13 July 2017 • House Plants 101 Workshop

It was fantastic! I learnt so much..and Bella shared so much information with us, more than the scope of the class. I do feel that the price we paid was too low to be honest - we came away with so much! Really looking forward to taking more classes with Bella.

Great class!


28 February 2017 • House Plants 101 Workshop

I learnt how to correctly pot the plant. Bella explained all about a number of indoor plants. She explains things in a way that the beginner gardener can easily understand, but has a vast knowledge of her subject that I'm sure the experienced gardener would also learn something. Very friendly and pleasant time.
