Meadow Containers: Pollinator Friendly Pots

Pocket gardens and pocket meadows are bite-sized plantings; crammed with plants suggestive of much larger gardens or open spaces, they are often very small – sometimes no larger than a pot on a stoop.  But despite their size, they are great opportunities to expand an area’s plant diversity and to create much needed habitat for displaced pollinators looking for food, rest or places to nest.   Make your own pollinator haven using locally-grown native and near native plants in a container perfect for your deck, porch or balcony. Landcraft’s horticulturist and educator will guide the selection and arrangement of plants and how to craft and incorporate additional nesting structures for beneficial insects and animals within the planting.  Containers are provided. Fun for children and adults.
