Spring Plant FunShops underway

— It may be too cold to start your Spring planting, but that doesn’t prevent you from designing your hanging baskets or container gardens now. Spring Plant FunShops begin at Oliver Paine Greenhouses on March 24. These FunShops (a workshop without the work) will teach you how to design beautiful hanging baskets and container gardens. Oliver Paine Greenhouses will even care for your hanging basket and container garden until it’s safe for them to go outside.

Everything you need for your FunShop creation is included: the plants, soil, fertilizer and the Oliver Paine secrets of success. FunShops are held on Saturday mornings or Wednesday evenings. They generally are 1 to 1.5 hours, and require registration (visit oliverpainegreenhouses.com or call 592-2773).

The first set of FunShops will include Hanging Basket Design. This FunShop will be offered at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 24, and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 28. Whether your taste is old fashioned and cottage-like or modern and sleek, you’ll be able to create the look you want for your space.

The second set of FunShops will include Container Garden Design. This FunShop will be offered at 10 a.m. Saturday March 31, or at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 25. You’ll have the ability to choose the flowers you like, and be guided by the design advice to select flowers that will look best together and will thrive, based on the amount of sun/shade they’ll receive. Every container has its own unique style.

FunShops will continue throughout April, May and June at Oliver Paine Greenhouses, and include Terrariums, Hypertufa Containers, Bubbling Beauty Water Feature and Veggie Gardens. For more information and to register for a FunShop, visit oliverpainegreenhouses.com or call 592-2773.
