Light Apricot Chantilly Snapdragons and Feverfew: The Perfect Match

I've been playing with arranging these gorgeous light apricot chantilly snapdragons all this week. The bright, peachy stems are so lovely alone - but work exceptionally well with nearly every other flower that I'm able to combine them with in a vase. However, one of my absolute favorite combinations involves the single feverfew. Let's take…

My Favorite Arrangement of the Season, Thus Far…

Arranging flowers is not something that I really consider myself to be good at. Sure, some vases end up looking better than others, but the things that I make are a far cry from the ones that "real" flower farmers make. Even still, there are certain times when it feels like the stars align and…

Larkspur and Feverfew Cut Flower Arrangement – Cut Flower Garden

Some days, I feel completely defeated when it comes to flower "farming". By the time summer finally arrives, it's a constant battle with the weeds and with the mosquitoes. Emphasis on the mosquitoes. When I headed out into the garden this particular day, I knew that I was in for a race against the rain.…

Flower Seedlings in the Hoophouse – Ready for Winter – Cut Flower Farm

  Luckily, I was finally able to finish planting the hardy annual cut flower seedlings into the hoophouse. Though most of these flowers are annuals, I did include some biennial flowers under cover, as well. Here's hoping for a beautiful spring and summer.

Growing Feverfew Flowers from Seed – Cut Flower Farm

Since first growing feverfew, it has quickly become one of my absolute favorite flowers. Not only are they insanely easy to grow, but their cold tolerance makes them a sure winner for the cut flower farm (and home flower garden). Though feverfew is often grown as an annual, many actually consider it to be a…

Planting Hardy Annual Flowers from Seed into the Hoop House – Progress – Cut Flower Farm

I feel like I've been saying it for months now, but I'm so far behind. In a perfect world, the hoophouse would have been planted and ready for winter back in October. Between the weather and the busy thanksgiving holiday - it just didn't happen. I was finally able to get things situated last weekend.…
