Container gardening tips offered on April 6

Missouri City Branch Library will present a program on “Container Gardening,” on Saturday, April 6, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 1530 Texas Parkway.

James (Boone) Holladay, County Extension Agent with the Texas Agrilife Extension Office in Fort Bend County, will discuss container gardening for inside and outside the home. Whether the gardener has limited space, limited mobility, or simply wants to enhance the landscape with different types of plantings, container gardening offers a variety of alternatives.

Holladay will also demonstrate how to properly build and maintain the container structures. Gardeners of all experience levels who are interested in learning more about container gardening are welcome to attend.

Holladay received his undergraduate degree in Horticulture from Stephen F. Austin State University and his graduate degree in Agricultural Education from Texas A&M University. He helped to develop an urban youth horticulture program in Houston, and has also worked at Moody Gardens in Galveston.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2100 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
