What's in Bloom at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates?

Hypertufa Class at Edison Ford

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On February 24th

Come to the Edison Ford Winter Estates Garden Shoppe in Fort Myers, FL for our Unique Hypertufa pots and planters.  Did you know the “Edison Portland Cement Company” in 1899 improved the production of cement with a special patented process we still use today?  These containers are a fashionable way to show off a myriad of plant varieties.  It could be succulents, orchids, herbs, or whatever your imagination inspires to use these hand-made wonders.

In case you want to learn how to do this process on your own, we are offering a CRAFT YOUR OWN   HYPERTUFA SHOEBOX TROUGH taught by our own extraordinary volunteer JIM HOPTON.

This two-day workshop is offered MARCH 7TH at 10:00am, meeting in the Greenhouse Propagating Nursery (2 hours).  Then a MARCH 10 second day of the workshop an AM/PM schedule to accommodate the participants. (1.5 hours).  The workshop is two days to allow for proper drying to the trough before it is taken home by the participant.
