3 Reasons You Need to Learn Succulent Gardening
Now that we’re shrugging off our puffer coats and saying so long to our wooly scarves, all we’ve got on our minds is GREEN. Our Succulent Gardening Online Class ($19) is taught by La Fleur Kitchen Creative Director and Botanical Designer Cherie Marquez, and guys, we think it’s the perfect skill to learn this spring. Need more convincing? Scroll on for three reasons why you should take this online class this weekend.
1. LEARN A NEW SKILL YOU’LL LOVE
Take an hour over the weekend and learn succulent gardening with our online class. In under 35 minutes, you’ll learn how to prep your home garden, choose and care for succulents and design a mini succulent garden box to display in your home.
2. START PRACTICING FOR SPRING GARDENING
Spring is just around the corner, which means you have to start prepping your green thumb now. Get started with succulents, which are super easy to maintain. Plus, once Cherie teaches you how to pick out and care for succulents, you can move on to bigger houseplants, and even try your hand at an herb and vegetable garden.
3. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN WITH SUCCULENTS
Fight off those winter blues by bringing a little greenery into your home. Cherie will teach you how to create a mini wooden garden box that’s the perfect abode for your new baby succulent. Plus, succulents help brighten up your space (and your mood!).
