Grow and Arrange Your Own Cut Flowers
Saturday 30th April
Saturday 8th October
Aimed at beginners looking to start or improve a cut-flower garden, Bek will teach you all you need to grow a variety of annuals, perennials and bulbs that will last you throughout the season. Here at Blooming Green we’re proud of growing flowers in a way that benefits wildlife and improves the health of your soil —so we will teach you how to grow from seed, plant bulbs, save seeds, grow using peat-free compost and tackle pests in a chemical-free, no-dig way.
The afternoon will be spent with our florists learning how to pick, condition and arrange flowers as a gift or for your home. We will teach you how to create a hand-tied posy using the ‘spiralling’ stem technique as well as creating a foam-free table centre. You will leave with flowers, a goody bag packed with information, our recommended suppliers, top tips and more. Plus, new knowledge, skills, and confidence to grow your own flowers.
All materials, refreshments and lunch are provided.
