Birdcage Succulent Planter (150-05-17-18)
Thursday, May 17, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Theresa Mieseler, Mieseler, Herb Grower and Consultant, Shady Acres Herb Farm
We’re obsessed with succulents! They require little water and can be planted almost anywhere. With little more than succulents, a birdcage (old or new), sphagnum moss and soil, you can add a unique, whimsical splash of greenery to your garden. Class will include an overview of succulents, proper care and maintenance, and then enjoy filling your birdcage with delightful succulents selected by Theresa. Take your completed birdcage home to hang outdoors in your garden or on your patio. You can even keep the door open and watch the black capped chickadees perch on it! Bring your own birdcage to class, preferably one that opens from the top, measuring 14” or less in height and 10” in diameter. Birdcages can be found in vintage shops, garage sales, on Amazon.com, eBay, Craigslist, orientaltrading.com, Michaels stores (call first to check) and Michaels.com, homedepot.com, to name a few. All supplies are provided except the birdcage.
BRING TO CLASS: your birdcage, pruning shears and optional gardening gloves.
