Georgie Newbery - Secrets of the Cutting Garden 17/03/15
Georgie Newbery, artisan flower farmer and florist, demonstrates how to make a gorgeous hand-tie bouquet with the kinds of flowers you might have growing in your garden. Author of The Flower Farmer’s Year, Georgie specialises in using only flowers grown in the UK (mostly by herself in her seven acre garden in Somerset) and is a speaker who will inspire you to look at your garden and the contents of your vases in a completely different way. Her talk covers growing, cutting, conditioning and arranging flowers from your garden while bringing in all sorts of information ranging from the behemoth that is the world cut flower trade, to how to make compost teas. There is always plenty of time for questions at the end.
