Tuesday Evening classes 7pm at The Kiosk
Are you new to growing indoor plants?
These concise evening classes provide a general understanding of houseplant health and maintenance with the opportunity to learn more in depth techniques including propagation and the lost art of macramé. Pick and mix which sessions to come along to.
- Macramé Plant Hanger: 10 August [this class will run until 9.30pm to accommodate the extra time needed to make the hangers]
In this beginner class you will learn how to make two hangers for trailing plants. One basic design to get you into the swing of it before exploring different knots to allow you to create your own individual design. With handouts and new found skills you will be able to create even more at home. Participants who complete this class can move on to the intermediate Macramé class which makes a Wall Hanging Plant Holder.
- General Indoor Plant Maintenance: New dates coming in September
Understand how to keep your plants healthy and happy. Explore different indoor plant species and their growing medium, light, temperature, water and feeding needs. Learn to identify common pests and diseases and how to combat them.
- Beginners Propagation: New dates coming in September
Addicted to indoor plants, but don’t have the budget for more plant babies? Learn to propagate and extend your collection for free. From how to sow seeds correctly to taking cuttings, all will be revealed.
Most of the sessions can be booked right up until the day although Propagation is usually very popular
