Homegrown Garden Bouquets with Blithewold Garden Manager Gail Read
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! Join Blithewold Gardens Manager Gail Read for a lecture that will highlight her favorite combinations of cutting-garden plants, as well as the techniques and timing of plantings that will help you create lovely seasonal garden bouquets. From tulips to chrysanthemums, she will walk you through the process of growing a beautiful cutting garden of your own.
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.
