Succulent Wreath Making

Naomi Bloss will be our speaker for the September meeting and will be leading her ever-popular and often-requested class on making succulent wreaths.

The club will be providing 11-inch wreath forms stuffed with sphagnum moss and Naomi will be providing the succulent cuttings and expertise. The cost will be $20 per person, cash or check, payable to CSS-SJ. Only 24 wreath forms will be available, and will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis at the time of the meeting. Making your wreath now should allow it time to get rooted by the holidays. You are welcome to bring in cuttings of your own if you wish.

Naomi will be bringing plants for sale.
