GROW YOUR OWN CUT FLOWERS WORKSHOP 2019 - £119
Saturday 16 March 2019
Saturday 21 September 2019
This workshop is designed for people who have some gardening and growing experience but feel they need to hone their skills to provide a better and wider range of useable plant material to help them create beautiful and distinctive floral arrangements, from mid March to mid October. It is aimed at people who wish to grow for floral artistry rather than cut stems for florists.
Jane has a truly extensive plant knowledge having run a specialist perennial nursery for nearly 10 years where all the plants were propagated in house; created two of her own gardens from scratch; prepared the cut flower growing areas here at Edmonds & Howard and also created some superb gardens as a professional garden designer since late 2003, ranging from those for smart town houses to large estates with acreage.
The day will comprise:
- *Jane taking you through her month by month guide of what you should be doing
- *Sharing with you growing tips and techniques that she uses for success
- *Providing you with a number of plant choices that you may not previously have considered
- *Supplying you with back up notes and schedules to help you plan satisfying and distinctive flower arrangements
The day runs from 10-4pm and is limited to 6 attendees. Home- made lunch will be served along with refreshments.
To book, please Email firstname.lastname@example.org stating whether you require a vegetarian option for lunch or telephone 01747 840852 and leave a message whereby you will be contacted and provided with Paypal or Bank details.

These workshops are designed for people who would like to provide more than just a bunch of flowers. Learn to tie both a luxury posy AND a large hand tied bouquet of distinctive and varied British flowers, also gaining some very valuable growing and selecting tips.
After initial introductions and refreshment, the day will begin with a walk around the plot, discussing with Jane, her favoured plants.
Jane will then demonstrate the making of a luxury hand tied posy, showing how she chooses her material to sit well together and sharing with you how she conditions various material and at what stage she picks for both events and sending bouquets by post.
Then make your own posy each in groups of two or three with guidance from Jane, using a fabulous selection of floral material all grown here, cut, conditioned and ready for use.
After lunch Jane will demonstrate the making of a large bouquet and you will follow suit as before.
Back up notes will be provided to help you plan satisfying flower combinations for your own arrangements.
The days run from 10-4pm and are limited to 6 attendees. Home made lunch will be served along with refreshments.
These workshops are informal and great fun but packed with information and beautiful flowers all grown here on the plot.
