Dark & Deadly Plants Workshop

“What a strange and unusual plant?!” Be the envy of your friends and neighbors after you learn the care and feeding of carnivorous plants under the expert guidance of a Master Gardener. Participants will have a hands-on class, learning about these fascinating subjects, as well as how to take cuttings of some dark and sinister looking plants. Everyone will go home with their own botany project, but don’t worry – you don’t have to drain a vein to keep these plants alive. In addition, you will join us on stage at Mr. Mushnik’s Flower shop for a behind-the-scenes look at the puppets that bring Audrey 2 to life.
