Our winter series of classes and workshops is continuing with two new additions to the line up. Registration is now open for both Grafting Japanese Maples 101 and Sedum-Roofed Birdhouses and Feeders. If you've been wanting to learn some new skills, then these are the workshops for you.
Grafting Japanese Maples 101
If you have ever wanted to learn the craft of grafting, we have a treat for you. Our expert, Lewis Williford, is an industry leader in the "art and science" of grafting Japanese Maples. He started his nursery in 1979 and grows 125 cultivars of this beautiful tree. His enthusiasm is infectious, and the knowledge you will gain from this workshop will set you on a course of successful grafting on your own for years to come.
The workshop is Thursday, Feb.23rd 6-8pm and the cost is only $50.00 You will take home a Weeping Japanese Maple you have grafted yourself and the knowledge to venture in your own garden to try it again!
Lewis will also showcase some amazing varieties of Japanese Maples available in limited quantities for purchase.
Sedum-Roofed Birdhouses or Feeders
Sedum-Roofed Birdhouses and Feeders are the latest trend in garden art. They are functional as well as beautiful. Join us Thursday, Mar. 1st. 6-8pm, or Sunday, Mar. 4th 3-5pm to create your one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Once you make one you will be looking for other "roofs", like Fido's house to cover with this low-maintenance, low-water plant!
Registration is $65.00 and we provide a choice of either a locally handcrafted western cedar birdhouse or birdfeeder, soil, and sedum plants. This is a great class for kids too.
Registration for both workshops is available in-store or by giving us at call at 919-460-7747. We look forward to seeing you!
