Do you love giving fresh flowers to friends and family as a gift of joy?
Have you ever wanted to know how to grow your own beautiful flower garden?
It is easier than you think to grow and arrange your own flowers to enjoy inside and out all year long in our area!
Join WSU Master Gardeners Diana Hogg and Jayne DeMarco as they teach about the best flowers to grow for use as cut flowers, and then show you how to make beautiful arrangements from your cut flower garden. They will share many tips and tricks to ensure that you will have a successful garden of your own.
The presentation starts around 1:15pm and lasts about an hour including Q&A. There will be a handout with an extensive list of flowers and greenery by season, as well as instructions and supply lists.
Jayne DeMarco Bio: I currently have a small cut flower garden on my property as well as flowers in my landscape beds around the house. I love being able to walk out my front door and cut flowers for a sick loved one, or for a quick thank you. It’s a great feeling that I don’t have to rely on the floral market to get the flowers that I need. I was trained at the Floral Design Institute in 2013 and have been a Florist since then. I have trained beginner florists for Fred Myers from Alaska to Oregon. I am a WSU Master Gardener class of 2021.
Diana Hogg Bio: I am a life-long gardener, mostly vegetable gardening, but for the past 5 or so years I have come to love flower gardening too. They are a wonderful benefit to any vegetable garden and I just fell in love with their beauty. I am just as proud of the bouquets of flowers I bring from the garden as I am the cucumbers and tomatoes. I am a member of the Portland Dahlia Society and the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon. I am a WSU Master Gardener class of 2020.
