Make and Take Tuesday: Shade Loving Hanging Basket

  • Red Wagon Plants 2408 Shelburne Falls Road Hinesburg, VT, 05461 United States (map)

In this class, we will focus on making a hanging basket to hang in a shady area. Learn all about the right plants to grow and hang under a roof, on the north side of the house, or in any other location the sun doesn’t shine. We will have lots of plants for you to combine in a 14” coconut fiber basket.

We will encourage you to branch out and use perennials, annuals, foliage plants, and even edible plants as part of your unique creation. Shade hanging baskets can bring a porch to life or add a little sparkle to that dark entryway on the north side of the house.

The greenhouses after hours are a magical place to be. All is quiet, cows are grazing in the distance, and we have wonderful views on 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.

$50 fee includes hanging fiber pot with black metal hanger, soil, and enough plants to fill the hanging pot.
