Family Gardening Workshop | Bulbs

Saturday, March 23, 2019 10:00 am

Gardens of the Hampton-Preston Mansion
1615 Blanding Street,
Columbia, SC 29201

Gardeners of all ages are invited to experience Historic Columbia’s family
friendly gardening workshop!

Digging alongside Historic Columbia horticulturists, families will learn
about historic gardening techniques and plant several types of summer
flowering bulbs - such as Irises, Spider Lilies, Milk and Wine Lilies, and
Day Lilies- throughout the newest two-acre addition to the gardens at the
Hampton-Preston Mansion.

Following the gardening activity, families will learn about the wonders of
plants and how they grow! Enjoy a spring themed story time in the gardens
before participating in a sedimentary sensory take-home activity. Afterwards,
compete in a friendly bulb toss and bulb spoon race! The Robert Mills Grounds
and Gardens will also be open to explore with a scavenger hunt.

Tickets are $8/youth and free for accompanying adults.
