About the event
Droopy, yellow leaves? Overwatered or underwatered? If you feel that your houseplants crave a little more love but are confused about what they need, this is the workshop for you.
In the first part of this workshop you'll learn about your plant's basic needs, how to choose the right spot for it, how to water and feed it, and how to keep it happy and thriving.
In the second part of the workshop you'll have a chance to practise some of the skills, tips and tricks you have learnt in the first half - from potting and repotting, to watering, taking cuttings, diving and pruning. There will also be a plant clinic - an opportunity for you to bring in your own houseplants for advice. At the end you will go home with a new young plant that you have cut or divided to take home and look after with your newly-acquired know-how.
