Sacramento Valley CNPS Chapter Meeting
Container Gardening with Natives

In 2020, Derek moved to Sacramento and took his bonsai collection with him, learning so much more about native plant care along the way! The move gave Derek some great opportunities to share his passion with CNPS and the City of Sacramento, having recently completed a half-barrel container garden project in the Old Sacramento Waterfront, which includes over 130 individual native plant specimens throughout the historic boardwalks. This talk will focus on important lessons Derek has learned through various forms of native plant container gardening and how to start gardening natives in a temporary living situation or without a “yard”. In addition to sharing about plant species, he will discuss where he sources plants and growing media, soil mixtures for containers, watering methods and drainage, mycorrhizae and maintaining a healthy root ball, all through a bonsai lens.
