Fresh-cut flowers in your home can be one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to celebrate any season. It is even more gratifying when the flowers are homegrown!

While this class will primarily focus on growing a cutting garden, Gail will have an assortment of simple cutting-garden bouquets on display to provide inspiration for your own unique floral creations.

Refreshments will be enjoyed on the terrace after the presentation.
