The Cutting Garden
The strange year that was 2020 showed us all just how important our gardens are…they are literally where we maintain our sanity, let our creativity flow and work mindfully. Growing flowers for cutting has to be one of the most rewarding things you can do and I will share all my knowledge with you. We are not talking flower farms, yields, costs etc here…just creating, planning, maintaining and enjoying a domestic sized cut flower garden or area.
If you have a space where you are planning to grow flowers or you have started already but just want to know more then this is the course for you.
We will discuss how I created my (fifth -I keep moving house!) cutting garden in Eastbourne this year during Lockdown. I will cover:
- Location and orientation
- Raised beds and soil
- What to grow throughout the year
- Where to source seed, tubers, bulbs etc
- How and when to sow seeds, plant tubers etc
- Plant supports
- How to maximise productivity
- Maintenance e.g. dead heading , weeding, pest control
- Conditioning your flowers
- and more…
Spend the day immersed in pictures and ideas and start creating your step by step plan of action…you’ll never look back!
