The Happy Houseplants workshop aims to give an education in houseplants. With so much contradictory information coming from everywhere it can get a bit confusing figuring out what you plants need to thrive (and how to share them)!

 Join us at the shop to get a thorough lesson in houseplant care with a small group of plant enthusiasts.

We'll cover the history of houseplants, what will thrive best in which situations and what might be going wrong with your plants. Learn about different light and water requirements, how and when to pot on and finally we will then guide you through how to propagate different sorts of plants. This is the perfect opportunity to gain a bit of confidence and knowledge with your indoor plants.

You'll get to take away a collection of different plant cuttings to grow for yourself.


Dates:

July Sunday 29th 10am - 11.30am
August Sunday 26th 10am - 11.30am
September Sunday 30th 10am - 11.30am
