If you dream of having your own little garden but lack the space to do so, then we might have the solution for you. Terrariums are a great way of delving into the world of gardening in miniature form - come learn how to make your own in this fun and hands-on workshop, suitable for all ages and levels.
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, Ivy/Fern 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.
A man named Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward is often credited with inventing the terrarium. Back in the early 1800s, he placed an insect chrysalis along with some mould inside a glass bottle, with the aim of watching the insect emerge from the chrysalis. Instead, he observed seedlings and sprouts blooming from the bottle. Nathaniel came to the conclusion that the glass bottle created a protected sealed environment in which plants could thrive. And thus, the science of terrariums was born!
