NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University's SFA Gardens will host a hands-on container gardening seminar featuring Sharon Lee Smith from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 5 at the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the SFA Pineywoods Native Plant Center, 2900 Raguet St.

Smith will help home gardeners learn the "hows" and "whys" of container gardening, as cheerful container gardens provide beauty and color during the winter. Participants will then put their knowledge to use by creating their own exquisite container garden to take home.

Smith is an SFA graduate and co-owner of Blue Moon Gardens in Edom. She has been a garden designer for many years and loves working with color.

Pre-registration is required, and seminar space is limited. The cost is $55 for SFA Gardens members and $65 for non-members. Register by calling SFA Gardens at 936-468-4129 or email sfagardens@sfasu.edu.
