This Week: Fabulous Foliage Workshop

Thursday, June 23rd 6pm-6:45 pm

OR Friday, June 24th 8:15am-9am

Class Fee: $25 (over $56 value!)

We will teach you about coleus and other fabulous foliage varieties, their care, and design ideas.
Included in class: Your choice of twelve 4 ½” pots of premium coleus or other selected foliage varieties
(There is an added plant discount for the class)
Bring your own empty planter or purchase one in store to create a design (extra charge for soil) or we will help you put together a design to bring home. Over 50 varieties to choose from. 12 plants will fill three or four 10-12” planters or one to three 15” or larger containers. Foliage is also great for filling in annual or perennial garden beds.
Annual foliage varieties add great color for summer with easy care. These varieties can take the heat and there are many choices for sun or shade! You planters will be great to fill in gaps, decorate for upcoming holidays, or create a gift!
Class will be held at Green Barn in our production greenhouse.  Pay after class.
