Make a Holiday Wreath With Native Plants

· by

Native plants provide more than just great food and habitat for wildlife: they also provide great beauty all year long.

Although many holiday decorations make use of evergreen plants, like boxwoods and spruce, decorators are often surprised to learn that these plants are often not native to Maryland.

10846455_916294111728035_1610651823426860543_nSo, for the second year, we are offering a wreath-making workshop using native plants. The greenery will be native, of course, and we will also show participants how to use winterberry, red-twig dogwood, sumac berries, acorns, sweetgum balls, and many other types of native plant material to make their wreath a true work of art.

These popular two-hour workshops will be led by Terry Westhead, assistant manager of Herring Run Nursery, and are likely to sell out.

Registration is only $40: we’ll provide the materials and instruction, and you’ll make a wreath you can take home.

We are offering four sessions of this workshop so that you can choose the date and time that works best for you.  Each one takes place at our office on Belair Road.

Note: All four sessions are sold out!
