Learn to grow cut flowers in your own backyard in this 7 part/21 hour series. This course is intended for new or lightly experienced gardeners who want to learn basic techniques for producing cut flower crops in their own backyard. Note that this is not intended as a career training course or for those who are quite experienced with cut flower growing, but rather aimed at the hobbyist or homeowner.
The series will cover tools & materials, soil & bed preparation, planning your garden, starting seeds, popular seasonal flowers for beginners, common problems, saving seeds and storing bulbs & tubers, and putting the garden to bed for winter. A field trip to a local grower is included in the course.
Fees include notes and handouts and participants also receive a 50% discount on the Floret Cut Flower Farm book which will be available in our gift shop. A certificate of completion is earned at the end of the series if 80% or more attendance is maintained.
Note that this program focuses specifically on growing flowers and not on floral arrangements. If you are interested in learning more about floral design, consider taking our floral design program.
