Cutting garden workshop planned for North Conway

February 18, 2018 by  

A cutting garden can be an easy way for a green thumb to have a great looking yard and still have a supply of fresh flowers for bouquets, and those who are interested in adding one to their property are invited to attend a North Conway area workshop.

Local flower farm owner Nancy Stedman will be hosting an event, where she will be sharing tips about how members of the public can turn a patch of their yard into a floral garden for cutting. It is open to anyone who would like to attend, and has been organized by the Mountain Garden Club.

Stedman has operated her certified organic flower farm for 20 years, and she will be sharing her expertise with those who participate. During the workshop, the attendees will learn about choosing which plants will do best in this type of garden, as well as which can withstand cutting and continue to produce flowers. Placement of this type of flower bed will also be discussed, as will how to care for the plants and control weeds and pests using organic methods. Print shops in the area will be able to provide copies of any handouts that will be use during a class like this.

Conway’s Salyards Center for the Arts will be the location for this horticultural event. It will begin at 9:30 am on March 19. More information can be found on the garden club’s website.
