Join the experts at Tula for a Plant Revival and Care workshop. We’ll demonstrate and discuss best plant care practices, as well as pruning and propagation tactics to keep your indoor oasis green and growing.
We’re inviting each participant to bring a plant from home that may be suffering and we’ll talk through the problem and how to revive your little guy. Alternatively you can bring photos of your sick plants or just join us for a hands-on discussion of plant care.
We’ll take you through the best plant care tactics, from the roots to the tips, addressing soil composition, light and water needs, how and when to approach pruning and repotting, pest and disease identification and management, and how to propagate your plants. If you’ve brought a plant from home we’ll then provide you with a diagnosis of your plant’s health and a tailored solution to avoid future issues.
You’ll leave with a whole new breadth of plant care knowledge, a take-home care guide, somenew plant cuttings to grow your indoor jungle, plus a few extra gifts from the Tula team.
