About Lisa and Program Topics
Lisa Mason Ziegler, a home gardener turned cut-flower farmer began growing field-grown cut flowers in 1998 on less than 1 acre in Newport News, Virginia. In 2010 Lisa’s garden grew into a farm, now close to 4 acres. During the growing season, this farm yields over 10,000 stems of flowers each week. Her flowers are sold to florists, upscale supermarkets and through her programs “Garden Share” and “Bouquet Subscription Drop-off” that are in their 13th year.
Lisa shares her knowledge and passion for gardening through programs. Her audiences have included flower and garden show guests, radio listeners, garden clubs, master gardeners, horticultural groups, commercial growers, civic groups, and others.
In 2005 Lisa launched an online garden shop, The Gardener’s Workshop, offering the gardening and flower arranging tools and supplies she uses in her own gardens and cut flower operation.
Lisa’s program and pop-up shops incorporate her simple methods of gardening that inspire and delight.
