Succulent container garden class is set

Print Article

Learn how to design and create a “mini garden” using succulents during this “Make and Take Succulents” class on Thursday, June 14, at the WSU/Pend Oreille County Extension Office, 227A S. Garden Ave., in Newport. The class will take place from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Class participants will learn about the different types of succulents, choosing the right varieties, suggestions for containers, design elements, propagating, transplanting, and care for these popular plants. The class, taught by Master Gardener Vicki Green, will then go outside to the greenhouse for hands-on experience designing and creating individual succulent planters to take home.

The fee for the class is $10 per person and will provide each participant with two quarts of soil, 10-20 plants, and any other necessary supplies. Participants should bring their own small plant containers. If you need additional soil or do not have a container, some will be available for purchase at the class.

All funds raised from the class will be used by the local Master Gardener Foundation to cover costs for materials and to help provide gardening education programs to the community. Please register early because class size is limited.

Participants should wear appropriate clothing, including sturdy, closed-toe shoes, for working outdoors with soil and bring gardening gloves. Bring a lawn chair if you require seating while working in the greenhouse.

Register by calling the WSU/Pend Oreille County Extension Office at 1-509-447-2401 to provide contact information should the class schedule change and ensure adequate materials for all participants will be available.
