About

During this hands-on workshop at Stillingfleet Lodge Garden you will learn how to choose the best varieties of flowers to grow for cutting; their propagation; growing-on; feeding; watering; supporting plants and picking the flowers. This will help you plan the yearly cycle of cut flower growing, giving you your own flowers to cut for months and months.

The course will be led by Harrogate-based flower grower, Elizabeth Jackson. You will have the opportunity to plant some flower seeds in pots so that you can start your own cut-flower garden. Soil, seeds and pots will be provided.
