DIY Mother’s Day Dish Garden – (webinar with craft at home)

Saturday, May 9, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$60.00 – $70.00

Just in time for Mother’s Day!   Learn the basics of making a dish garden and come away with a beautiful gift to give to someone you love. A complete dish garden kit will be available for a curbside pickup at the nursery; you will receive an email about a pick-up time.  In addition, access a prerecorded webinar tutorial where we show you step-by-step how to assemble your dish garden, followed by a live 30 minute Q & A  with instructor, Cricket Riley on Saturday, May 9 at 10am.  Planting and learning with others from the comfort of your home…it’s the best of both worlds!

The workshop fee includes:

  • Dish Garden Kit.  All kits will include a container, Bancroft potting soil, top dressing, Maxsea fertilizer, drywall tape for drainage hole, and locally sourced bamboo stick (to help with planting) and a ceramic bird or gnome.  This will include a curated selection of plants that will be complimentary for your container; no special requests at this time.
  • Video tutorial on how to assemble a dish garden.
  • Live Q&A session with instructor, Cricket Riley, on May 9th at 10am.
