About this Event

As the seasons change and we close our gardens it is an excellent opportunity to refocus on plants that can be overwintered and even grown indoors. Join Art Scarpa, one of the founders and past presidents of the Cactus and Succulent Society of Massachusetts, at this fascinating presentation on fun and unusual plants that anyone can grow. This program will highlight many of Art's favorite container plants including cactus, succulents, ferns, palms, miniatures, bulbs, camellias, and jasmines. The presentation will cover the plants’ native habitats and cultural requirements, including temperature, light and water, soil mixes, propagation, and re-potting. During this interactive program Art will focus primarily on indoor plants but will include some cool and unusual plants that can be grown in containers and left outdoors for the winter on decks, patios, breezeways, and unheated porches.Admission is $7.00 ($5.00 for Strawbery Banke Museum members and Herb Society members not affiliated with the NorthEast Seacoast Unit). Pre-registration is required. To register visit: Fun & Unusual Plants
