Seeds are provided by the Seed Exchange in The Library at the Gardens. Each garden kit, individually wrapped with seasonal ribbon, includes a planter, soil, seeds, planting instructions, special card crafting supplies, and a related children’s bibliography.

Refunds (minus a $15 processing fee) will be given for Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens programs priced at $25 or more if notification is made at least 10 business days prior to class start date. (You are always welcome to send another person under your registration if you cannot attend.) Transfers may be made to programs of equal value at no additional fee. We reserve the right to cancel classes due to lack of participation or other unforeseen circumstances.
