Grow Your Own Cut Flower Patch Workshop
Spend a day learning all about the intricacies of growing a cut flower patch with Georgie Newbery, inlcuding tips on how to lay out and make the most of your patch, seed sowing and cutting and conditioning your home grown blooms.
Feed the bees, birds and butterflies, and grow amazing bouquets for yourself and your friends and family to enjoy, after a great day learning about growing a cut flower patch here at Common Farm Flowers between Bruton and Wincanton in Somerset.
Flower farmer Georgie Newbery will show you all the tips and tricks she has for growing a successful cut flower patch. She’ll advise you on which compost to use, soil management, feeding plants and soil: she’ll help you plan which seeds to sow, which perennials and shrubs work well in cut flowers, and she’ll send you home with a whole garden of seeds which you’ll have sown yourself ready to have a whole summer of flowers in your own garden.
This is a great fun day for which you need nothing more than enthusiasm and a willingness to give flower growing a go. You’ll be amazed afterwards by your successes, and flower growing will become part of your every gardening year.
£150 per person including lunch, tea, coffee and lots of cake.
There will be a maximum of 10 people on the workshop.
