   You can learn how to grow great flowers throughout the seasons by attending a seminar and demonstration by Chris Lueking of Woodlawn, IL on Saturday, August 24 at 10:00 a.m. here at Plantscape. Chris and her daughters Cassandra, Kiara, and Callie started their own cut flower business, “Flower Girls” flower farm, three years ago and grow fresh flowers in a high tunnel and in the field for farmers markets, weddings, and weekly customer sales. They will present information on which flowers to grow in a cutting garden, how to grow the different types of flowers and the best time for cutting them such as in a pre-bloom stage or in full bloom.  They currently grow flowers such as Lisianthus, snapdragons, dahlias, zinnias, cosmos, sunflowers, and cockscomb.
