Workshop – Container Gardening with Succulents

Container gardening with succulents (90 minutes). This is a FUN event to uncover your creative skills and plant your own container with a selection of succulents. Alison will demonstrate how she plants a container with suitable plants and then you will have a chance to create your own.

You need to bring your own container, could be a bonsai bowl, tin plate, deep drip tray, biscuit tin, etc. Comprehensive notes, soil, pebbles, and some plants for participants will be provided. However if you have any spare succulents , decorations, stones, etc, please bring them along – this is a great way to share plants and increase your collection.
