Buckets full of colourful homegrown and locally sourced Dahlias will be welcoming you when you arrive at the studio, along with homemade cake and a floral mocktail, after which you are handed scissors to be let loose picking your own dahlias as well as all the other delights our cutting patch has on offer.
