Cut Flower Workshop reviews

“I enjoyed the workshop yesterday!“    The butterflies floating from plant to plant yesterday were fascinating to watch.”

“The class was so much fun today.  I learned so much from you.  Your flower arranging skills are superb!  Thank you for all your hard work and for being such a great teacher.”

“Thank you for a great class and for the beautiful bouquets!  Our house looks stunning and I can’t wait to show Bill what we learned today.  Thanks again for a super class. You make it so much fun. I can’t wait to try out some of my weirdo vases.”

My Thanks to you ALL for the unsolicited comments from yesterday’s Cut Flower Workshop.  You make it worth all the effort it takes to make this a special class!  I had a great time too!  I am teaching the workshop again this Saturday, August 11th and on Friday, August 17th  , 9am to noon. There is room for a few more students and it is a great class to share with your friends.

We spend our first hour touring the cutting garden, discuss the best flowers and foliage to grow for fresh flower arrangements and how to care for your plants to extend their bloom time.  There are so many butterflies you will think I raise them too!!   The remainder of our time is in my air-conditioned workshop talking about growing different flowers, how to treat our cut stems and design arrangements for different settings.

Below are more photos of your arrangements.  Make someone happy, bring flowers with the wine!

    Your classes are always so wonderful.

    I especially loved learning which flowers hold up in arrangements and which to avoid.

    See you at your next workshop!

    Thanks for your message and thank you for inviting JoAnn to the class. Even non-gardeners get excited about cut flowers. I think a 2-hour workshop of just flower arranging would be fun for a girls day out or a garden club group. Loved having you in class!

    The pictures of the different arrangements are inspiring. Ellen, you are so right about the Henry Eyler’s Rudebeckia being a great addition to our gardens. It photograps very well. Would have never known about this great flower had it not been for your class. Have always been a big fan of Martha Stewart but she has NOTHING on you!
