Date(s) - Sunday, Sep 28, 2014
This workshop will take place at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28 at Lockwood’s.
Becky Watts, CNLP, garden consultant at Lockwood’s, will show you how to mount the fern atop a base made from wood reclaimed from Lockwood’s greenhouse benches from the 1940s. You can hang the finished piece on a wall.
The staghorn fern has fronds that look like the horns of a staghorn deer. It’s an epiphytic plant or air plant. Epiphytic plants usually grow on another plant such as a tree and derive their moisture and nutrients from the air, rain and debris accumulating around it.
Please take a pair of gloves and wire cutters. You will leave with one mounted staghorn fern on wood along with a sheet on how to care for your plant.
The class is limited to 20 people and the cost $30 per person.
