It’s no secret that the popularity of gardening is blossoming! Now, it’s easier than ever to grow your own plants, veggies, herbs and flowers at home — with virtual plant workshops and DIY grow kits!

What Are Virtual Plant Workshops?

Since last year’s lockdowns, we’ve seen a massive influx in online events for people to join virtually from anywhere in the world. By attending online workshops, we can learn a new skill, ask questions, and connect with others — all from the comfort of our own home. 

Did you know that there are plenty of virtual plant workshops for you to join? You can learn how to propagate plants, build terrariums, install vertical gardens — and the best ways to grow bonsai trees, mushrooms and indoor herbs — basically anything you can think of!

Live workshops offer you the chance to interact with your teacher, ask questions, and learn from other attendees.

The Urban Botanist Virtual Workshops 

The Urban Botanist is a Canadian company that specialises in virtual plant workshops! They’re all about achieving the perfect balance between craft, design, interactive learning, team bonding and plant therapy.

The Virtual Terrarium Workshop is a crowd-favourite. With the Urban Botanist’s DIY Terrarium Kit, you can receive all the elements that you need to create your own unique terrarium. The 1-hour virtual learning session shows you how to assemble your terrarium step-by-step, and gives you all the tips and tricks you need to care for it. 

There’s also the Virtual Plant Wellness Workshop. This class teaches you how to care for plants, how to grow your collection, and how to incorporate plants into your home for good health and wellness.

Short On Time, Space & Know-How? Try Urban Greens!

Often the world of gardening and growing produce can be overwhelming! Many of us don’t have large backyards or the time to spend caring for a large garden. That’s why at F&F, we’re so excited to stock the amazing range of grow kits from Urban Greens!

Their grow kits contain everything you need to grow microgreens, herbs, spices, leafy greens, veggies, or flowers. For you it’s minimum input, maximum output — and you don’t even need a backyard! Each grow kit comes with clear instructions and all the tools you need to grow your produce.

We also stock the Urban Greens Microgreens Windowsill Grow Kit, which contains Rocket, Cabbage Red and Radish Sprouting Seeds — perfect for salads!

To harvest and prune your micro herbs or microgreens, we recommend using the Urban Greens Ergonomic Garden Snips. These adorable snips are high quality, lightweight and comfortable to use.

We believe gardening — and the satisfaction of growing things — should be accessible to everyone! That’s why we’re so excited about virtual plant workshops and DIY grow kits. 

It doesn’t matter where you live, how much space you have, or how much gardening knowledge you have — you can grow and harvest your own plants, veggies, herbs and flowers at home!
