This Autumn: Make your own terrarium workshops

Learn something new and something green, this autumn! Capital Gardens are hosting terrarium workshops, the perfect way to unwind from a busy week and get your hands dirty. Workshops include a high quality range of plants and materials to choose from 

Capital Gardens, the natural place for London’s gardeners, provides expert advice on a wide range of plants and sustainable gardening techniques.

Experts from London Terrariums will teach the workshops. Participants get the chance to learn how a terrarium works, how the beautiful self-contained ecosystems survive, how to create their own and how to care for them.

The workshops will start with a short introduction explaining the history and science that goes into building a terrarium, from the different plants used to why activated charcoal has become so essential. Participants will be provided with the different elements and taught how to build their own.

The ticket price includes all the highest quality materials, supplied by Capital Garden’s and London Terrariums – a glass jar, various fittonia, ivy and a variety of pebbles and moss.

Participants will leave the workshop with their own terrarium, a special bag to carry it in, a care guide, and a Capital Gardens privilege card with £5 credit on it.
