Break the Rules with Blooming Green
Thu 25 May, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm BST
Here at Blooming Green, we’re not big fans of the rulebook, whether that means questioning age-old gardening practices or trying alternatives to traditional floristry techniques. During Chelsea Fringe we will be holding three topical courses for gardeners and florists alike, starting with a Planting and No-Dig workshop inspired by our mentor, Charles Dowding.
This will be followed by two floristry workshops and an afternoon of Pick-Your-Own Flowers. Our workshops are fun, informal events, for all levels — all you need to do is bring yourself! Refreshments and picnic area provided.
Planting and No-Dig workshop Thursday May 25, 10am-midday £35
Buttonhole workshop Friday May 26, 2pm-4pm £35
Pick-Your-Own Flowers Friday May 26, midday-4pm, £15 per container
Hand-tied Bouquet workshop Saturday May 27, 10am-midday £55
