Forcing spring bulbs indoors can be a rewarding gardening activity year after year. Once the Holidays are over, we long for the first sights of spring. By tricking tulips, daffodils and other minor bulbs to perform as seasonal houseplants indoors allows a jump start of floral color and garden nurturing.


Each student creates and takes home 3 containers of different bulbs to vernalize in an at-home refrigerator and then tips to bring those bulbs to bloom in a window in February and March.

Refund Policy
Although we are unable to refund registration fees in the case of cancellation by the purchaser, the paid registration can be transferred to another student. In this case, please notify KAT RIVERS at KRIVERS@WATERFRONTGARDENS.ORG or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only.
Emergency Cancellation
In the event of an emergency cancellation, the Gardens will contact registered students with a cancellation notice (always provide/maintain a current email address and phone number so that we may notify you of an emergency or cancellation).
