GROW YOUR OWN CUT FLOWERS

 

 Saturday March 24th 10.30-2.30

Tuesday March 27th   10.30-2.30

This workshop is aimed at those of you who want to grow flowers for the house or to give to friends, but don't want to deplete their gardens. We will discuss the no-dig method of creating beds, practised here at Blue Hen, what flowers are best for cut and come again, not forgetting biennials and successional sowing, and how to get the most from a small area. Everyone will have a choice of seeds to sow and will go home with some sown seed ready to get going on the next stage of your cut flower patch.  The day will include a light lunch and free flowing refreshments throughout the day. Please bring warm coats and wellies!

£70 a head.
