Join us to learn how to build your own Demijohn Terrarium at Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
Learn the history of Terrariums, how to care for them and the ideal plants to fill them with. You will be provided with everything you need to create your own little ecosystem, we will have a range of plants for you to choose from including Fittonia,Ficus and Moss as well as a large sealable glass jar. We will guide you through creating your own terrarium which will be all yours to take home at the end of the session. This is a great individual or group experience for anyone who wants to learn some new indoor gardening skills.
You will leave with a care guide for your terrarium as well as all you need to know about how to make more terrariums as we know they can be quite addictive!
