Happy Friday, Gardening Friends,
It’s been a chilly start to April but that doesn’t need to stop us from getting ready for planting. That’s the wonderful thing about using containers to grow vegetables and other plants – they don’t take up as much room. But more importantly, they’re much less labor intensive than even an average sized garden and you can do some of the prep work indoors in a garage if you choose. Another positive attribute of container gardening is the bountiful harvest that you can get from 12-inch containers.
Sydney’s Green Garden offers containers that are resilient to extremes in weather – they’re built to last, and they look great, too! Scott has also tested many different seeds over the course of several summers to determine the best varieties to grow in containers, as well as for our climate. Seeds, kits, and containers are available for purchase on this website, at The Bookstore at Fitger’s, and at Mount Royal Fine Foods.
Giving back to the community is a great way to be involved and help. Scott likes to give container gardening workshops throughout the Duluth and Superior region. He does this free of charge – when a monetary fee is given, he donates it to Northern Lakes 2nd Harvest Food Bank. He believes it’s important to give back whenever we can – what a great way to show you care by helping to feed the hungry in our own neighborhoods!
His philosophy carries over to his business by helping people to feed themselves by growing healthy, pesticide and herbicide free vegetable plants.
If you ever have an opportunity to catch one of his workshops, you’ll be hooked on container gardening. He has two upcoming workshops:
April 26, 6 PM, Whole Foods Coop – 4th Street location
April 28, 6 PM, Whole Foods Coop – NEW Denfeld location

Enjoy your weekend,
From your friends at SGG
