Elizabeth Cull on Containers and Patio Gardens

Our April Speaker is Elizabeth Cull, owner of Dig This—Oak Bay (1990 Oak Bay Ave 250 598 0802) and now the Pacific Horticultural Centre gift shop. Elizabeth will discuss: selecting the latest lightweight containers; creating complete vegetable gardens on patios & balconies; and designing ornamental containers that never fail to impress. The passionate self-taught gardener comes from a long line of gardeners. “My great-grandfather had a palm house in England,” Elizabeth reveals. The Cull family garden is unruly cottage-style full of roses & bursts of tender tropicals.
