Bullington Gardens is gearing up for its 2021 Spring Speaker Series, offering both virtual and hybrid classes. Look for the same high quality educational programming as offered in past years.
The Series kicks off with the Terrarium Workshop on Thursday, January 21, in the warmth of Bullington’s greenhouse. Mary Martin will lead a small group, maximum of four, in creating individual terrariums to take home. All necessary materials for the project are provided. Social distancing protocols are in place.
The Fridays in February Series starts on February 5 with Best Practices in Pruning led by John Murphy, Bullington’s Director of Education. Other workshops in the series include February 19’s Masses of Grasses, in which Nancy Duffy and Shannon Currey explore the latest in ornamental grasses. On February 26, Charlotte-based designer Jay Sifford presents his photography program on inspirational garden design and implementation.
March’s classes focus on edibles including growing vegetables and blueberries.
“We can all get excited for warmer weather, our hands in the soil, and an education based on proven and new horticultural techniques,” says Director of Education John Murphy. Our mission at Bullington is to connect with the natural world through science-based education and to demonstrate the beauty and value of plants. Now more than ever, people are getting back to their gardens and enjoying the grounds of Bullington. We are happy to offer both.”
