Summer is here and you sure have all the activities in mind. But if you want something refreshing and less stressful, Cedarhills has in store workshops that aim to inspire more people to practice urban gardening in their respective homes to make our country healthier and greener.
Cedarhills Garden Center will hold a Dish Gardening and Terrarium making workshops on its store at Mother Ignacia St, Quezon City. And for some of you might find it boring and hardwork. But let me prove some good points here.
To prove that it’s more refreshing to go green this summer,Cedarhills kicked off the workshop through inviting press and bloggers to experience making garden dishes and terrariums. They had a hands-on experience on the materials to be used, the step-by-step process and the maintenance of the plants.
Getting Started with your TERRARIUM
Terrariums are becoming a modern trend in many homes. Compared to regular house plants that require a consider- able amount of attention and care, terrariums are easy to create, affordable, and require little to no maintenance.
Terrariums are simply a display of various kinds of plants –a miniature garden. Initially used to demonstrate how an ecosystem works, terrariums have now become a popular trend among homeowners, bringing a sense of inspiration and joy of nature to the household. The simple, aesthetic atmosphere they bring is what makes it such a popular item. The best part, terrariums can be personalized according to your personality and style.
What so LIT about Dish Gardens?
Dish gardens have been popular for years and make great gifts for homes and offices. A dish garden can be defined as a “small-scale landscape,” or “a miniature garden in a shallow, open container.”
The shallow, open container is where a dish garden differs from a terrarium, which normally requires a closed(often glass) environment to maintain humidity levels and keep terrarium plants happiest.
Making these small plants can give these benefits: more oxygen, refreshing to the eyes, creativity, and less stress.
Cedarhills houses various species of seedlings, plants, flowers and different types of soils, fertilizers and gardening tools offered by Cedarhills which gardening hobbyist, planting enthusiasts and urban farmers can enjoy.
Cedarhills Garden Center, formerly known as Green 2000 Garden Center was established in the year 2000 and found its first store along Sumulong Highway in Rizal. In the hopes to cater to more garden enthusiasts and hobbyists in the urban market, the then Green 2000 opened its main store at the Manila Seedling Bank Environmental Center in 2002. In 2013, Cedarhills moved to Mother Ignacia St. due to the disclosure of the Manila Seedling Bank.
