SHOP TALK: Container Gardening
by The Featherweight Shop

Welcome back to Shop Talk here at The Featherweight Shop! We love our local chit chat with staff, gathering around the dinette table so-to-speak (because that is what we have!) and sharing with one another. In these segments, we exchange patterns, recipes, organizational ideas, history quips, gardening tips, crafty projects, and smiles about learning an old-fashioned way of doing things. Shop Talk is the fun tidbits of news!

Container gardening is a beautiful way to dress up patios, balconies and garden edges. Ranging in size from small to large, these beautiful pots are ideal to use through your normal gardening seasons. Although we do love our brightly colored flowers that bloom throughout the year, it is favorable to have your handful of plants that will be with you, year-around, lending to consistent color in your garden.
