Almost Ancient Pots
March 23, 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 Northeast Florida. My peach trees are blooming and the robins have just arrived on their way home in the north, so all is well and on nature's schedule. You will find me in the garage making pots - trying to keep up with my classics while adding some new ideas. With hubby help, I'm making my own tiles from resin, rock & copper. It's great fun, and you never know what will come next.
New shows in new places in 2015! New ideas and more new ideas.
Jump in - try hypertufa - make a mess!
See you soon,
