Georgie Newbury left a career in fashion to become a florist-extraordinaire. In addition to writing a number of flower farming books, Newbury found Common Farm Flowers, an eco-friendly, artisan florist company. Newbury is full of recommendations on how to get the absolute best out of your garden.
This Spring, she will be running a workshop at Petersham Nurseries to teach students how to plan and grow their very own flower posy. Whether students want to grow a vegetable patch or create a bouquet of wild flowers, Newbury will assist in curating personal cultivation desires and offer her expertise on everything from colour to scent and even how to attract beneficial insects.
In addition to creating a flower patch to take home, guests who attend this workshop will also get to enjoy a seasonal, two-course meal with prosecco at Petersham Nurseries’ Michelin star glasshouse café.
If you're hoping to develop new agricultural skills but are looking for something a little more... cost friendly, the international award-winning garden centre is offering a range of other gardening workshops. Classes include creating a spring Kokedama, a Japanese moss ball that comes from the bonsai family, kitchen garden planning for spring, and tackling the shadowy areas of a garden through shade gardening.
Enjoy a serene flower utopia away from the hustle and bustle of busy London. Even the most reluctant gardeners are sure to be left feeling inspired after their day Petersham Nurseries. Be warned though, tickets are selling out quick!
