Living Arrangements | Virtual class with Kit Option

April 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Flower arrangements are a beautiful way to bring color and life into your home, but cut flowers often fade quickly. The secret to an arrangement with lasting color? Bulbs! In this class, Brent and Becky Heath of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs will teach participants how to create beautiful, long-lasting arrangements with live bulbs. The class will cover the particulars on which bulb cultivars are more suited for pot culture and how to plant them. Brent and Becky will demonstrate the most innovative methods of creating the forced container, the window box liner, the layered patio planter or individually potted bulbs. 

You can participate in this virtual class by viewing it on its own, or you can add a DIY kit to make a living arrangement of bulbs in your own home! Kits will need to be picked up at the Huntsville Botanical Garden and will not be mailed.

Kits include a 12” container filled with soil and 5 layers of bulbs in vibrant yellow, red, and orange.

In order to receive a kit, please register no later than March 20, 2022.
