Buying Our Flowers in 2021
In this time of social distancing, we hope our flowers can brighten your lives with their natural beauty! The flowers we sell are locally grown on our family farm with loving care and using sustainable methods. Mason jar bouquets of mixed flowers will be available weekly during spring, summer and fall for pick up at a location east of Hagerstown, MD, in the Beaver Creek area.
Please sign up for our email to receive more information during the growing season about weekly bouquets, flower and plant availability and more.
What we've been up to:
We are busy planting and planning this year's flowers. We've inventoried our seeds stores, ordered seeds from far and wide (Germany, England and U.S. commercial sellers), ordered some really special flowers from commercial growers and organized all of our planting supplies and so much more. Thousands of tulip and daffodil bulbs have been tucked into the soil and are beginning to sprout, dahlias were dug and stored. Fields have been prepared. The high tunnel was cleaned out in the fall and anemones and ranunculus were planted, and are now coming into full bloom. Sweet peas are sprouting and will sit and wait to jump into growth in spring to give us their beautiful early flowers. Giant Iceland poppies have been seeded, ready to show their enormous papery blooms much earlier this year than last year.
Over the fall and winter I took two online classes from The Gardener's Workshop in Virginia--one from Lisa Mason Ziegler on growing "Cool Flowers" which is what she calls annuals that can be grown over the winter for super early spring flowering and she been full of practical advice on growing flowers for market. Lisa is a very successful flower grower in the Williamsburg, VA area and one of the mother's of the flower farmer movement. Another class, taught by Jennie Love from Love 'n Fresh Flowers, has been absolutely phenomenal. She is a premier wedding florist who grows all her own flowers on an urban Philadelphia lot and I've enjoyed taking in her wisdom, wit and incredible talent. Take a look at her blogs for a rich resource in flower growing if you are interested in that sort of thing. :)
This year we will continue to offer our mason jar bouquets at the springhouse on Tuesdays. Please check back and feel free to follow us on Instagram for more information.
As always, our flowers are fresh, locally grown, and grown with care for you and the environment.
