Time: 4-6 pm
Location: Red Maple Flowers, Inman SC

Come learn with me and a small group of friends how to create a cutting garden that will fill your home with blooms.

This workshop is a full-season introduction to growing a cutting garden. We’ll plant and tend a cutting garden throughout the year at my farm in Inman, SC.

We begin with a fall planting session in October and meet again for spring planting in April. We’ll discuss bed prep, variety selection, winter protection, succession planting, and plans for your own cutting garden. You’ll receive seeds and corms to take home and start your own cutting garden. The planting workshops will be 2 hours each.

Then we’ll meet monthly to tend our cutting garden. Each of these meetings will be one hour, and will immediately precede the monthly field to vase workshop.

The Field to Vase workshops will be held monthly, beginning in April. We’ll use the materials from our cutting garden to create floral arrangements for your home. You’ll also be able to wander the farm and gather other materials from my collection of roses, hydrangeas, shrubs, perennials, and more.

Two workshop options are available:

-Gardening Only includes the two, two-hour workshops and the monthly garden tending.

-Gardening with Field to Vase Pass includes the gardening workshop and admission to all 7 monthly Field to Vase workshops at a discounted rate. If you’d just like to attend those, please see their listing. Registration for this workshop will open first, giving participants priority for the seats in the Field to Vase workshops.

Class size is 3-5 students, and will only run if at least 3 students sign up.
