Haylee was very lovely. Was a fun and informative class and everyone in the class made a great looking terrarium

Yandi Choong Jul 2021


Hayley was very knowledgeable about terrarium and plants. Her class was easy to follow while still allowed for each individual's freedom of expression. The workshop location was a bit difficult to locate without proper instructions.

Yan Choong Jul 2021


Had a fantastic afternoon making my terrarium. Hallie was knowledgeable and provided ideas and tips for building our terrariums and keeping the plants healthy. Highly recommend!

Hayley West May 2021


The class was so much fun and Haylee was amazing! Everyone in our group had a great time and created some beautiful terrariums.

Alana Couvreur May 2021


The teacher was fantastic! The venue was a little hard to find but well worth it, and well worth the money - you get to make a terrarium which would be honestly quite expensive bought in-store, and the "tipsy" part of the program wasn't just one measly glass of champagne. Alcohol selection was great and bountiful. A huge bonus is also learning about plant care generally on top of terrarium creation!

Heather Wearne May 2021


What a great class! All materials provided by the friendly and knowledgeable teacher. I love my new terrarium and would recommend this to others. The venue behind the main building was unclear.

Mary Butler May 2021


This was such a fun workshop! The steps were clear and simple, I learned heaps, the group size was perfect, there were lots of laughs and I LOVE my terrarium
Thank you

Dominique Khan Mar 2020


Was a fun class, with great information on back ground of Terrariums and how to make them. My daughter and I had alot of laughs and came out with AMAZING Terrarium's to show off. Would recommend and do again.

So much fun in a relatively short period of time! I felt a bit stressed coming into the session trying to juggle workload beforehand but by the end of the class, I felt relaxed and revived :)
Class was very well organised from the delivery of the items, to the actual session. Was great to see the variety of plants that everyone had, and the wonderful results. Thank you!

I can only recommend taking a class with Bel, The Plant Whisperer. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. She started off with the background history of terrariums, explained how to build one and gave really good tips in between. She generously offered to advise on any plant questions and enabled me to learnt a lot about caring better for my green housemates.
The random group was very nice too with all level of plant lovers: novice to plant experts. Everyone was sharing in with showing their plants, asking questions, sharing experiences and giving advice. I loved how interactive the class was.
The 1.5hrs was sufficient time to get our terrariums done and Bel gave a lot of ideas for other types of terrariums.
I had a really good time and already booked the Kokedama class with the Plant Whisperer team. Looking forward to meet Bel again and a new group of plant lovers.

Lisa Gregory Sep 2021


Fantastic experience. Fun, educational and we love the Terrarium we made. Thanks Bel and team.

Lauren Buckley Sep 2021


Was a nice and informative class. Was a different way to spend the weekend and mix it up during lockdown.

Came with three plants and everything you need for the terrarium.

Our bowl came broken but they were good at helping us figure out a solution so that we were able to join in.

Our company (employees in MEL, SYD and ADL) signed up to do a Terrarium making class during lockdown and it was a very enjoyable experience! We were all very excited for this class and to get hands on with making terrariums for the first time! It was also a great opportunity to get the team together during trying times. Haylee was so knowledgeable about all things plants! She was very sweet and patient with the team- we had a lot of questions! The class was delight and lifted our spirits!

“Most beautiful thing ive ever made, It’s just so lovely we have these events and I can use my new skills with zoom to access them. I am so thankful its must so exiting real achievement. “

Hi to the Events team,
A very big thank you for organising today’s terrarium event.

It was the best few hours I’ve had for a few weeks.
Life has been challenging as a Carer & then a hospital stay for myself.
I feel brighter this morning participating in this fun event.
Hayley was excellent & it was lovely having interaction from other carers.

Sadly my glass bowl arrived with a break in the side of it , plus broken plant.

I enjoyed learning from Hayley today & if it is possible I would love to participate in the
plant ball session , if that is ok.

I loved seeing what the other ladies had made with their terrariums & I have lots of ideas to follow up on.
Like visiting an op shop to source vessels & to involve my grandson in helping to create terrariums for gift making, when we are able to leave the house post Covid

Kind thanks for the bright spot of my last few weeks.

A great activity, very clear instructions (and care instructions too) and as a complete beginner I was able to achieve success very quickly. I am inspired to keep building now that I know how. I also have a home worthy of the figures I had (forest spirits from two different movies).

My ten year old daughter created this with me assisting with the instruction sheet. She loved it and the terrarium looks amazing. The plants are just beautiful and she is very proud of her creation that is sitting on her desk. As a visual learner it would be great to have a video to watch along with the instructions but they were very clear for me to help her. Highly recommended and love the decorations included also. Thank you !
