the creation of eye-catching theme gardens, such as a tropical paradise (even in colder climates) and a miniature “fairy” garden kids will enjoy.
