Floral guru Betsy Williams is back at the Stevens-Coolidge Place this spring, offering her expertise on all things garden in this hands-on workshop where participants will plant a spring garden that can be grown indoors or enjoyed outside your door on nice days. You’ll fill an attractive container with colorful spring-flowering plants: cyclamen, tulips, primroses, daffodils, violas or pansies accented with lacy ferns, trailing ivies and green moss. Your portable spring garden will look equally charming on a table, windowsill or doorstep. When summer arrives, simply plant the bulbs in your garden and move the violas, ferns and ivies to a dampish, shady spot to enjoy all season long.
Instructor, Betsy Williams teaches, lectures and writes about living with herbs and flowers. A gardener and herb grower since 1972, Betsy trained as a florist in Boston and England. She combines her floral and gardening skills with an extensive knowledge of history, plant lore and seasonal celebrations. Betsy is the author of several books on the uses and stories of herbs and flowers. She has appeared on the Discovery Channel and greater Boston cable stations as well as local and national radio talk shows. Betsy lectures and teaches locally and nationally.
This workshop takes place during our annual Tulip Festival. Participants are encouraged to hop on a garden tour or play a little bocce once the class is complete. And of course, no visit would be complete without a trip to the greenhouse to see what seasonal goodies are for sale to add to your garden at home.
