Spring 2020 Container Planting Workshops!

Making your own basket or planter is fun and easy, and we'll help them and you grow!


Get a jump on spring by joining us for a hands-on workshop. You’ll learn how to create stunning baskets and planters to brighten your deck, porch, balcony or yard, and learn the art of container and plant selection, easy to master planting techniques, and best practices for keeping your creations beautiful for as long as Mother Nature will allow!

Each session will include a brief presentation, an opportunity to select the perfect plants, and time to design your own baskets and planters with our inspired staff. After the workshop, you may leave your creations with us and we’ll care for them in our greenhouse until they are ready to be picked up by you. We only ask that you pick up your beauties and take them to their new homes no later than May 31st, 2020. You may B.Y.O. (bring your own) empty and gently washed containers, or purchase from our fine selection of unique baskets and containers!

The $30 fee includes:

  • Potting mix for up to 3 medium-sized, (about 14″ in diameter) containers
  • Expert instruction on how to creatively design and plant your baskets and planters
  • Personalized plant selection and advice from our staff
  • And the personal care and feeding of your creations in our greenhouses by the Kopke’s Team until Memorial Day weekend! (What?! No more of the “garage shuffle” for me? That’s crazy awesome!)

The total fee for the workshop, the baskets and containers you purchase, and the plants needed to complete your projects will be due on the day of your workshop.

You learn and plant, and together we’ll grow!
