Appleby-in-Westmorland, CA16 6BT
Visit an Eden flower farm and get an introduction to growing cut flowers for your home, with this relaxed evening event.
We begin with a tour of the Fellside Flower Company flower farm in Long Marton, near Appleby. This family-run farm began in 2017, and grows British seasonal flowers, wildflowers and foliage. You'll find out how to include a cutting patch in your garden, which varieties are best to grow, and how to keep them blooming.
The evening continues with tips on cutting and arranging your home-grown flowers, with some hands-on posy-making for you to take home.
By growing your own flowers, you can reduce the environmental impact of imported flowers and boost the biodiversity of your garden. It's a great way to have your own steady supply of flowers for your home, for a special event or to give as gifts.
This event is part of the Cumbria Green Build & Sustainable Living Festival 2019. Thank you to our headline sponsor:
