Alana Miller will guide you through the creation of your own hypertufa planter at her home in Webster. Alana makes troughs for sale and uses a great many of them in her home landscape. In the first class you will mix and mold the hypertufa. The second day you will unmold your container, discuss curing it and wintering it over, and see how Alana uses these planters in the landscape. Hypertufa troughs are suitable for a wide range of plantings – dwarf conifers, small flowering shrubs, succulents, tiny creepers like the “steppables,” and any plant that appreciates good drainage. Leave out the drainage hole and they are perfect for water gardens. Materials are included. Directions will be emailed before the class. Limit 8.
