Make and Take Tuesday: Cottage Garden in a Crate

  • Red Wagon Plants 2408 Shelburne Falls Road Hinesburg, VT, 05461 United States (map)
It’s a terrible photo, but this is from 1999 - one of my first front porch gardens….all in crates, and very cottage feeling. Take a trip down memory lane with me, and we will make these fun crates together!

It’s a terrible photo, but this is from 1999 - one of my first front porch gardens….all in crates, and very cottage feeling. Take a trip down memory lane with me, and we will make these fun crates together!

In this workshop, we will be turning an apple crate into a miniature cottage garden complete with trellis, climbing plant, tall and wispy flowers, and billowing fillers and spillers that will transform a corner of your deck, porch, or balcony with a whimsical splash of color and texture. These will be flowers that are great for bouquets and for attracting butterflies and pollinators.

We will provide you with an apple crate - made right in Hinesburg by Clifford Lumber - along with soil, trellis, plants, and instruction.

The greenhouses after hours are a magical place to be. All is quiet, cows are grazing in the distance, and we have wonderful views from our special hidden patio. Bring a friend or two and make this a special evening. 

We will supply light refreshments. If you would like beer or wine, feel free to BYOB.

$75 fee includes all supplies, plants, and instruction.
