Why Grow Cool Flowers?

Start with Success - Choose the Perfect Structure

Cool-season hardy annuals not only survive but thrive in cool-to-cold conditions

Boost Profits - Extend Flower Production Year-Round

They're some of our favorite flowers, like Poppies, Larkspur, and Bells of Ireland

Maximize Yields - Optimize Crop Selection & Rotation

Planted at the proper time, they lead to earlier blooms, longer stems, more pest and disease resistance, and more abundance overall

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between School courses and Workshops?

Workshops vary from sixty minutes to over 5 hours of instruction, see individual courses for details. Each of these courses offers lots of valuable information on a specific topic that you can digest in a short amount of time and put into action right away.

School course content is much more comprehensive and covers broad topics. School courses are meant to serve as a long-term reference tool that you will use all throughout the course of your flower farming journey. Each course includes 6 modules, which each contain multiple video training sessions, instructor worksheets, and handouts, and an FAQ archive. All of the course sessions (including the FAQs) are searchable by keyword, so you can always find and go directly to the information that you need at any given time.

Does this workshop include floral design training?

No, this workshop does not provide training on floral design or bouquet making. Its primary goal is to teach the Cool Flowers concept.

Why would I buy an online course when there is so much free information on the internet?

It’s true there is a TON of free information floating around out there. But is it reliably correct information? Does it fit your situation, your goals, your experience level? How much time do you have to sort through info from various sources and decide what fits your needs? Purchasing an online course from someone with decades of experience gives you instant access to an organized, detailed, reliably accurate set of lessons to save you time and energy, so you can focus on learning rather than researching.

Do I have unlimited access?

Yes, you have lifetime unlimited access to your purchased courses.

Do I have to watch at a certain time?

You can watch the courses anytime at your convenience. Purchased on-demand courses will appear in your library immediately and will always be there for viewing.

Do you offer course discounts?

Yes, once you are part of our course family (owning any online school or workshop) you will be eligible for $50 off additional Online Flower Farming & Business School courses.

I live outside of the USA, may I purchase a course?

Yes, our online courses are available internationally.

This sounds great, but can it be done in MY region/growing conditions?

YES! We strive to make the lessons in these courses universally applicable across all regions and growing conditions (as proven by our students who range from Alaska to the Tropics!). Rather than just telling you what to do, our courses will teach you how to assess your environment and make decisions based on your specific conditions.
