“Pots with Pizzazz” the featured program at a joint meeting of the Franklin, Norfolk and Millis Garden Clubs

“Pots with Pizzazz” will be the featured program at a joint meeting of the Franklin, Norfolk and Millis Garden Clubs on Tuesday, November 1, at the Remington Middle School located on 628 Washington Street, Franklin. The program will begin at 7:00p.m. in the school cafeteria. It is open to the public.

Presenters will be Jana Milbocker and Joan Butler of Holliston-based Enchanted Gardens. The workshop will inspire participants to design jazzy containers that can be the “jewelry” of a garden, elevating it from “good” to “great”! 

Participants will learn how to brighten shady spots with pops of color, create focal points for vistas and welcoming entry gardens with stunning container groupings. Including designs for all seasons, the presenters will show examples of pots ranging from whimsical to grand. They will also provide information on creating unusual, eye-catching pots.
