buckets of blooms - Planning A Cutting Patch

Saturday 16th September 10am - 12pm,  Tuesday 19th September 7pm - 9pm

On this two-hour course, we guide you through planning a cutting garden, sharing ideas about what to grow and when, to give you bucketfuls of flowers throughout the season. You'll leave with a plan of your future plot and a sowing and planting schedule. Light refreshments are provided, and a selection of seeds and seedlings will be available to buy to get your cutting patch off to a good start.

If you have a particular spot earmarked for your cutting patch, please bring along rough measurements to help you draw up your plan. 


Combine the Saturday morning course with the afternoon 'Making a Hand-Tie Bouquet' course for a great day out.
