I recently taught a class at the Jordan Valley Conservation Garden Park on container gardening and raised bed gardening and, upon doing some research, rediscovered some really wonderful online resources that I want to make sure to share with everyone!

I promised I would upload my slides so you can find them below.

Container Gardening JV

I highly recommend this wonderful container gardening site from our friends at the University of Illinois Extension – the site has detailed information on all aspects of container gardening including ‘Blueprints for Building Containers’ for plant arrangement ideas and inspiration.

I also love our USU Extension fact sheet ‘Herb Container Gardening’.

If it’s raised beds you seek, check out our USU Extension fact sheet ‘Raised Bed Gardening’.

And finally, Michael Baird and myself (Michael is a Master Gardener and owner of Silvercreek Garden Boxes) put together an extensive YouTube video on building raised bed boxes here.

Whew, I think that is enough reading to get you through the rainy weekend, enjoy!
