Spring Outdoor Shade Container Design Workshops
Shade Container | Tuesday, May 23, 6-8 p.m. | Register Now
Bachman's on Lyndale, Design Room
Cost: $50 for one container, $100 for two

Captivating containers to dress up your outdoor space are easy for anyone with a few helpful tips! First, determine if your container and plantings prefer a sunny (6+ hours of sun per day) or shady (less than 6 hours of sun per day) location. Second, choose a hands-on seminar led by a Bachman’s design expert to learn how to incorporate “thriller, filler, spiller” techniques for a show-stopping container that will last the entire season. Ticket expense covers all materials used in your garden creation.
