The cut flower patch with Georgie Newbery

The Auditorium at the Edward James Studios, West Dean College of Arts and Conservation



On Saturday 18 April, Georgie Newberry will be hosting a talk on all aspects of growing your own cut flowers, with a seed sowing workshop included.

Flower farmer Georgie Newbery will show you all the tips and tricks she has for growing a successful cut flower patch. She will advise you on which compost to use, soil management, feeding plants and soil: she will help you plan which seeds to sow, which perennials and shrubs work well in cut flowers, and she will send you home with a whole garden of seeds which you will have sown yourself ready to have a whole summer of flowers in your own garden.

Students should arrive by 9.30am for registration.

Lunch is included.
