Master Gardeners speak at South Hill library

South Boston News
The R.T. Arnold Library in South Hill hosted a gardening program with Master Gardener Nancy Drewry. She presented a program on container gardening that offered insights into how to plant and maintain your household plants. To become a Master Gardener, one must have 50 hours of classroom instruction and 50 hours of hands-on work with the general public and then complete eight hours of continuing education and 20 hours of service yearly. Drewry presented an interesting and informative program on the advantages and disadvantages of container gardening, selecting containers, and plants that are suitable for containers. You can use any kind of material you like for containers — there are many kinds including metal, wood, cement, terra cotta, fiberglass and more. You can use a watering can, old boots, wheelbarrows — anything goes, as long as the container has a hole in the bottom for drainage. You need to decide what the purpose of the plants and containers is going to be — whether to serve as a conversation piece, a focal point, or to impart a rustic or off-beat look. With her is program chairman Steve Hinzman. (Lisa Clary photo)
