Terrarium Decorating Class

A terrarium is a fun and easy way to incorporate plants into your décor with minimal maintenance.

Create visual interest by layering different sands, stones, and mosses – then add soil & plants – and Viola!

Kid's Club: Frederick Rocks
Aug

Kid's Club: Frederick Rocks

If you haven't heard of Frederick Rocks, then you might be living under a rock! Groups get together and paint one side of a flat rock with whatever image they want, and on the other side they write #FrederickRocks and the Facebook symbol. Then they will scatter them around Frederick and surrounding areas. When someone finds the rock, they post a photo on social media and use the hashtag. Frederick Rocks social media accounts will feature some of the rocks that have made it to far-out places. Earlier this year one of our rocks was found in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!

We will be decorating Mexican Beach Buttons and larger Delaware Valley River Stones with gel markers and paint pens.

Some of the rocks will be distributed throughout the nursery grounds, but each attendee will be encouraged to take several painted rocks with them to distribute as you please.

Air Plants 101 with Guest Speaker, Todd Portner

Air Plants 101 with Guest Speaker, Todd Portner

At 44 years old, Todd had killed every single plant that he ever had. Not because he didn’t try to care for them- he just didn’t have a green thumb. For years he had admired a friend’s plant she had hanging in her kitchen window; an ‘Air Plant’ she called it. He was fascinated with how delicate and simple it was: no roots, no water, no dirt. He began researching them, and eventually bought his first Air Plant. That was in March of 2018- and since then- he has expanded his collection to over 30 plants in 17 different varieties. Some of them have “pups” too! Todd is a lover of mid-century furniture and decor, so air plants are perfect for his home, where the risk of plant damage is unacceptable. He can display them without risk of drips, water marks, or spills. If you love air plants, want to learn how to better care for them, or are looking to expand your collection- please join us Saturday, November 10th at 1:00pm for Todd’s presentation. We will have a wide variety of air plants and accessories available for purchase.
