I understand your
challenges

I first gardened in upstate New York and as simple as it is to grow things there, I was not a good gardener.
____

Fast forward 44 years and I'm living in a desert town where we're told we can grow plants 365 days a year.
____

As a desert newcomer, I had no idea what to plant. We tried things that were "pretty" when we bought them. But, after our first hot summer and winter with temperatures below freezing, I was frustrated. I thought I was moving to a land with continual gardens.
____

Deciduous winter plants and ho hum cactus did not fill our small yard with the color I was craving.

I've been there too

I turned to pots because it seemed like it would be easier. I went to the nursery to buy flowers for bursting color in my pots. I worked hard on those pots for two years and suffered the loss of those planted in the wrong space, the wrong amount of water.

I definitely had some successes but oh, so many failures. Money out the window - or into the compost heap.

That's why I created

Paul B

Paul is a dedicated and experienced container gardener. He joined The Seriously Potted after attending his first class with Marylee hoping to advance his knowledge and design skills by working more closely with her.

"The Seriously Potted" membership has propelled my gardening skills and knowledge to a whole new realm. The resources, monthly Q&A, and virtual classes have accelerated my learning - it would have taken me years to get my garden to the level it is today - and I'm enjoying colorful blooms all year long!

Jeri D

Jeri gardens in a small yard in the unshaded heat of southern Tucson. She is a diligent gardener with a great eye for color and textures. Her pictures demonstrate what can be done with only a few xl pots.

I've learned so much, Marylee. It's a great pleasure and keeps me interested in improving my desert garden sense. Thanks a bunch!

Carolyn M.

Another early subscriber, Carolyn is a snowbird with her northern home in a mild climate and a self-proclaimed beginner in desert gardening. Her gardener husband has never created container gardens so she has started from square 1.

The Seriously Potted is for beginners like me, too. The photo of my pots may not seem like much to some people. This is the first time I haven't killed every plant I've planted. More importantly, I've discovered the pleasure and enjoyment of making container gardens. Thanks, Marylee! You added a new dimension to my life, one that is richer than I could have imagined.

Barbara W.

Barbara developed a different style of container gardening in the desert years ago. We've had many discussions about the differences in my "rules" and what she has achieved. We have decided that there is plenty of room for unique styles as long as they work. She plants in small (12-16 inch) pots cluster together with a vast array of radiant colors. Barbara readily admits that she has learned a lot to add to her self-taught knowledge and experience.

My membership in The Seriously Potted has been so inspiring. Marylee has gathered her incredible wealth of knowledge in desert container gardening to teach us how to make our own beautiful long-lasting, flowering containers.

Kathy O.

Kathy was one of the founding members of The Seriously Potted. She's embraced every article posted, been active in our live sessions and in all of my classes. This picture represents her successful design of a new sitting area on her back patio with a statement pot to soften the hardscape.

Up to now I've only had succulents, cactus and geraniums. Using your techniques is enabling me to branch out into plants I didn't think I could have. Thanks for developing this service. I've learned a lot in a short time.
