Learn simple tools and strategies that you can use immediately to grow better flowers.
Imagine for a moment walking through your garden at sunrise, with an abundance of flowers blooming around you and pollinators dancing from stem to stem. Imagine carrying these stems to your studio to create a work of art imbued with freshness and beauty. Imagine sharing your garden and flowers with new students, clients, or couples who are getting married and want the source of their flowers to reflect their values.
All of this is possible for you when you know how to garden well.
As much you love idea of wandering through the garden picking flowers, the work and skill required to create a great garden can be daunting. Not to mention the time it takes to learn the intricacies of floriculture. Plus, most gardening information is geared towards perennial flowers (many of which aren’t good for cutting), or for people growing on a large scale, or for people who want to grow vegetables.
Until now, there hasn't been a place to learn how to cultivate
a small, diverse cutting garden.
With Garden to Vase, you'll learn that it's possible to create a thriving cutting garden that doesn’t take a tonne of time, or years of trial and error to figure out, so long as you have the right information and the right techniques at your disposal.
Garden to Vase is a 4 week digital course in cultivating cut flowers
With a curriculum designed exclusively for the small scale cut flower gardener you can create a beautiful, thriving garden and grow any cut flower you want.
Garden to Vase is a step by step course that gives you all the tools and techniques you need to cultivate cut flowers. But it also gives you the principles behind those techniques, so you know WHY you’re doing it.
The course covers everything I wish I'd known when I started. I stand in your shoes and answer the questions you're wondering about, and the questions you didn't even know to ask.
Garden to Vase isn't about any and all flowers - it's specifically about those that work well as cut flowers - the annuals, perennials, bulbs, flowering vines, herbs, shrubs and foliages that are great for a cutting garden.
The curriculum is delivered electronically via a private membership site with text, images, video, downloadable pdf exercises and a forum. The content is delivered over four weeks, but membership includes evergreen access to the course materials.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT GARDEN TO VASE
Garden to Vase is a wonderful course. This information will serve me and my business for years to come!
Kristen Carrier, Lavender & Lace Flower Farm
The Garden to Vase course has completely opened my eyes to a new approach to gardening. I'm so excited to apply what I've learned about building my soil and garden ecosystem and to see my garden thrive. This course has saved me countless hours of research and that alone is money very well spent. I would DEFINITELY recommend this course! It's an incredible wealth of knowledge for gardeners of any level and because of it I know this will be my most successful gardening year yet!
Kim Spears, Busy Bee Farm & Florals
Until now I've been self-learning piecemeal from books and seed-packets about how to grow each flower and what it needed...it's felt overwhelming and tedious and I've found myself doubting whether I could start and take on a cutting garden of my own.
With Garden to Vase I came away feeling not only prepared and excited to begin, but also deeply inspired! Clare's expert approach of caring for your garden as a system from the soil to the roots up to the flowers makes so much sense, and the course offered heaps more than I expected. I can't put a price on what I've learned but honestly, at this tuition, the course is a steal! And knowing that I have all the materials to refer back to makes it that much more valuable.
