by | Jun 29, 2023

Did you come to The Gardener’s Workshop’s Open Farm event this past weekend? If so, we are thrilled you were able to join us! Even if you were not able to attend, would you like a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the day’s happenings? Today, Layne talks to flower experts and online course instructors Dave Dowling, Ellen Frost, Val Schirmer, and Lisa regarding their experiences at the Open Farm 2023 event. She chats with these special guests about frequently asked questions they received, what visitors seemed to find the most interesting, and each person’s favorite part of the day. Dave and Val share some hydrangea and amaryllis tips, and Layne and Hrach (Layne’s husband) talk about the seed scene at the warehouse and discuss seed storage, deer-resistant cool flowers, and the most popular seeds of the day. Ellen shares some design tips and discusses the importance of scent in bouquets, and Lisa gives advice on how to keep your flowers upright when it rains. Whether you were able to join us for the Open Farm or not, listen to the podcast to hear about some of the highlights of this special day!
