Mounted Staghorn Fern Workshop
Tuesday 11th December | 6.30pm-8pm | £35
In this workshop with Victoria you will learn how to mount a Staghorn Fern to a wooden board complete with built in hook ready to hang at home or give as a gift.
Staghorn Ferns have earned the nickname ‘Vegan Antlers’ due to the antler-like ‘fronds’ that grow out from the center of the plant. These ferns are ‘epiphytes’ meaning they grow in their natural habitat attached to a host plant as a base and take nutrients from the air. This makes them excellent candidates for mounting on to a wooden board as they require little root space to survive.
The workshop includes all materials and hands on assembly instructions to create your own ‘living wall art’. Victoria will also talk about plant care instructions so you can keep your new best ‘frond’ in tip top condition.
