Terrarium terroir

New books, workshops, inventory at garden centers and design stores - it's all about terrariums, which were also highlighted in the latest issue of Martha Stewart's magazine. Tomorrow night at 6 p.m. I'll be at Terrain at Styers (914 Baltimore Pike in Glen Mills, 610-459-2400) for a workshop ($25, includes potting materials and a glass of wine, plants and terrrariums available to buy).

But there are others coming up.


Primex Garden Center (435 W. Glenside Ave., Glenside, 215-887-7500) has one scheduled for Feb. 25, 10-11 a.m., $25, includes glass bowl, soil and 3 plants. And Meadowbrook Farm (1633 Washington Lane, Meadowbrook, 215-887-5900) plans one on Jan. 21, 1-3 p.m.; $25 members, $35 nonmembers, includes soil, moss and small plants. You can bring your own terrarium container or buy one at the workshop. (info 215-988-8869).

I visited Meadowbrook this morning and noted quite a few terrariums in the gift store. Very cute! Story coming up on Jan. 27. This one's gonna be fun.
