Week Three: Gardening Workshop

Short, Stubby, Tall and Thin; the new Container Diet
Speaker/Guide: Chris Flanders and Melinda Wolcott
Location: Smith Wilkes Hall

Visit with Chris and Melinda as they take a fresh new look at container gardening with an easier look, less maintance and create a focal point without the whole garden! Landscaping the easier way with container plants and how to arrange for maximum effect  - by the way, their sense of humor is worth the visit! 


From California in the off season and from Magnolia in the summertime, Melinda, a BTG life member,  is a well trained flower arranger, gardener and a new winery owner in CA. While living in Connecticut, she was a speaker on many gardening topics and a well published writer on gardening in the trade magazines. 

Chris, a lifelong resident of CHQ county, attended CHQ since the 1960s and full time for the past four years. An avid sailor, retired Critical Care Nurse Practitioner, former horse breeder and trainer Chris achieved Master Gardener certification in 2013. As a board member of BTG she has found my home base in CHQ and holds dual roles as Chair of Butterflies and Blooms and garden lecturer.
