  • BUILD A BUG HOTEL

    BOOK

    Welcome beneficial bugs by putting up a bug hotel in your garden. Bug hotels offer a place for lacewings, ladybugs, solitary bees, and other good bugs to rest and nest. Since their hotel is right near the garden, you have pollinators and pest controllers right on the premises. Make a bug hotel from a pine box filled with natural elements like bamboo, bark, pods, and dried flowers. Available as hands-on workshop only. Material

  • THEME GARDENS

    Looking for a different route to garden design? Consider creating a garden based on a theme. Choose plants based on color, container type, or seasonal blooming. What about a historical period, literary mention or your family heritage? There are plants to accommodate any theme, from Shakespeare to the alphabet. Using a theme helps give your green space a whole new layer of meaning.
