Fall Holiday Arrangement

Join Master Gardener Phyllis Mihalik to make your very own fall holiday container arrangement. Need something on the porch to welcome guests during the holidays, a festive touch on the hearth, jazz up the dining room for Thanksgiving or maybe a hostess gift? You'll turn a classic 10-12" flower pot into a beautiful fall holiday decoration. Phyllis has sweet annie, sedum, dried grasses, berries, curly willow, hydrangea, astilbe, tansy, bittersweet and more to work with. Then you'll top off your creation with a gorgeous florist bow.

So join us for this craft from the garden and bring a friend to share the fun.
