In this workshop, you will learn about growing flowers organically in your home garden. We will cover all of the information you need to successfully grow your own flower garden this summer.
·Different kinds of flower gardens (cutting gardens, color-themed gardens, fragrance gardens, edible flower gardens)
·Annual and perennial flowers
·Soil, water, and sunlight requirements
·Control of diseases and pests
·Maintenance of your flower garden
·Sources for flower plants

During the class, we will plan a flower garden near the walking paths at Spence Farm as an example, and then in late May or early June we invite all workshop participants to come to the farm to plant the flower garden for the public to enjoy (date to be agreed upon after input from workshop participants).
