Event Details

Presented by Elisabeth Cary

Join flower farmer Elisabeth Cary and learn about her successes and failures on her 5 year journey to develop her home cutting garden into a micro flower farm for fun and profit. She will share practical information including selecting the best plants, scheduling a growing sequence, and balancing annuals, perennials and biennials for a long seasonal bloom. Elizabeth will touch on layout, pest and weed control, industry sources for seeds, plugs and bulbs, harvesting, storage and garden wrap up. This program is for anyone crazy enough to start a flower business or a “mad” home gardener in love with flowers. Now is the time to plan your 2023 cutting garden!

Elisabeth Cary was formerly the Director of Education at the Berkshire Botanical Garden and has been gardening for over 30 years. She is the owner and founder of Cooper Hill Flower Farm, a micro flower farm in Sheffield, Massachusetts.
