Learn:

  • Pushing aside the fluff and getting down to business.
  • Planning the season before you start, the secret to sanity.
  • Growing healthy plants for abundance and fewer chores.
  • Strategies for field grown flowers from early spring until early winter.
  • Harvesting and conditioning techniques.
  • Speed bouquet making for markets.
  • Packing for commercial deliveries.
  • Getting paid for the flowers.
  • And more!

Note: Bring your own clippers and gloves. If flying with carryon luggage we can provide clippers.
