We have a huge dahlia patch here at Common Farm, and dahlias are the big show offs in our bouquets from the end of July right up until November.
Join us on our Growing Dahlias workshop and Georgie will tell you all about how we achieve this. We will spend time out on the dahlia patch, looking at the varieties we grow. We will talk about propagation, storing, bugs and disease, varieties to grow, staking, feeding and the best way to cut and condition for flower arrangements for the house. We will also cut some dahlias and make some arrangements with them!
Come and spend the day with Georgie not just admiring them, but being inspired to make more of your own dahlia enthusiasm. It’ll be a fun day and you’ll take home lots of dahlias along with masses of new information.
The workshop takes place between 10am-3pm at Common Farm, BA9 8HN.
The cost includes lunch at a local farm shop, so please advise us of any food allergies / intolerances at the time of booking. Please bring your own drinks (water / hot drinks flasks etc) and any mid morning / afternoon snacks you might like.
There will be a maximum of 10 people on the workshop.
The cost of the workshop includes all materials you will need to use on the day.
Please note that workshops at Common Farm Flowers are taking place outside to enable social distancing, under cover of our sail and out on the farm (where there is no cover!) Please wear clothes suitable for the weather (layers, waterproof clothes) and bring shoes / boots that are designed to walk on rough grassy paths.
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
