MEXICO, NY – On May 16 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. there will be a workshop on ‘Making a Living Wreath.’
This workshop will teach participants about horticulture, and the uses of plants in topiary artistic design.
This workshop will also teach about plant requirements (soil, water, and air).
The different contrast between types of plants, and the cost effectiveness of making your own as opposed to purchasing one.
Prices of purchased wreaths can run from $150 to $250.
Wreaths have been a favorite form of decoration, and recently we’ve adopted the wreath as a traditional symbol of welcome during the holidays.
Today they are no longer just for the winter season, but can be a beautiful living wreath made up of hens and chickens and other succulents that will last throughout the year with a little care.
This is being held at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Oswego County Office 3288 Main St.
The cost is $25.
Pre-registration is required by May 12.
For more information, call 963-7286 Ext. 201.
Class size is limited to 20 people.
The instructor will be Master Gardener Jan Smith.
