How it Works

  • Reserve your date and time using the Reservation link below.  
  • Upon arrival, check-in at the planting counter at the back of our retail greenhouse.
  • If you plan to bring your own container, you may bring it in with you. 
  • We will provide detailed instructions for selecting and planting your patio containers according to the size of pot, sun exposure and level of maintenance desired.
  • We will also provide design ideas to help get you started and will assist along the way, depending on your level of experience.

Helpful Hints

  • This is an outdoor activity (under cover) so please dress accordingly.
  • We will continue to require the Covid Safety Protocols of mask wearing and social distancing even though this is an outdoor activity.
  • You may choose to bring your own gardening gloves if desired.  Disposable gloves will be provided and hand-washing is available.
  • Children are welcome, however please plan to supervise them during the activity.


  • Varies depending on plant and container selection.  Once you finish your potting, you will simply pay for the plants and containers you’ve selected.   You are welcome to bring your own container and/or purchase from our selection.  Please let us know in the notes section if you are planning to plant more than one container.  Soil is free of charge.


  • Please click on the link below to make your reservation.
  • One reservation is required per planting session.  If you will be bringing ‘helpers’, there is a place to note that on the reservation form.  For example:  If a family of 4 wishes to plant one planter together, only one reservation is required.  If several people wish to each plant their own container at the same time, reservations should be made by each individual.
  • We can accommodate up to 4 reservations per hour. 
  • We will provide individual space to keep each group ‘socially distanced’.
  • If you have any questions, please feel free to call us during business hours.  503-628-2172
