Would you love to harvest cut flowers from your garden this Summer? Learn how to plant and maintain a cutting garden in this workshop! From preparing the soil and planning your garden space, to choosing what to plant, and finally planting. Participants will learn the basics of planting a cutting garden, help us plant seedlings in our ornamental beds at Martial Cottle Park, and plant seeds of their choice to take home to start their own cutting garden with!
