Grow Your Own Cut Flower Business 3 Day Workshop
June 13 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until 15 June 2022
Latteridge, Gloucestershire BS39 9TS United Kingdom
Join Jo and Wendy of Organic Blooms for this leading-edge 3 day workshop which distils all our experience into three intensive and stimulating days!
It will be jointly led by Jo Wright, our Director and Horticulturalist and Wendy Paul, our Director and Lead Florist and is ideally suited to those who want to make the step from leisure gardening to running a commercial cut flower enterprise.
We will go into detail on producing cut flowers as a commercial crop, with lots of advice on species selection to suit different products, planning a year round cropping programme, maximising your space, minimum critical inputs etc.
Once participants are comfortable with producing the flower crops, we will move on to how we prepare them for market – harvesting, conditioning, making a hand tied bouquet, packaging etc.
There will be lots of opportunity for hands-on experience with our flowers so that you can build confidence and get a real feel for the techniques required.
We round the course off with information about the business side of Flower Farming – marketing, pricing, suppliers, costings etc. so that you go away with really useful information and contacts to get started.
Cost: £625 for 3 full days
