Sample a slice of Hillwood’s bountiful Greenhouse with this exclusive floral design workshop. During Marjorie Merriweather Post’s time, Hillwood gardeners began propagating chrysanthemums for fresh cut flowers. The 55-year tradition continues today, with more than 50 different types of mums grown on the Estate. 

This hands-on class starts with a short tour of the working Greenhouse. You’ll learn how flower crops are harvested and prepared for use, as well as learning which Hillwood-grown chrysanthemums will augment flowers ordered in for your arrangement. Participants will then learn practical floral design techniques for floral arrangements in vases, while creating a stunning arrangement to take home.
