Perennial Essentials

Registration for this class has closed.

Cultivate sustainable, wildlife-friendly gardens using perennials – plants that live for two or more years without needing to be replaced. You’ll get practical guidance on selecting and caring for species that thrive in Texas’s unique environmental conditions. The class will end with a visit to the Perennial Garden to see the beauty and bounty of perennials in action on campus. Registration includes Garden admission for the day—we encourage you to explore the Garden after class!

Instructor: Mauricio Rico has always had a love for plants, and houseplants and terrariums are a special passion. He finds spreading the knowledge and love of plants to be rewarding. Mauricio’s professional journey began with an elective horticulture class at Tarrant County College. This motivated him to pursue Horticulture Science at Tarleton State University. At Tarleton, Mauricio’s interests shifted from landscaping plants to tropical house plants. As part of a senior project, he created a horticulture business that specialized in terrariums. Mauricio’s project was so popular among his classmates, he realized it could be a successful small business. In 2019, Mauricio graduated with a BS in Horticultural Science and established Rico’s Terrariums. You can find Rico’s Terrariums—in small and large containers—at local farmers markets or by custom ordering from Mauricio. Connect with Mauricio on Facebook “Rico’s Terrariums” and on Instagram @ricosterrariums.

Inclement Weather: Class will meet indoors and will not visit the Perennial Garden.
