At the regular March meeting of the Kaufman County Master Gardener Association, Master Gardener Bonnie Hoover drew on her experiences in Holland–and her wonderful photographs–to show the impact of limited space on gardening practices in Holland. She showed many examples of small, or “pocket,” gardens on medians, between sidewalks and streets, in planters on porches and many other settings. Ms. Hoover also discussed an American version of pocket gardens: creating wall-hanging gardens in picture frames, drawers and other containers.
