Nesbitt Memorial Library

Flowers Presentation Packs Room


On October 5, 2004, approximately 40 people attended a presentation on cut-flower design by floriculturist Henry Flowers at the library. Flowers brought a variety of flowers and grasses from the gardens at Festival Hill and demonstrated six unique arrangements. He used a variety of containers and arrangement methods for them, each of which was beautiful and unusual. Flowers received his degree in floriculture from Texas A & M University. He managed the Antique Rose Emporium for several years before becoming director of the gardens at Festival Hill.  He and his wife reside in Chapel Hill.
