String gardening is a term that has become attached to a style of Japanese bonsai known as Kokedama, which literally means "moss ball" in English. To create these "moss balls," a plant is taken out of its pot, most of its soiled removed, and is inserted into a ball of soil held together with moss and string. They are then hung from decorative string. Learn the history of these interesting plantings, the exact process of making a string garden, and the specific care instructions. You'll have the opportunity to make your own moss ball in this hands-on session.
Our own librarian and Master Gardener will be teaching this class!
(Class limit of 15 participants. No registration fee.)
