Today’s episode features a takeover of our popular “Ask a Flower Farmer” live Q&A session on Instagram, which was hosted this time by Daniel Schavey of Petal Pickers Flower Co. in Greenville, SC. Daniel is a highly-successful 6th-year flower farmer growing in zone 8a and an alumnus of many of The Gardener’s Workshop’s online courses. Here, Daniel answers a broad range of questions on topics such as soil blocking, high tunnel growing, seasonal growing, succession planting, ranunculus tips, and popular trends in the flower world.
