Cuttings and Cultivation with Claire Greenhill
Why buy when you can propagate? Join plant guru Claire Greenhill for this special session for the City of Fremantle's 'Glasshouses and Green Futures'.
Claire has curated a special 'greenhouse' for this session based around repurposing and plant gifting, constructed by a Fremantle artist (it's 2m x 2m and oh so cute!) Claire will draw from its contents to teach you the basics of plant cuttings and propagation for common house plants such as devils ivy, ficus, monstera, succulents, and pilea.
We will cover how to choose the right indoor plants, what you need to create the ideal environment for propagation and tips for growing in water, soil and air layering. Perfect for the plant obsessed and those wanting to learn a new skill.
This class is a part of the larger project for '10 Nights in Port', we highly suggest attending as a part of the whole afternoon's activities 12pm - 3pm. The greenhouses will also travel to a number of different community nurseries around Fremantle each with their own satellite events. You can find more information on this here. There will also be a community Plant Swap on this day.
Date and time:
Sunday 14th of July, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

10% off plants at the concept store on the day for session attendees.
