Getting Potted in the Desert
The book, “Getting Potted in the Desert" has been a long process of gathering all of these desert gardening experiences into one volume available for sale.
It is not just the difference in seasons but the intense heat, long growing seasons and challenging winters that require a different mindset as well as a defined practice to maintain a beautiful container garden.
Marylee used the practical learnings of growing potted gardens for 100’s of customers and teaching her tried and true methods for success to create this resource.
Since then, Marylee has been compelled to share all that she learned about container gardening over 3 decades of blistering summers and record-breaking winters through her recent venture, The Potted Desert.
Marylee sees container gardening as a way to have an oasis garden while conserving water, as the demands of pots are far less than heavily planted areas and beds.
With that in mind, Marylee strives to help homeowners keep their money out of the compost heap and create the garden of their dreams from the very first planting.
Newcomers to the desert and long time ‘desert dwellers’ alike will benefit by putting Marylee’s practices to use. This easy to follow guide will take you from black thumb to a garden of wonder. People will say to you, “I thought you lived in the desert. I did not realize you could garden successfully there!"
