Almost Ancient Pots

February 26, 2015

More than 17 years ago, I stumbled upon something new while looking for a class for c.e.u.'s for my horticulture certificate. The time fit my schedule, and off I went to Leu Gardens in Orlando, Florida to take a class in something called Hypertufa.

By the end of the day, I was hooked. I held my first workshop the following year, and soon started making pots for retail sale through local festivals. In 2009, the circle was complete as I returned to Leu to teach.

I'm still hooked on Hypertufa, and I think you will be, too. My horticulture certificate has expired, since my time is spent making pots. The pots are rustic and natural, and they provide a perfect growing environment for all your plants.

Look for a class at your local botanical garden or come to Florida and join one of my workshops. The joy of Florida is that I work and teach outside year round. 

Iif you want to feel good about your gardening efforts, visit mine - always in transition, never finished and certainly never perfect. 

Spring is about to spring in North Florida. We haven't really had a Winter this year, so there should be just one more cold snap.  My peach trees are blooming and the robins have just arrived on their way home, so all is well and on nature's schedule.

New shows in new places in 2015!  New ideas and more new ideas.

Jump in - try hypertufa - make a mess!

See you soon,

Melanie

 Thanks to new customers and friends this past weekend in Savannah.  The Market at 3 Westridge was a great success.  I'll be back in the area to deliver special orders around the 20th or 25th of March, so if you want to order, please contact me by the end of February.


My next Orlando workshop, 2/28, is full. Check the workshop or the links page to reach Leu about the May 16th class.

I love to make special pieces just for you, but remember, it's not an instant process. It takes me at least 30 days to order tiles and make a planter. Custom molds also add to the time needed.

I will meet you at a show for delivery, or, if I am going to be in your area, I will gladly deliver.  I do not ship due to the weight.  The shipping costs more than the planter.
