TROPICAL PARADISE
Designing with Tropicals

David Pippin shows you how to liven up the short, cold days of winter by going “wild and crazy” with branches and foliage from the winter garden and some bright tropicals to add a welcome dash of warmth. At the end of the workshop, take your own tropical paradise home with you.
