The Budding Flower Farmer
1-2-1 Zoom Workshop
Lessons and learnings from Ashwell Flowers
“Sharing with clarity…having just done it”
Join me for a 1 hour '1-2-1' Zoom workshop tailored to you.
Date: Arranged for you
Join me (Barbara Lohoar from Ashwell Flowers) for a tailored 1-2-1 Zoom workshop for
those wishing to grow more cut flowers or
for those venturing into the growing, marketing, and selling of seasonal cut flowers.
Based on your interests the session can cover a range of areas to get you started, keep you going and generally fill you with enthusiasm and plans.
Before our session I'll send you a link to a tour of my flower farm - covering my move into flower farming and so you can see my patch in more detail. I'll also share two other flower farm tours so you can see the diversity of growing environments.
My aim will be to share - in a ‘warts and all ‘way – and in as much detail as time allows, the good, the bad and even the ugly of growing and marketing cut flowers on an artisan scale.
Areas we can cover are:
How to set up a plot and grow sustainably
What to grow and why
Caring, cutting and conditioning flowers for different markets
How and where to sell (different business models)
Essential reference materials and suppliers
You’ll get lots of tips and advise and after the session I'll also send you a handy e-booklet including:
Essential plants to grow
Useful books and reference places
Plus you’ll receive a video tour of each of our plots before the workshop so we can maximise the time we have together.
Book in the shop and then I will contact you to arrange a time for our session together. I look forward to meeting you then.
