Have you considered growing flowers as a crop on your small farm? At the Trailside Organic Farm at Cornwall Manor, flower bouquets have proved to be a valuable farm product and a welcome addition to the 2-acre diversified vegetable operation. This webinar will provide an overview of all the steps they take while growing cut flowers for bouquets. Topics will include variety selection, seed starting in the greenhouse, field preparation, choosing necessary equipment, purchasing proper supplies, storage, handling, crafting bouquets, and retail sales.
