How is it April already! Well actually it is May next week. Time flies when you are having fun and keeping busy I guess!


I thought I would pop on here to give some info about our upcoming workshops that we have planned in May. 


First up we have our Flower Photography workshop with Barbara Leatham on Tuesday May 7th. We will meet at Upavon Village Hall. Barbara will run through your camera settings and then we will head out to My Flower Patch for some practical outdoors photography.

You will need to bring a camera that is able to shoot in Aperture mode (AP or AV) and have exposure compensation +/- . Ideally you will have a macro lens or setting on your camera but that is not essential.

Refreshments included.

Investment £75.00 per person.

Next up we have Grow your own Cut Flowers on Sunday May 12th. We will meet at Upavon Village Hall for a quick introduction, and then we will take a short walk over to the My Flower Patch growing area.

Whilst at the patch we will look at types and varieties of flowers, fillers and foliage that are suitable for cutting. I will tell you about the ones we grow at My Flower Patch and the reasons we have chosen them. I will discuss how we grow at My Flower Patch, and other options that are available. I will share my experience of eight years of growing, and some top tips I have picked up along the way. We will discuss harvesting techniques and conditioning of flowers. Questions are welcomed throughout.

You will be provided with a handout of notes, and you are welcome to take photographs and ask lots of questions.

My Flower Patch is a working flower farm, so you will need to wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear.

The cost will be £50 per person, which includes refreshments and we make a £5 donation per person to The Finlay Foundation.

So if either of those tickle your fancy drop me a line. You can email me on sara@myfowerpatch.co.uk to book your place.
