November 2, 1 – 2:30pm.   Vertical G(art)ening: Bringing the Natural Beauty of the World Closer FREE

Kristel GramlichWhen introduced about ten years ago, vertical gardens were mostly being made in rectangular shapes. The public enjoyed the novelty of seeing eye-level gardens, as well as their relatively easy care and portability. Soon there was a desire for more creative presentations.

Now, vertical gardens can be found in every shape, frame and configuration imaginable. Still, pointers are needed for the most suitable containers, and techniques for creating an eye-pleasing, long-lasting garden.

Come meet Plantasy’s owner and founder Kristel Gramlich to find out why Sunset Magazine called her Vertical G(art)ens #1 Best in the West! Learn what sets her product apart from the competition and what plant varieties work best for both indoors and out!
