Hypertufa container workshop at Botanical Gardens

Date(s) - Saturday, May 11, 2019
9:00 am


The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will host two hypertufa container workshops at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 at the Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Ave., Buffalo.

The cost is $25 for Botanical Gardens members and $30 for the general public.

Hypertufas are very popular in the gardening scene. They are planters made from aggregates bonded together using Portland cement and can be molded into any shape or size. They are unique planting containers that are porous and a great environment for plant growth. In these workshops, participants will create their own hypertufa from peat moss, Portland cement and perlite.

This is a messy workshop and organizers ask participants to wear appropriate clothing. Participants must also bring one container to mold their hypertufa, no larger than 12 inches by 16 inches. All materials to make the planter will be provided.

Registration is available online.
