HYPERTUFA WORKSHOP at Reynolda Gardens,
with Cortland Snyder, Farmstead Nursery
Tuesday, November 5
7 p.m.
$50; $40 for Friends of Reynolda Gardens, Wake Forest University faculty, staff, and students.
Space is limited
Make beautiful garden containers that will last for years by creating containers made from hypertufa. Hypertufa is intended as a manufactured substitute for natural tufa, which is a slowly precipitated limestone rock; because it is very porous it is a very favorable vessel for plant growth. Containers made from hypertufa are wonderful for displaying rock-garden plants or succulents.
