May I get a street side planter from PHS?
While we are not running any programs like the one you describe, there are many sources now in the Center City and greater Phila area for many interesting containers and plants. You can also try the big box stores- sometimes they have a good supply too. The link below called Container Gardenening is a list of resources from the McLean Library: recommended books, videos, websites and more, to help you learn about container gardening. The additional links are good sources for containers and plants. Check the PHS calendar for workshops on container gardening.
Best of luck with your project!
