Everything Succulent!!!

If you are interested in growing succulents than this is the class for you.

This class covers indoor succulents, although we may briefly stray to perennials. Everyone in class will leave with a 2.5” potted succulent. Additionally, Hannah will open her greenhouse for a special early preview and give you first dibs on the new arrangements for 2019.

Hypertufa Making

Join Hannah Todd, owner of Brick House Succulents, with special guest, Michael Smith (Hannah’s husband) to learn how to make a hypertufa pot. You will come out of this class with at least one pot, but probably more like two or three… time permitting. There will be plenty of chances to get your hands dirty in this class so please bring gloves. If you simply want to sit back and “enjoy the show” then Mike and Hannah are happy to make a pot for you.

Because hypertufas take a couple of weeks to “cure” we encourage participants to come back for a second class about a month later where Hannah will talk about plant design and lead you through planting your new hypertufa. If you do not plan to attend the design class, you can pick up your hypertufa pot during our regular business hours a couple of weeks after the class.

When: June 15th 10am to 12pm

Cost: $35

Plant Design:

When: July 13th 10am to 11am

Succulent Pumpkins!!!

I don’t know about you, but I love fall and what could be better than combining pumpkins and succulents??? I may even have to bring chocolate to this class so that we may all enter Nirvana for a moment! If you haven’t guessed, this will be a class on how to plant succulents right on top of a pumpkin for a lovely and unique fall arrangement. These arrangements will last through the fall and make wonderful place settings for any holiday table. We will use small pumpkins in class but any size works well. This class would be great for children, 8 years old and up, as the process is quite simple but the outcome always stunning.

When: October 12th 10am to 11am

Cost: $15 for gourd size; $25 for a pie pumpkin
