Plant a flowering spring garden for your table! Fill an attractive container with colorful spring-flowering plants: cyclamen, tulips, primroses, daffodils, violas or pansies accented with lacy ferns, trailing ivies and green moss. Your portable spring garden will be a delightful centerpiece on your dining table or a sunny table on your deck or patio. When summer arrives, plant the bulbs in your garden and move the violas, ferns and ivies to a dampish, shady spot to enjoy all summer. Please be sure to bring floral scissors to class.

Presenter: Louesa Roebuck, co-author of Foraged Flora

A gorgeously photographed new take on flower arranging using local and foraged plants and flowers to create beautiful arrangements, with ideas and inspiration for the whole year. Roadside fennel, flowering fruit trees, garden roses, tiny violets; ingredients both common and unusual, humble and showy, Foraged Flora is a new vision for flowers and arranging. It encourages you to train your eye to the beauty that surrounds you, attune your senses to the seasonality and locality of flowers and plants, and to embrace the beauty in each stage of life, from first bud to withering seedpod.

Instructor: Tina Bemis

Some people never grow up, and thats a good thing. While we no longer play with doll houses or G.I. Joes, our urge to create a miniature-scale, alternate world where we can escape remains. Join Tina, from Bemis Farms Nursery in Spencer, to create your choice of a Fairy Wagon or Hobbit House. You will get a wooden crate and either one or four wooden circles (to transform your crate into a wagon or to use as a Hobbit House door). Then the real fun begins! Plant it up with a huge assortment of miniature plants like creeping thymes, sedums, Irish and Scotch moss and other perennial rock garden plants to landscape your garden. There are lots of nooks and crannies to fill on the top as well as the sides of the crate. Then add colored or natural stones for pathways and ponds. One miniature accessory is included (like a fairy or frog) to begin creating your own, personal story, and more will be available for purchase.
