Georgie Newbery will show you the essentials for creating a successful cut flower patch on this online workshop.
Find out how to cut the space up, how to create lush soil which your plants will love, what to plant and where, top tips for varieties and percentage use of space per kind of plant.
Do you need a greenhouse or tunnel? Where should you put it? What would make a good wind break? How much foliage will you need? Which are the best accent flowers, filler and foliage to grow? Do you need a lot of room? Georgie will take you through all these questions, with a tour through her own cut flower patches and some sketched designs to help inspire you to create a cut flower garden in your own space.
Georgie has been growing cut flowers for bouquets for 11 years. She started on a space about the dimensions of a good sized allotment, and now grows in four patches covering about three and a half acres. She knows the most important varieties to plant, and how much room to the square metre that plants need. Let her inspire you to start creating your cut flower patch ready for a bounty of flowers all summer long next year.
Lasting around two hours, the workshop has space for just 15 participants and costs £95 per person, which includes a link to the recorded session and notes to remind you of the design priorities Georgie has identified.
