More fun than a barrel of pumpkins!
And fewer calories! Who would have thought that succulents and pumpkins could mix! Master gardener Laura Eubanks did. She will be giving a seminar at Green Gardens Nursery in Pacific Beach on Saturday October 22 at 2 pm on the creation of these beauties. Laura was kind enough to give the following information for those of us who cannot attend: “We won’t have need to cut into the pumpkins as all of the succulents are glued to a thin layer of sphagnum moss which, in turn is glued to the top of the gourd! With a little TLC, the succulents will root right through the glue and into the moss. I have succulent topped pumpkins from last year!” Ingenious! Green Gardens will also be selling some of the succulent pumpkin centerpieces at the nursery. (www.sdgreengardens.com) If you are not familiar with Green Gardens, take a trip to check it out! It’s a gem of a nursery that offers especially creative shopping during the holidays.
HOLD THE PRESSES: 10/16/2011 — I will be able to attend the pumpkin/succulent class on Saturday. I’ll take photos and supply instructions so you can make these at home!
