Master Gardener Marylee Pangman gives new meaning to the phrase “Get Potted”. She has found the perfect solution for both home and business owners who want to beautify their exteriors year-round but find it a challenge contending with Tucson’s challenges.
The Potted Desert View
This blog is for you, the native or transplanted desert dweller. Our harsh and varied desert climates continually present a challenge for gardeners. Those of you who have moved from a colder climate such as the mid-west or New England, you have most likely tried to find container gardening information that tells you how to grow the kind of garden like you had 'back home.'
