Details

Are you ever confused when you get to the garden shop and can’t decide on which bag of plant media is the right one to buy?  Or went home with your new plants only to have them suddenly die 3 months later?  Participants will get to see, feel and smell, the different types of plant media and compare their similarities, and identify the pros and cons of some of the most popular bagged-to-go garden potting mixes.
