reservations required class fee: $49

a front porch or entryway. Doing it yourself lets you get your
hands in the soil and gain confidence to do other baskets
on your own! In this class, basket designer Laura Campbell
will teach you how to plant a hanging basket that will bloom
throughout the summer. Your choice of a cedar or wire basket and
pre-selected plants with a range of color, texture, height and growth
habit (upright or trailing), will be set up behind the Potting Shed
along with soil and fertilizer; everything you need for a colorful
hanging basket that will bloom from Spring to Fall.
