Do you love plants, but find it difficult to keep them alive or even green? Don’t be ashamed! And it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy plants anymore either, because everything can be learned! There are really nice and fun houseplant care workshops, where you can develop your own green fingers. We listed a couple of our favorites!
At Botany you can attend The Happy Houseplants workshop. It covers the history of houseplants, what will thrive best in which situation and why some houseplants are hard to find. You will learn about different light and water requirements, and how and when to pot on. They will also guide you through how to propagate different sorts of plants.
Costs: £45. This includes a plant to take home, some cuttings that you can grow yourselves, and they will answer any questions you have about your plants.
Chelsea Physic Garden
Is a potato a root? How do fruits form? What exactly is photosynthesis? If you are interested in the answers to these questions, the Botany for Gardeners day course could be for you. It offers complete beginners a relaxed introduction to the world of botany!
Costs: £88. This is including lunch, materials and refreshments.
London Terrarium is dedicated to passing on what they have learned through their comprehensive workshops and believe that the terrarium is the perfect way to engage with horticulture in a dense urban environment. During this workshop, you will learn how a terrarium works, how these self-contained ecosystems survive so well on their own, and how to look after them.
Costs: £65. This includes a jar and tools, a bag to pop your terrarium in, a care guide, and one glass of wine.
