I'm so excited to announce the launch of my BRAND NEW online  class Container Gardening to Suit Your Style, filmed for Garden Gate magazine earlier this year. This class goes far beyond the basics of teaching about soils and fertilizers although I do cover that. I teach you to understand and interpret the key characteristics of SIX unique design styles, planting up examples of each, including waterwise, tropical, and contemporary. The downloadable Resources offer even more ideas for plants you may want to explore as well as full planting plans.

You'll own the class forever, can watch it whenever you like, on any device. You can even ask questions via a private Facebook Group that will be set up for students to share their questions, successes and more.

Intrigued?

Watch this trailer and get a sneak peek at the content and designs!

    My favorite is soft and romantic. What a great idea for a video course.



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 8:22 am

      Thanks for entering Nancy! Good luck



  2. Craig on December 5, 2017 at 8:42 am

    Year round beauty would be my pick as it would be something I could use in small scale like a container and also in a larger setting elsewhere in the garden. I think it would help tie in the full garden with specific moments in pots. Thank you for the opportunity!



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 8:57 am

      So glad you've entered Craig!



      • Susan Stuart on December 11, 2017 at 7:22 pm

        HI Karen,
        Year round interest is my favorite kind of container, here in WA state! I like to use bulbs and rhizomes, along with evergreen foliage, to create multi seasonal surprises!



  3. Katie MacKenzie on December 5, 2017 at 8:59 am

    Definitely year-round beauty! I live in New Hampshire so it's nice to have something pretty to look at it this time of year (and particularly in March when my view is dirt-covered mounds of snow in various stages of melt, ha ha).



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 9:10 am

      That sounds COLD!!! Thanks for entering Katie



  4. Cathi Lamoreux on December 5, 2017 at 9:48 am

    My evolving taste has me squarely in the camp of all season style using plants that are beneficial to pollinators and plants that hold their shape and provide interesting details and color all winter in a Z5 climate.



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 9:56 am

      Good luck Cathi!



  5. Kim Van Atta on December 5, 2017 at 10:12 am

    Karen, the class looks fabulous! I'm a fan of contemporary container designs that include bold color elements.



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 10:27 am

      Thanks Kim! I think you'd like several of these designs – lots of great foliage! Good luck.



  6. Diane on December 5, 2017 at 10:51 am

    Picking only one type of container is hard. I love them all! Since it's winter now, I need year round beauty, but I know next spring it will be big, bold and beautiful. I have never tried asian inspired but I'm sure I'd love it too. Hoping I win! I have your first book and am hoping to get your new one soon. Merry Christmas.



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 11:32 am

      Hi Diane – Merry Christmas to you too! Good luck – both with your Santa wish list and this giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚



  7. Barb Husted on December 5, 2017 at 1:24 pm

    Waterwise would do the trick for us. We travel quite a bit and to have something that could tolerate our short absences and still look amazing would be wonderful.



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 1:38 pm

      Thanks for entering Barb – good luck!



  8. Denise on December 5, 2017 at 1:38 pm

    Karen, thanks for offering an on line class! Terrific time saver with everyone's busy schedules. Trying to break away from the container norm…..and like the bold, contemporary style. Happy Holidays!



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 1:39 pm

      I don't do 'norm' so you'll love them all Denise ๐Ÿ™‚



  9. Beth Shonts on December 5, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    Big, bold and beautiful so that I can fill in spots in my border garden.



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 4:15 pm

      Glad you've entered Beth!



  10. Donna Mckittrick on December 5, 2017 at 5:50 pm

    Hi Karen
    Love getting your e-mails!
    All of them would be wonderful, but I would have to go with big, bold and beautiful.
    I love the wow factor in some of my pots.
    Happy Holidays to you and your family.
    Donna



    • Karen Chapman on December 5, 2017 at 6:08 pm

      Hi Donna, how kind of you – thank you! I'm delighted you've entered to win this great prize – good luck!



  11. Karyn Kistner on December 6, 2017 at 7:30 am

    Hi Karen. If I had to pick just one style it would be year round beauty. I have both of your books and have been following you for some time now. I have learned so much from your other classes and your blog. I even bought some beautiful things from your husband to help me plant rows ha ha…..I also live in the Pacific Northwest. I love that the new online formats make this kind of design education available to people like me.



    • Karen Chapman on December 6, 2017 at 1:06 pm

      Thank you so much for your support and encouragement Karyn! Glad you've entered!



  12. Jean on December 6, 2017 at 1:35 pm

    My favorite would be year round beauty. I read and learned much from both of yor books and look forward to the online course.



    • Karen Chapman on December 6, 2017 at 4:49 pm

      Thank you Jean – I'm thrilled to know my books helped you – good luck !



  13. Kathleen Conery on December 7, 2017 at 11:03 am

    I gravitate to Asian styles in much of my art and decor preferences, but I like the eye catching power of bold shapes and colors… so a mix of those two, plus waterwise because I am forgetful sometimes. I guess I just can't pick one!
    Thank you for the giveaway!



    • Karen Chapman on December 8, 2017 at 2:15 pm

      You're welcome – good luck!



  14. CECILIA on December 7, 2017 at 11:30 am

    Love co ntainers that are big, bold, exciting, and season appropriate. For some sad reason, the plants in my containers often do not thrive …or simply rot. My own landscaping designs & plantings do great. Perhaps I either over water, or underwater, or the soil mix is not correct. I need to learn and/or get rid of bad habits. Thanks!



    • Karen Chapman on December 8, 2017 at 2:17 pm

      Lots of tips for you in my class Cecilia – good luck

  16. Clarice on December 7, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    I'm interested in year- round beauty. I live between Vancouver and Longview, so there should be options! I LOVE your books. I discovered them at my local library this summer, and I have checked them out several times since. I'm doing some garden expansion, and your foliage ideas are helping me with my plant choices!



    • Karen Chapman on December 8, 2017 at 2:17 pm

      Sounds like you need to have a word with Santa Clarice!!!



  17. Joyce G on December 8, 2017 at 4:31 pm

    I love the year- round style the most. I still have colorful bushes in my pots due to taking your course Foliage First on Craftsy. Love your Books and your knowledge of container gardening.



    • Karen Chapman on December 8, 2017 at 4:46 pm

      Hi Joyce, so glad you sound that class and my books helpful. I know you'd love this new class -good luck!

  19. Abbey on December 12, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    Waterwise, definitely! I resent schlepping a hose across the yard for plants that can't last a few days on their own in a South Texas summer.



    • Karen Chapman on December 12, 2017 at 11:15 pm

      Understandable!
