If your dream is a garden blooming with beautiful flowers all the year round, and the knowledge to be able to create and maintain it yourself, then this is the perfect course for you. This is the 4th time we will have run this course, and every time we do it sells out and afterwards we are inundated with wonderfully positive feedback.
Where Inspiration Blooms co-founder Caroline Oden, has for several years also run The Hidden Gate Blooms, an independent, artisan flower growing business specialising in British seasonal flowers. She is also an active member of Flower from the Farm, an RHS Chelsea Flower Show award winning co-operative of British cut flower growers.
This one-day course is jam packed with information and guidance on everything relating to how to grow flowers; from seeds to cuttings, bulbs to compost, bouquets to overwintering and everything in between. Caroline is a brilliantly generous teacher, sharing so much from her many years of experience and offering you the chance continually throughout the day to ask specific questions to ensure that everything you need to know for your own personal projects are fully covered.
We will provide everything you need on the day including a delicious lunch and lots of tea, coffee, soft drinks and refreshments.
You will leave with seeds, a couple of seed trays filled with seedlings and cuttings that will give you an abundance of flowers for your house and garden plus a stunning hand-picked (by you!) seasonal hand-tied bouquet.
For more information email Caroline on firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you to The Barn.
Grow Your Own Cut Flowers Workshop
"I have been to a couple of workshops here and the quality of the courses is exceptional. The Grow your own Cut Flowers workshop was simply delightful - Caroline is so generous with her knowledge and with her flowers. I literally came home with a bucket of cut flowers, plus seeds, seedlings, cuttings... And the lunch! Caroline and Jules create a very warm and welcoming atmosphere." Sue, May 2019
"I had a wonderful day last month at the Growing Autumn Cut Flowers workshop with Caroline. She was so welcoming, helpful and generous with her knowledge. It was lovely to see her beautiful flowers that she grows and to learn different techniques such as propagation and flower arranging. We had a delicious lunch and came away with a huge handout of information, seed trays and plug plants and a goodie bag of bulbs for autumn planting! I found it a very inspiring and enjoyable day." Helen, October 2018
"I attended the cut flowers workshop at the end of September. Caroline and Jules were so welcoming to our lovely small group. It was a very fun and fact filled day.....with a great lunch and free flowing cups of tea and coffee. I learnt lots especially about propagating. Along with the hand tied bouquets of flowers we’d chosen and cut from Caroline’s cutting patch we all took home seeds we’d sown, cuttings we’d propagated and sweet little bags of bulbs that Caroline had put into our goodie bags.
Very good value for money. I highly recommend it! Inspiration certainly bloomed! Thank you Caroline and Jules" Caroline (Not me Caroline!), October 2018
