Out of an abundance of concern for the well being of our guests and community, and in keeping with the CDC’s guidance to practice social distancing, we are cancelling all assembled group activities and events from March 13 through April 22, which includes all classes originally scheduled during that time. Ticket buyers will be contacted with information about receiving a refund.

Dive into the world of exotic and tropical plants, with their colorful foliage and fragrant flowers. Concentrate on identification, culture, growth patterns, and management in the interior and exterior landscape. Discuss appropriate overwintering locations. The use of these plants provides the opportunity to add color, texture, movement, and seasonal excitement to interiors throughout the year and to containers and garden beds in the warm season for home, garden, institutional, or commercial applications.
