Berkshire Botanical Garden
Cutting gardens are lovely to view, provide fresh-cut flowers and keep your perennial borders from being raided for indoor display. Learn how to grow a small, highly productive cutting garden as an addition to the vegetable patch or as a stand-alone garden. Consider all aspects of growing cut flowers, including designing and constructing an efficient but beautiful garden using select flower varieties that hold up best as cut flowers. Included in the talk will be tips on sowing, planting, transplanting, cultivating and preparing flowers for indoor use. This program is designed for the home gardener.
