Sunday, April 22 12pm – 2pm – RSVP by April 18

Cost: $20 for first planter + cost of flowers to fill planter (+$5 for each additional planter)

What to Bring: You are welcome to bring your own pot(s). We will also have pots available for purchase.

What to Wear: On a sunny day, our greenhouse can get pretty warm SO dress in layers & wear functional & comfortable shoes (tennis shoes, rain boots). Gardening gloves will be provided, but you're welcome to bring your own!

Join us for a fun & interactive 2-hour workshop where you will learn to create a beautiful planter to accent your home! At this workshop, Mill Creek Gardens’ staff will offer great choices for sun & shade areas and share tips on how to keep your flowers blooming through fall. You will also learn about new flower varieties, the latest trends, & how to integrate them into your planter. You are welcome to bring your own pot and pots will also be available for purchase. The commercial grade slow-release fertilizer & pesticide (both included in cost of the workshop) will give your planter the jump-start & protection it needs to thrive through the season!

The cost of the workshop includes potting soil, slow-release fertilizer, pesticide, storage, care until warmer weather, expert instruction, & beverages. We recommend planter pick-up around Memorial Day – you’ll be amazed to see your beautiful, full planters! The cost of the workshop & plants will be due on the day of the workshop.

Our workshops fill up - sign up early! Please RSVP by the above date to danielle.millcreekgardens@gmail.com. Simply clicking that you are "going" on this facebook event is not considered an official RSVP - be sure to email or call! :)
