GPS nursery is a second-generation family-owned independent retail garden center that has been serving customers in Northern Virginia since 1972. Located just 3½ miles west of Tysons Corner on Route 7, we are convenient to Vienna, Tysons Corner, McLean, Great Falls, Reston, Herndon, and Sterling.
We sell house plants, annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, seeds, bulbs, and Christmas trees. We also sell pots, fertilizer, pesticides, and repellants. We are known for our bonsai, and in addition to selling the plants, we sell bonsai soil, pots, and supplies. We also offer bonsai workshops.
We are a pet-friendly nursery and welcome your well-trained and non-aggressive pets. If they’re good, and with your permission, we may give them a little treat!
Finally, as a small “mom and pop” nursery, we take pride in offering customer service that is unavailable in the big box stores and chains. From helping to load your car to answering your questions, our knowledgeable staff is ready to help make your visit a pleasant one.
Students in this workshop will learn to create and care for their own indoor bonsai. They will begin by choosing a bonsai start from a selection of tropical bonsai starters. Then, using the tree they selected, along with a pot, soil, and wire (all supplied), students will build and train their own bonsai. At the conclusion of the workshop, students will keep the bonsai they created.
The $80 fee per person for this workshop covers all instruction and materials, excluding tools. We will provide tools for you to use, but at the conclusion of the workshop, these tools will remain the property of Wolftrap Nursery. If you have your own favorite tools, please bring them. Please also bring a pen and paper if you wish to take notes.
Attendance is limited to 20 people, and beginners are welcome. Please pay in advance to reserve your seat. We offer discounted rates to groups of two or more people who wish to collaborate to make one bonsai. In those cases, one person will pay the full price, and each of the remaining participants will pay half price.
