Spring Basket Planting Party
March 22, 23, & 24 2024
Watch for signups mid January 2024!
By March of any given year, Thomsens clientele and Minnesotans in general have endured 5 months of harsh cold, snow and life without the beauty and serenity of lush gardens and extravagant floral color. In 2009, Thomsens introduced the perfect remedy to these seasonal doldrums – the Spring Basket Planting Party!
Our Spring Basket Planting Party is the perfect escape, in the lush oasis of our greenhouse! The party begins with the opportunity to learn about mix container design from the experts, and continues as you marvel over the tremendous choice of annual plants available to use in your own custom creation. Bidding farewell to dirty hands and your labor of love, we take over the growing and care until Mother Nature has lifted her wintry burden from Central Minnesota. Sip a glass of wine, savor some food, enjoy a massage and music; all of which are included in this experience. One person per ticket – no guests please.
Thomsens Spring Basket Planting Party features a 14-inch container, which can serve as either a hanging basket or patio container. Basket templates, expert instruction, and hands-on assistance will assure you have an enjoyable and successful design experience. You can choose to design and plant one or more containers, depending on your specific needs. Before you arrive to the party, consider a few aspects of container design: Will the container be in a sun or shade exposure? How much maintenance throughout the season will you give your container? Do you have a particular color scheme to follow?
To ensure the most fulfilling experience, reservations are required. Our 2024 party has three days for you to choose from: Friday, March 22, Saturday, March 23, & Sunday, March 24. Purchase your ticket online to guarantee your place.
Baskets will be available for pickup in the latter half of May. We encourage you to come out to visit your young creation as it develops into a beautiful blossoming masterpiece.
