Cancelled: Herb Spirals [OFFSITE]
April 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$55.00
Herb spirals add instant architecture to your landscape that looks good year around. Herb spirals are versatile and can be tailored to fit any space from an urban courtyard to an entire yard. The spiral is built like a snail shell, with stone spiraling up that captures the sun and stores heat for an extended growing season. A cornucopia of herbs can be grown in the spiral thanks to all the microclimates created through elevation and cardinal directions. Having one right outside the kitchen window will inspire fantastic meals from your edible landscape! Join us in building one from scratch and learn to create your own just in time for this growing season.
