Planting Containers for Sun & Shade Class @ Joy Creek Nursery | Scappoose | Oregon | United States

Garden designer and plantsman Bob Hyland talks about the joy of container gardening.  There is an ever-expanding palette of cast stone, terra cotta, earthenware, and lightweight resin containers.  Bob discusses their pro’s and con’s.  For Portland’s dry summers, Bob favors succulents (both hardy and tender), grasses, and dry-climate plants with low-water requirements and beautiful architecture, but he is also versatile and experienced with many planting styles and will demonstrate artful container compositions from Joy Creek’s expansive offerings.

Bob Hyland is a garden designer, former nurseryman and newcomer to the Portland gardening scene.  His pots at his former Loomis Creek Nursery in New York were featured in the New York Times and the annual Wave Hill Gardeners’ Party.
