Flower Farming Workshops

Want to know what flower farming is all about? These classes will cover site planning, reliable flower choices, germination and planting techniques as well as irrigation, fertilization and pest management.

We offer a Spring, Summer and Fall module for this course. Each module highlights the specific techniques and flowers of that season. The spring module focuses on seed starting, early season flowers and setting your farm up for success. The summer module focuses on deadheading, pruning and fertilization as well as starting later season flowers. The Fall module focuses on overwintering flowers, storage of lifted tubers and bulbs and planning for the following season.
