A Woman Spreading her Love of Flowers

“From Garden to Vase,” is the name of the new program thought up by Cheryl Jackson. She is a woman who knows how important flowers can be in a person’s life. This program is a way for her to pass on her knowledge about flowers to others. It is mainly aimed at teaching those who love flowers how to create their own garden for cut flowers. At the end of the program they will even learn to make their own floral arrangements.

A Woman Spreading her Love of Flowers“Anyone who enjoys gardening and wants to enjoy the fruits of their labor, indoors and outdoors. People who just want a better appreciation of flowers. Rather than sticking (flowers) in a Mason jar, come to class and learn how to make something really stunning out of something you’ve grown,” is how Jackson described her vision for the class.

When asked about the greatest mistake people make when arranging their flowers Jackson said, “The mistake that most people make is that they try to put their stems in perpendicular, just straight up and down. It makes it so that you don’t have any control where the stems and the flowers end up, so that you get a columnar look.”

This is why Jackson is going to teach her students to make the so called “armatures.” When arranging flowers using this method, the stems are placed so that they weave together in a great mass. This is what allows bouquets to be dome shaped or even sculptural.

Jackson will be giving design tips along with practical care tips for flowers.
