Peachey Trudell’s James Island Garden
Classes limited to 12 participants per session
One of our most popular new Summer Workshop Series instructors is back! Join Peachey Trudell of One Wild Acre in her beautiful James Island garden to learn how to create a cut flower garden at your home.
In this workshop, participants will learn the process of preparing for and planting hardy annuals in Autumn for Spring blooms in their home cutting gardens. We will focus on the best varieties to grow successfully in our southern climate as we tour the specialty-cut flower garden at One Wild Acre on James Island. Topics will include cool season flower varieties, how to direct sow and transplant, plant spacing, and protection while overwintering. This class is intended for home growers who desire adding cut flowers to their gardens and landscape. Seed packets and starter plants selected specifically for cut flowers will be available for purchase.
About Peachey Trudell & One Wild Acre
In the summer of 2017, our family moved into a 1940s home situated on a little more than an acre in a neighborhood just minutes from downtown Charleston. We began working at once to untangle, nurture and enhance the soil and land, which is an ongoing process. As we cultivate a sense of place for our family and flower farm business, we are steadily planting an assortment of flowering shrubs and trees, herbaceous perennials, edibles, favorite annuals, greenery, native plants and heirloom varieties.
One Wild Acre grows a cutting garden for creatives. We offer loose-stem, seasonal market bunches, CSA shares and Design-It-Yourself wedding and event options so that we may pass along the unique styling, meditative arranging, sensory experiences and freedom of expression along to you.
We also collaborate with artisans and small businesses to provide floral elements and ingredients for their craft. These relationships support local makers in our community and celebrate the endless possibilities of flowers. The Slow Flowers Movement encourages a connection to and the purchase of locally grown flowers.
