BRITISH FLOWER CUTTING WORKSHOP
SUNDAY 9 SEPTEMBER
The summer season might have come to an end, but the art of British flower cutting is still in full bloom at Middleton Lodge’s Kitchen Garden, and it’s just the ticket to get your creative minds working this September. This British Flower Cutting Workshop will start with a talk from Head Gardner, Andrew Webb, where you’ll learn how to grow cut flowers in your gardens all year round. Kirsty from The Wilde will follow on, demonstrating how to arrange your very own beautifully natural bouquets. Bring your own apron, test your flower knowledge and leave with a gorgeous floral arrangement.

Join Wynyard Hall’s experts this September for a Chutney & Preserve Making Workshop where you’ll pick up all the tricks of the trade before foraging for the perfect ingredients and making your very own jars to take home and enjoy.
