Don’t get burned by all those cute little Pinterest posts floating around out there. (Hint: succulents do not want to live in humid, moist, enclosed vessels.) Creating and maintaining a successful terrarium garden is both an art and a science. GH’s Erica Doud will lead you through the wilderness of mis-information and draw back the curtain on the mysteries of terrarium gardening. The workshop fee covers a selection of plants and vessels to choose from, plus a variety of potting media and decorative rocks and other accoutrements. At the end of the workshop, you get to take home your very own masterpiece!
- Selecting the right plants and the right vessel
- Planting techniques
- Watering, light, & on-going care instructions
- Identifying & troubleshooting pests/problems
