Join Warner’s Houseplant Club

Update as of 3/18/20: Warner’s Nursery will continue to host the Houseplant Club, but in light of coronavirus restrictions, will be limiting the club to the first 10 attendees to arrive.

Indoor plants are more popular than ever and it’s easy to see why. House (or office) plants clean the air, bring life to a room, enhance creativity and connect you with nature.

Warner’s Nursery is offering a series of FREE* houseplant classes so you can learn everything about growing conditions, potting, maintenance and how to avoid pest and other common houseplant problems. *Some classes are followed by an optional workshop where you get to create your own plant masterpiece for a discounted fee.

You’ll also meet a wide array of plants that you might want to add to your growing indoor garden – from “easy-peasy” to exotics. Plus you’ll get to meet and mingle with other houseplant enthusiasts!
