Learn about ‘Creating a Cutting Garden’ at August BYA Meeting


From Special Reports

Creating a cutting garden requires talent, time and skill, according to David Brown, the greenhouse manager and floral designer at Hills and Dales Estate in LaGrange.

He will lecture on how to grow a cutting garden at the Aug. 10 meeting of the Backyard Association, sponsored by the Master Gardener Extension Volunteers. “Creating a Cutting Garden,” a free presentation, begins at 7 p.m.

Before coming to Hills & Dales in 2014, Brown taught high school horticulture for 30 years and was then an adjunct instructor at Southern Crescent Technical College for eight years. He also owned and operated his own floral shop.

Brown has a bachelor of science degree in Horticulture and Agriculture Education from Purdue University. He uses his wealth of experience and knowledge as the estate’s Greenhouse Manager and Floral Designer. He currently lives in Fayette County.

Admission to the Backyard Association meeting is free, and you need not register in advance to attend unless you want to be registered for the door prizes, usually plants and gardening supplies.

The Backyard Association is an educational program sponsored by the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs).

The presentations are free to the public and are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at UGA Extension – Coweta County, 255 Pine Road, Newnan. Please call the Extension office at (770) 254-2620 for reservations and to register for door prizes.
