Are you ever confused when you get to the garden shop and can’t decide on which bag of plant media is the right one to buy? Or went home with your new plants only to have them suddenly a short time later?  Participants will get to see, feel and smell, the different types of plant media and compare their similarities, and identify the pros and cons of some of the most popular bagged-to-go garden potting and in-ground mixes.   


Advanced registration is required. Registration opens on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, and closes at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 24, 2020, or when all spaces are filled. Call (808) 748-5315 or email workshops@hbws.org to register.
