Ask an Expert: Growing Superb Celosia — Strategies and Tips

June 12, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

Join us for the June 2023 Ask an Expert session, taught by Laura Beth Resnick of Butterbee Farm. Laura Beth grows celosia a million different ways: Inside, outside, pinched, not pinched, many successions, and lots of varietals. During this talk, Laura Beth will focus on the different approaches used at Butterbee Farm, the end goal of each strategy, favorite varieties, and problems she’s faced along with solutions. She’ll also discuss ideal harvest and postharvest processes. Celosia is fairly easy to grow, but having great quality at harvest isn’t quite as simple. Having great quality celosia is an easy way to set yourself apart as a trustworthy grower to customers.

Laura Beth Resnick is the founder and owner of Butterbee Farm, a five acre flower farm in northern Maryland. Following regenerative practices, Butterbee Farm provides locally grown flowers for florists and flower lovers from Baltimore to Washington, D.C. Growing in greenhouses, high tunnels,

and fields, Butterbee Farm specializes in high quality cuts for use in design. Laura Beth has served as President of the MCFGA (Maryland Cut Flower Growers Association) and Secretary for the Board of the ASCFG (Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers), and continues to write for their quarterly magazine. She speaks regularly at conferences, garden clubs, and arboretums, and mentors new growers through Future Harvests Beginning Farmer Training Program.
