Flower Growing for Florists Tuesday 17th September 10-3.30


If you work with flowers, whether you describe yourself as a florist, floral designer, or stylist, and want to grow some of your flowers yourself, then this could be the course for you. I have been selling to wholesale florist customers throughout the North West, as well as doing weddings and selling flowers direct to customer, for 6 years now and it is our main source of income.

In this day-long workshop, we will consider how you can add individuality, character and value to your designs by using home grown material. We will be based in the workshop and out in the fields and working areas here at Carol’s Garden - looking at some of the varieties and techniques you can use at home.
