March Meeting Recap

Tammyanne Matthews

Creative Containers

by 

Heather Fayers

No need for a garden tour, thanks to Tammyanne Matthews presentation of her creations for Vancouver’s wealthy gardeners who have no time to select pots, planters and plants. 

A few of her excellent tips are:

Let the location, architecture, paving material and purpose guide your selection of permanent planters.

Tammyanne Matthews

When planting up, remember the rule of thirds and install good watering and drainage systems to avoid premature death to your creations.

Good loose potting soil (Sunshine #4) and slow release fertilizer (Osmocote 14-14-14) are recommended for maintaining good flower production. 

Dead head regularly and consider night lighting to extend the time to appreciate the beauty you created. 

Who knew that modern CorTen steel planters and classic olive jars and urns were available in Vancouver; or that pots left in the ocean for a year could be so beautiful! 

Forget the budget! Celebrate the possibilities!
