Four Season Container Gardening
Presented by Michael Bowell, Create A Scene, Malvern, PA
Michael will combine a slide show lecture with a demonstration of his exuberant planting style as he packs plants into containers. It may look like plant abuse but the results can be amazing. Learn special techniques that Michael has developed over many years of successful container gardening. Come and be entertained while learning about how to get started, soil mixes, drainage, fertilizing, design, clor schemes and long-term maintenance. Michael often refers to himself as a self professed plant geek. Everyone will take away new perspectives; be prepared for your own creative burst when you dive into your next container gardening adventure.
Michael Bowell, a noted garden designer and horticulturist, writes and speaks on many topics ranging from Orchid Growing and Exhibiting to Garden Design and Garden Fowl. Michael, an orchid specialist and American Orchid Society (AOS) judge, has exhibited at the Philadelphia Flower Show for decades and has been a major display exhibitor, winning several "Best of Show" awards at this prestigious event. He was awarded the Certificate of Merit by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in 2010. In 2011, Michael co-designed the multiple award-winning AOS display at the Philadelphia Flower Show, along with his partner, Simple (of Simple Garden Art). Michael's design firm, Create A Scene, offers full service plant and floral design, installation, and maintenance including indoor and outdoor gardens and containers.

More About Jenkins Arboretum
Jenkins Arboretum is a privately owned and operated natural arborteum that is open to the public free of charge 365 days per year. H. Lawrence Jenkins established the arboretum on his property as a memorial to his wife, Elisabeth Phillippe Jenkins, who was avid gardener. The Arboretum opened to the public in 1976. Views of the valley all the way to King of Prussia, as well as up-close views of nature can be seen along the 1.2 miles of paved pathways that wind through the 40+ acre site. The property features an education center that was finished in 2010 and five different garden areas, including Rhododendron Collection, Green Ribbon Native Plants®, The Woodland Garden, Wildflower Gardens and a Bog Garden
