It seems that as soon as the snow melts and the sun starts shining, we’re all itching to see those bulbs and buds start popping out of hibernation. And over at the Cylburn Arboretum, they don’t even think we’re being unreasonable! Locally grown flowers in March? The arboretum’s answer: “Of course!” Want to get the skinny on where and how to find local blooms this early in the season? You can learn all about it at their Spring Fling on March 29th. They’ll discuss everything you’ve ever wanted to know about locally grown flowers and some of the farmers that grow them.
The event will conclude with teaching attendees some design techniques to make these early spring blooms look extra special. Local Color Flowers owner Ellen Frost will begin with a short presentation about the types of flowers that are available locally (within 100 miles of Baltimore) so you know what to look for when you’re on the hunt. You’ll also learn about our region’s flower farmers and where you can buy local flowers. After all, we happily embrace local food, local wine, and of course, local business. Locally grown flowers are no different. They help our economy, beautify our landscape and nourish Maryland’s agricultural traditions. And of course, they’ll lend a unique and unquestionably Maryland look to any home or event.
The Cylburn Arboretum’s Spring Fling takes place on Sunday, March 29th. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.cylburn.org.
