Flowers for Cutting in the Home Garden
February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree – $20
This class is being offered online.
Come dream about summer flowers with us! Carole Mapes, owner of Flywheel Flowers, will be instructing this introduction to growing cut flowers. This webinar is aimed at gardeners who want to grow more flowers specifically for harvesting & displaying indoors. This webinar also may be of interest to those in the early stages of considering a small-scale cut flower business.
Carole will talk about the annual varieties she finds most reliable, including cosmos, zinnias, and rudbeckia, as well as some of the often-overlooked foliage and filler flowers which are so important to creating full and diverse arrangements. She will also discuss some of the tools and supplies that she finds indispensable; her approach to pests that can be a problem for flower growers; tips for staying on top of weeds; and some harvest considerations. She will also show us her set up for starting seeds indoors.
Carole will focus on her favorite easy-to-grow flowers, touching briefly on a few types of flowers that are trickier to grow. We’ll save lots of time for questions!
This event is being offered on a sliding scale from $0-$20 – please pay whatever fits in your budget.
