Seed Collecting Basics

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday January 28

10:00 AM  –  11:30 AM



March brings a riot of color and fragrance to Descanso, when tulips, pansies, foxgloves, primrose,lilacs and flowering cherries come into bloom. But planning for the spring flower garden starts well in advance of bloom time. We will tour the gardens and explore what goes into preparing for the spring show. Afterward we will gather at the nursery and create a spring inspired display pot to take home.


All materials are included in the price. Students are welcome to bring their own gardening gloves. Class takes place outdoors.
