Houseplants: The New Garden Obsession Bringing Nature Indoors

Date: Friday, October 22
Time:  3:00 pm

Are you ready to buy a houseplant but are unsure if you have a “green thumb”? Are you afraid you won’t be able to keep it alive? Everyone can cultivate a green thumb by paying attention to what their plants are telling them. In this seminar, you will learn the proper care of your plants including watering, grooming, light requirements, and more. With more people spending more time at home and inside, we all need a little green in our lives — or maybe a whole lot of green!

Location: All Seminars are FREE with your admission and will be held in the Pat O’Brian Hall
