Family Workshop: Blooming Bulb Botany

  • Friday, November 13, 6-7pm
  • The Garden Classroom
  • M $8; NM $10
  • Best for ages 6 to 12
  • Register by Tuesday, November 10

Learn all about bulbs as we dissect these energy-packed plants. We’ll dissect and compare different types of bulbs, some from the kitchen, some from the garden, and learn the parts of a bulb. Then we’ll finish by potting up our own bulbs to take home, easily care for, and enjoy next spring. This is a great class for families registered for the Spring Smiles Bulb Kit so they can soak in all the knowledge needed for spring blooms.
