Join us at Creative Gardens this October to fill one-of-a-kind pumpkin pots handcrafted by Susan Weiner Ceramics! These pots are colorful and functional - the kind you’ll want to keep around for a long time - and a perfect table topper. We will fill the pots with succulents and accent with dried and preserved foliage, ribbon, and flowers to complete the arrangement. Succulents are very versatile and love the cool temperatures outdoors, but also can thrive indoors, so this project will look great throughout fall and into the Thanksgiving holiday (plus, the pumpkin won’t rot!). During class, we will also go over lighting, watering, pruning, propagation, and what to expect as your succulents grow. Each attendee will choose a copper or white 8-9” pumpkin pot.
Please note: Please choose pot color option from the drop down menu above. Although not required, we recommend bringing a lightweight pair of gardening gloves to enhance your class experience.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
This class will take place indoors at Creative Gardens, 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.
If you would like to request a sign language interpreter or will be attending class with an aide, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
