About This Class

Plants heighten our creativity, happiness, and even oxygen levels — and this short class covers everything you need to start and cultivate your own houseplant collection!

Taught by The Sill's Botanist Christopher Satch, you'll learn about the proven benefits of bringing plants into your home, how to shop for healthy plants, and how to choose the best plants for your space.

Looking to add plants to your home? Eager to grow your collection? This class is the perfect place to start.

The Sill was created with a simple ambition: to inspire people to bring more of the outdoors in. Their mission is to make the experience of discovering the perfect plants as wonderful as the plants themselves.
