Instructor:  Matt Tetreault

Join Conservatory Horticulturist Matt Tetreault and learn how to create a beautiful forced bulb display to bring home with you for an early taste of spring.  In this workshop you will learn the basics of forcing bulbs, how to layer different bulbs in a pot to make a beautiful display, and how to care for your bulbs while in their dormant period.  In this workshop we will layer a mix of Daffodil, Tulip, Hyacinth, and Grape Hyacinth in an 8” pot to take home.
