Just a reminder of some of the upcoming classes here at Fernwood Nursery. Our next hypertufa class is scheduled for Saturday, July 26th from 10:00 – 12:00. We had a grand time building hypertufa vessels back in June. We gathered around the teardrop trailer while enjoying homemade scones and tea, while Rick gave a brief introduction on hypertufa. Next we got busy building our vessels. Everyone went home with their own stone-like creation to plant with their favorite miniatures. Those interested in our hypertufa class should call or email us as soon as possible. (What’s hypertufa?…check out this post to find out). We still have a few spots left and preregistration is required. For more details, check out our Classes page. And of course, tea and scones will be served for your enjoyment.
Also, an adult Fairy Garden workshop will be offered Friday, August 1st from 10:00-12:00. Liza Gardner Walsh, author of Fairy House Handbook and Fairy Garden Handbook, will be joining us here at Fernwood Nursery to talk about the history of fairy gardens and lead a workshop building miniature fairy ‘accessories’. Come join Liza here in the gardens at Fernwood to make your own tiny trellis, garden bench, or miniature arbor to take home and put in your own fairy garden. Tea and lavender shortbread cookies will be served in the garden. For more information, visit our Classes page. Again, space is limited and preregistration is required. Contact us for more information. Hope to see you in the garden!
