Happy Fall Everyone!
It has arrived, our fall cool air – Say, Ah! After the heat of this summer, I know most of you are enjoying this transition to autumn and rainfall this week.
And of course, it is “pumpkin and mum” time – Having those out eases the pain of moving our container garden plants indoors, overwintering our tubers, corms, rhizomes, and preparing for the seasonal depression you may have when you don’t see those abundant tropical plants and flower colors out in your containers anymore.
But don’t fear – Cathy T is here. And I’m offering our very first “Insiders Club” deal to kick off the fall season.
Are you a member of the new “Insiders Club” and don’t know it?
The answer is YES if you have attended at least 2 of Container Crazy CT’s Workshops in the past. And this means, as an Insider, you are eligible for new deals as a way to show our appreciation for your continued loyal attendance to our programs.
We have always given “gift bags” to our attendees, so those will always continue, but starting this week, our first “Insiders Club” benefit is being offered as follows:
Succulents in Pumpkins, Thursday, 9/29, 5:30 pm
On Thursday, 9/29, yes — that is tomorrow, we are offering a Impromptu Session on Making Succulents with Pumpkins. And there is NO REGISTRATION Fee as an “Insiders Clubs” Member for this session being held tomorrow, and only Insider Club Members are eligible to attend. Again, these occasional special deals are being made as a way to say Thank You. We will be posting more about benefits as an Insiders Club Member on our workshopsct.com site soon as well.
Only Pay for Materials
For tomorrow’s special session, you only pay for the succulents you select to use, any misc decor, and some minor materials needed – but the deal is – it is with supplies remaining and limited stock is available. These deals will pop up as great opportunities arise – which happens in the nature world. Many will be spontaneous so be on the look out for our future emails.
As you know, it is the end of the planting season, and while we have nice small succulents available to work with, the selection is limited – and so are the seats – so if you wish to attend, just reply, text, or call at 860-977-9473 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Care of Succulents
Additionally, we will go over information about care of succulents, propagation of succulents, and also note these pumpkins are “decorative” primarily for a period of time. Some succulents used may be replanted while others may not make it and we will explain how, why and what at tomorrow’s Impromptu Session – but I have to say, they are absolutely adorable – I love how they look as a centerpiece on my table!

What to Bring
You need to bring your own pumpkin, carving tools, and glue gun if you have one with glue sticks. Mini, Medium sized pumpkins work well. The session starts at 5:30 pm (may arrive at 5 pm if you wish), will be held in the big outdoor garage, so wear a sweatshirt. Oh, and as usual, if you wish to bring your own embellishments to add to your pumpkin, feel free to do so.
If questions, feel free to ask. Hope you can make it and watch for future emails on Insiders Club messages.
Thank you, Cathy Testa
