Think beyond spring and summer! Container gardens are the perfect way to keep your home looking beautiful for the holidays and through the winter season. In this class, students will learn easy to follow planting and design tips to create a seasonal porch pot that fits their personal style:
Option 1: Traditional Textures
Enjoy the traditional textures of fresh evergreens such as: Cedar, White Pine, Fraser Fir, and Spruce. Then, add in personal touches with berries, ribbon, and preserved dried goods.
Option 2: The Natural Approach
Take a more natural approach while using materials from local Rochester gardens. Red Twigged Dogwood, Curly Willow branches, Sedum, Goldenrod, Hydrangea, Grass, Allium, Thistle and Norway Spruce cones provide a beautiful selection to choose from.
Please note: Seeping sap from fresh evergreens can be sticky and get on your clothes, so be sure to dress appropriately. Although not required, consider bringing garden pruners and gardening gloves to enhance your class experience.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
This class will take place indoors at Jamie's Greenhouse, located at 1965 Watson Hulburt Rd. Macedon, NY. The greenhouse is on the Macedon-Fairport border and may show up as Fairport on a GPS.
