What to look for: Each season Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers create a display for the Pitt County Arboretum in a set of three large containers. The container team selects plants that do well in full sun, and follow the theme of thriller, filler, and spiller to add a display that will last a full season - in this case - from spring to late summer. 

Horticulture: Irrigation is by hand.
