Hanging Basket Workshop

Join the fun in this hands-on workshop and create a beautiful fourteen-inch moss-lined hanging basket, filled with an array of pink and purple flowers and ornamental foliage.

Alone, or paired with a container garden from the workshops on May 12 and herb garden from the workshops on May 19, you’ll have blooms to savor all season.

To thrive, these baskets will require a sunny location with a minimum of four to six hours of sun, and a sturdy hook or bracket to hang from.

 All supplies are included in this workshop, and latex gloves are available. (You're welcome to bring your own gloves if you'd prefer.)  Baskets are a bit tricky to transport but an old blanket or two in your trunk makes for an easy clean up and provides a way to help cradle your basket during the drive home. 

Payment is required in advance due to materials fees, and is non-refundable. This program is limited to eight people, and must have a minimum of four participants to take place.  In the event that the workshop is cancelled, participants may choose to participate in another session.
