Lin-Lin Lin and Jo Fleming worked in the Education Tent.  Lin-Lin Lin, pictured below, demonstrated how to plant a beautiful container planter.  First, start with a Thriller, a tall plant.  Next, put low growing plants to fill the container,  called Fillers.  Lastly,  plant flowers that will flow over the container,  Spillers.



Jo Fleming shared various techniques on how to propagate healthy succulents.


Clermont Garden Club sold decorative flower pots, garden gloves, and potted plants.  All monies raised are used to sponsor the Wekiva Youth Program, SEEK (Save the Earth’s Environment  through Knowledge), and ECHO (Educational Concerns for the Hungry Organization).
