Longwood’s Waterlily Display attracts thousands of summer visitors who admire the tranquility and beauty of the unusual plants.

Join our waterlily experts to learn how to grow these lovely specimens at home. The class will include discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as you divide and repot surplus plants from Longwood’s collection to take home for your new water garden. The class will end with a walk around the Waterlily Display and a discussion of favorable conditions for growing these amazing specimens.

Students receive water-loving plants, special medium, and a container to create their own miniature water garden.  Please be prepared to transport a large container, dress for a hands-on experience, and bring gardening gloves if you care to use them.
