Demijohn Terrarium Workshop

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!

We will be hosting this event indoors at the beautiful Sheffield Botanical Gardens in the Dorothy Fox Education Centre which is best accessed via the Thompson Road Entrance just off Ecclesall Road. The Education Centre can be found near the public toilets and noticeboard.

Yes, if you are unable to attend tickets can be used by someone else. Please contact us directly if you are unable to make it on the day.

How to I get my terrarium home?

They are built to be easily transported by using the finger holes at the top of the jar, however if you have a strong tote bag you can bring along this will help.
