089) Cultivating a Garden Inside Your Home

Create an attractive and healthy home or office by understanding the unique needs of houseplants. Participants analyze their indoor space (light, heat, humidity) and consider plants that can thrive under these environmental conditions. The instructor describes how to choose a container and soil medium, and demonstrates how to pot up, water and propagate several different plants. The practice of moving plants outside for summer vacation is explained. Participants are encouraged to share their successes, challenges, and decorating schemes with houseplants. The instructor will provide handouts and a list of suggested resources.
