Making the Most of Small Gardens, Master Gardener Jolly Butler

Small spaces offer big opportunities for creating lively, colorful gardens.  Master Gardener, Jolly Butler, will guide us through the special design considerations, consideration of scale, soil needs and the many plant options available for creating a delightful small space garden.


Jolly Butler became familiar to gardeners throughout the Portland area through her “Gardening 101” column in Garden Showcase  magazine.  Many gardeners learned their gardening basics in her classes at Portland Community College.
