Cutting gardens are lovely to view, provide fresh-cut flowers and keep your perennial borders from being raided for indoor display. Learn how to grow a small, highly productive cutting garden as an addition to the vegetable patch or as a stand-alone garden. This talk by Elisabeth Cary will consider all aspects of growing cut flowers including garden design and the selection of flower varieties that hold up best as cut flowers. You will hear tips on sowing, planting, transplanting, cultivating and preparing flowers for indoor use.
Elisabeth Cary was formerly the Director of Education at the Berkshire Botanical Garden and has been gardening for over 30 years. She is currently developing Cooper Hill Flower Farm, a micro flower farm in Sheffield, Massachusetts.
