What you'll learn in this gardening class:

Making a hyper-tufa planter is like making mud pies: messy and fun! Use peat moss, perlite, cement, and water to create a lightweight container that mimics the look of an old stone English watering trough. 

Hyper-tufa planters are the perfect vessels for highlighting small plants, including herbs and cacti. Nick Gershberg shares his secrets about the best materials to use and the most innovative planting ideas.

Bring home your own DIY planter.

Note:
All the needed materials are included and provided to the students.

Question from BootsyB
Hi! I would like to attend this class, but I imagine bringing home a hypertufa planter on the bus will be difficult. Could I leave mine there one day, so that my husband can meet me with the car and we can pick it up on Sunday? Thank you, Laura
Answer from Jason G. Verified Educator
Hi Laura, You're welcome to leave your planter overnight until Sunday for pick-up. Just be sure to confirm Sunday hours with the Registration Office when you're in on Saturday. ~Jason

Hyper-Tufa Planter
Reviewed by Marylena M. on 6/17/2017
Very good class, hands on and entertaining. Somehow the description was a bit misleading, made me believe I would come back with a container already planted. But I got my plant as a gift at least!
