09 Apr Spring is the Time to Plant at Bethany Blues!
Spring is in the air, but it’s still too early to get out in the garden. Don’t worry, Bethany Blues has got you covered with “Plant Nites” at both locations that will have you putting your green thumb to work while you enjoy premium barbecue at your favorite local hot spot.
Planting Coach Denise Bradshaw leads the events, and for her, horticulture is in her blood. “I come from a farming background,” Bradshaw explains. “And when I learned that I could go to school for it, and make a career out of it, I was excited.” Bradshaw earned a degree in Horticulture from Ohio State, and ever since she has worked with plants in various mediums. Last year, after attending a paint night and posting about it on social media, someone said they heard about something similar for plants.
“I looked it up, and reached out to the paint night people, asking if I could be their plant nite leader.” She said that after that, it all fell into place.
Each evening has it’s own theme, and the plants change accordingly. “What people really like is that, although we have a theme, we aren’t all doing the same thing. Everyone does something a little different.” Bradshaw loves this creative element to the planting.
Beginning at 7PM, the class assembles. Participants can choose from a variety of plants, and Bradshaw gives a tutorial on the types of plants, how the they grow, and how to properly care for them. She says this allows for people to pick the plants that suit them best. As the planting begins, everyone is instructed on proper drainage for the planters, and how high or low to plant, depending on root structure. It’s a hands on learning experience with a tangible takeaway.
For Bethany Blues, it’s another way for the community to gather and do something exciting and new. Tiffany Cordeaux, Event Coordinator for the Bethany Location says, “We’ve been doing the plant nights for a couple of months now, and our customers really love it! They come away with a plant, and they’ve had a fantastic meal and/or drinks. What could be better?”
On Tuesday, April 24th, the Bethany Beach location will be hosting a Sea Glass and Succulents theme. Tuesday, May 8th, the Lewes location will host a Mermaid Planter themed planting event. Enjoy Bethany Blues’ great barbecue and a bourbon or beer beforehand, and make a full event out of the night. This is a great way to get out of the house and do something a little different this spring season. This is a creative evening whether it’s for girls’ night, date night, or heading over to make mom an extra special Mother’s Day gift.
