Small Space Gardening Workshop

Master Gardener and Interior Designer Denise Maurer will be presenting a workshop entitled, Contain Your Garden on Thursday, May 23rd, at 3PM, prior to Nina’s Hidden Garden Tour, at the Troy Public Library’s Main Location.

You can get maxi gardening results in mini spaces. That’s the beauty of growing your favorite perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs or even trees in a container. And, since your garden is smaller, it minimizes the tending time. During the class you’ll learn how to select the right container, the plants that will work best for you, and all the “nitty-grittiest” to keep your garden happy and healthy.

This program is free and open to the public. Please make reservations by calling the library at 518-274-7071 or register online at

The Troy Public Library is located at 100 2nd Street, Troy, New York.
