I bought this as something for my partner and I to do as he wanted one for his office. The class was great! Learning about the history of the terrarium was really interesting. There was a nice variety of plants to choose from and our teacher was fab- really kind and approachable and supported my partner with his questions. He also helped him to decide on a trailing plant too! Would 100% recommend :)
