Winter Container Workshop

  • Sailers Greenhouse 1610 170th Street East Shakopee, MN, 55379 United States (map)

It’s that time of year again! Sailer’s Greenhouse Winter Workshops are back. Reserve your spot for our most popular get together of the year! Every Saturday in November, we will host a Winter Workshop Open House. So grab some pals, make your reservation and head on over to Sailer’s Greenhouse!

No matter what the temperature is outside, step inside our cozy greenhouse filled with fresh spruce tips, pine boughs, eucalyptus and other decorative essentials. 

Our winter workshops are so popular that, new this year, we are extending them to run all day! Instead of specific times, simply make a reservation for a specific day and then stop in anytime, that day, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to make your beautiful winter container! 

For those of you that still crave a little more direction, we will provide optional, in-depth demonstrations at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m., each Saturday. Our demonstrations will break down the basics of designing, creating and caring for your winter spruce tip container and showcase the latest trends.

Throughout the day, members of Sailer’s Greenhouse design staff will be on hand to help you create a truly unique and personalized winter container. With your creative vision and our fresh ingredients, each guest will leave with a stunningly unique outdoor arrangement that will adorn your home all winter long.

You may bring your own pot, or pick from a large selection of pots at various price points. Our 12” natural fiber pot is the most popular as it works well as an insert or sitting on its own.
