Over the past summer and fall, I had the amazing opportunity to work alongside Clare Monica Day to create visual content for her digital course in cultivating cut flowers. Clare is a master gardener and floral designer who I have been lucky enough to learn from and work with over the last few seasons. Days in her garden never felt like work and the hours would disappear as we arranged florals in her studio. Her knowledge in both growing and designing flowers is truly inspiring.
With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to be planning your garden. The course she has created is a step-by-step guide in designing, creating and tending a cut flower garden using the best organic techniques. You will also learn everything you need to know to grow a mix of annuals, perennials, bulbs, and flowering shrubs and vines. Registration for her course begins this Thursday, March 10th and closes on the 14th so make sure to sign up! Also, for those who register, you will have access to my Q+A with Clare all about how to photograph your garden and arrangements.
Below are some of my favourite images from our time in the garden together. I hope they bring you inspiration and excitement for the growing season ahead.
