Originally known as the Wardian case, this form of plant display has been around since the mid-1800s and is a wonderful way to display your plant babies.

Facilitated by 'The Plant Whisperer', these are some of their most popular workshops, and they've been teaching them for over 7 years. Come and join us this Plastic Free July, just BYO your own Terrarium vessel!

You’ll learn all about how these lovely miniature gardens came to be, the art of Terrarium creation, the ‘three steps of Terrarium building’ and the ‘three golden rules of Terrarium success’. You’ll learn everything you need to know to ensure your miniature garden thrives and continues bringing you proud plant parental joy for years to come!

Please BYO terrarium vessel, and everything else will be provided:

  • Stones and rocks
  • Soil and moss
  • Selection of plants
  • Instruction booklet to take home

(We will have some glass terrarium vessels available in case you forget to bring one)
