Get your holiday season off to a jolly and naturally beautiful start with this workshop that focuses on one of the favorite plants of the season – the Christmas Cactus. Held on the grounds of the Elizabethan Gardens, this special class will highlight all there is to know about the Christmas Cactus, while providing invaluable instruction on how to grow – and maintain – this pretty staple of the season.

The workshop is held at the Elizabethan Gardens which is well known as one of the prettiest attractions on the Outer Banks, as well as a great spot to pick up a little gardening education through workshops and classes. During this session, students will learn all about these very long-lived plants that are wonderfully easy to grow, propagate, and which can easily flower year after year. With a wealth of tips on this native Central and South American species, visitors will pick up a world of info that will make their upcoming holiday season even brighter. Advanced reservations is required, and with just 12 spots available, the workshop will fill up quickly so visitors should book as early as possible. The cost for this two-hour workshop is $20 for members and $35 for not-yet members.
