Event

Planning for an Early Cut Flower Season, Season Extension and Climate Change
Join Regional Small Farms as we dive into cut flowers with Stacy Marshall of Petal & Pitchfork Farm in Poulsbo, WA. Combining an interactive presentation with a walk-through of the annual and perennial fields and tunnels, we will talk through tunnel growing, planning in late summer and early fall for a robust spring cut flower season and the benefits of plugs and perennials. A thread throughout this session will be the issue of climate change and how growers can best mitigate issues of unseasonably cool and wet temperatures, field flooding and unpredictability in germination and maturation times.

This event is geared towards commercial cut flower growers who have at least 2-3 years of experience planning, growing, harvesting and selling. This foundation will make the concepts and discussions more accessible for individuals and the group.

Discussion will be focused on:

   - Use of high and modified low tunnels for season extension and cool springs

   - Cold hardy annuals and perennials for a robust spring season

   - Perennials for cutting and climate resiliency

   - Germination vs. plugs

   - Working with climate change variables

Please only register for the farm walk if you plan to attend as there is limited space for this event. If you register and are unable to come, we kindly ask that you inform us at least 48 hours before the event so that we may open up registration to other interested farmers.  

If you go to register and there are no spaces available, please email jess.sappington@wsu.edu to be put on our cancellation list.
