Build a Perfect Bouquet!

Growing beautiful flowers in your garden is the goal of most gardeners. Being able to bring those flowers indoors and enjoy them throughout the year is the added benefit of a 'cutting' garden. We found author, college instructor and plant lover, Linda Beutler in the perennial garden at Clackamas Community College to learn how to build a perfect bouquet.

Linda is the author of the Timber Press (1-800-327-5680) book 'Garden to Vase: Growing and Using Your Own Cut Flowers' and is an instructor at the college. She walked us through the garden and showed us how easy it is to cut and create your own quick bouquet. This seemed very easy and it probably is, but we were very intimidated! If you share the same fears you can help get rid of them next weekend, the August 24, 2010 at 10am, at The Oregon Garden (1-877-674-2733) in Silverton.

Linda will be teaching a course on the Summer Cutting Garden and will be sharing some of her secrets! If you would like to get ideas for building your own cutting garden or how to make fantastic bouquets, you can sign up on the Oregon Garden website. She will also be teaching a class this fall at Clackamas Community College and she welcomes everyone to sign up there as well!
