In response to COVID-19, Franklin Park Conservatory will be closed to the public for three weeks starting Friday, March 13. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our top priority, and this decision was made in alignment with official health and government recommendations. Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact the Conservatory for details.

Hardy Houseplants

This is an educational and hands-on class led by Conservatory Educator, Christie Nohle. Learn about all of the hardy houseplants ideal for the “black thumb” gardener. Topics discussed will include plant and container selection, plant requirements, soils and fertilizers. Participants will choose a houseplant and transplant it into a terra cotta pot to take home.

This class is just in time to get the knowledge you need to select the perfect plants at the Retired Plant Sale on September 19th at the Conservatory from 8am-12pm.

All materials are included.
