Lockwood's Greenhouses


A staghorn fern mounted on a rustic plaque is one of the intriguing floral crafts you can make in the series of classes to be held this fall at Lockwood’s Greenhouses, 4484 Clark St., Hamburg.

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.
