Flower Industry in Western NY
June 19, 2021 –
Nellies Cut Flowers
Nellie Gardner will give us a history of the flower industry here in Western NY and will tell us about the industry today and about her own flower business. She will show us her unique style, having had no formal design classes, as she demonstrates making a bouquet with flowers from her garden.
Growing up on a self sufficient horse powered farm on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, gave Nellie the experience, incentive, and perspective to work her way through college, graduating from Cornell University with no high school education and no money.
Nellie started her own cut flower business in 1992, has restored several Frank Lloyd Wright landscapes and now consults on horticulture and agriculture. Her Flower Barn and shop is in Adams Basin, NY.
