At our May meeting, Cynthia Wright of Meadowbrook Farm demonstrated how to make a wreath out of hardy succulents for use outdoors. She gave us tips on what types of succulents to use for outdoors and also had kits for sale that included the sphagnum moss wreath and hardy sempervivum plugs and plants. If any members complete their living wreath, please email a photo to Rosemary Tottoroto.
