Join Begonia experts in creating your own terrarium using begonias from the nationally recognized Begonia Species Collection. You will learn the method of creating and caring for a miniature tropical habitat for rare and exotic species and hybrids. You will take home your glass terrarium for instant color.

Instructor Bobbie Price is a 20 year volunteer in the nationally recognized Begonia Species Bank along with Don Miller who has spent his life searching for new species and conserving rare begonias. Debbie Garrett, the staff curator for the collection, studied horticulture at the University of North Texas. Her love for begonias centers on the conservation of the species.

Please Note: This class will take place in the Begonia Greenhouse at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.
