Seaside Garden Club’s April Meeting

Deborah Trickett of the Captured Garden, will present a Jaw-Dropping Container Demonstration. Two containers will be demonstrated and raffled. Deborah Trickett is the owner of the Captured Garden (http://thecapturedgarden.com/). First, she will demonstrate some unique and beautiful container gardens with a power point lecture. Next, she will create 2 container gardens as we observe her design choices and technique. Deborah designs these to be beautiful, and anything but typical. She showcases uncommon plants and creates combinations that are anything but cookie cutter. At the end of the program, we will have a chance to win her two designs. Guests are welcome, there is a $5 fee for non-members.
