Learn to Grow Plants in Vertical Container & Rain Gutters June 11 at Free Class in Ozark

If gardening space is limited, there are new options for frustrated gardeners. Christian County Master Gardeners will host a free class on vertical gardening and rain gutter gardening Saturday, June 11, at 10 a.m. at the demonstration garden at the Ozark Community Center, 1530 W. Jackson, Ozark.

Margie Wakefield, Master Gardener, will discuss how to build a vertical grow tower out of a plastic barrel. She also will discuss rain gutter gardening, a technique in which rain gutters are capped; hung from ceilings or attached to free-standing structures; and planted with strawberries, herbs, lettuce, succulents, pansies and other annual plants suitable for containers.

Register for this free event at 581-3558.

In addition to its demonstration garden, CCMG:
  • Maintains flower gardens in Ozark, Nixa and Clever
  • Staffs a gardening hotline, Monday to Friday, 9-12, from mid-March to mid-October at the Extension office
  • Hosts free public seminars
  • Writes a gardening column in the Christian County Headliner News
