Now that spring has started and it’s sunny outside, it’s time to dust off your green fingers and roll up your sleeves! Can you use some tips and tricks in the field of plant care? Then following a planting workshop might be a nice idea. These are organised by various plant stores in London. We will list a number of nice plant workshops in the spring of 2019.
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.
