Updates – Sweet Peas, Lisianthus, Catmint, and Planting Time

Hi Lovelies, I hope that everyone is doing quite well. I've been on the road to recovery for the past week after a quick visit to the emergency room, yuck! With this, I've been away from the flowers and so much has gone on without me. Though I'm technically still supposed to be on bed…

Movin’ Along

Hi Lovelies, Just thought I would take the time to quickly check in. Last time I took to writing, everything was pretty stressful. I didn't have a place to grow anything and precious time was slipping away from me as I frantically searched. I'm happy to say, that though I've lost a few succession plantings,…

More Rain on my Parade

Hi Lovelies, Hope the day is finding you well. I can say that things are looking up a little here - but that's only because the internet connection is finally back and I can actually sit down and collect my thoughts. I went into this year being extremely thoughtful. By that, I mean, I planned.…

Field Preparation: Weed Barrier Fabric

Hi Lovelies, Hope everyone is doing quite well. I've tried to write this post a few times and I've managed to get myself distracted by a bunch of documentaries on Netflix. Now, I know I need to focus. Can I just mention, once again, how much I hate pulling weeds? Can you believe that some…

Out with the old, in with the new.

Hi Lovelies! It's that time of week again, and by that I mean - it's raining here and I actually have the time to breathe for a second. It's been another week of orders rolling in, mostly some perennials that I really, really wanted. I'm almost certain that my mail carrier really dislikes me by…

Tulips, tulips, tulips!

Hi lovelies ­čÖé I'm just going to go ahead and be honest - we're all friends here, right? The vase life trials for tulips will simply not be happening. In life, and in planning a rather large expansion to the cut flower garden I've had to reassess my priorities pretty often. ┬áThis would probably explain…

Just Passing the Time

I don't know why it is that I always manage to post on holidays. Maybe it's because it's the only time that I feel like I can gather my thoughts. This post isn't even about anything specific, so you may want to click away. The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind. This time, I'm…

Harvest & Handling: Daffodils – Daffodils as Cut Flowers

Hello lovelies! I hope this post finds everyone well! Things have certainly been busy here. After a pretty much set back, I've been busy playing a mean game of catch up. The weather has been gorgeous. GORGEOUS. However, the extra warmth means that a lot of the flowers have suddenly decided to burst open with…

The Beginning of Spring Flowers – Daffodils, Dutch Iris, Tulips and Anemones

The first table vase of the season. At last, I'm finally sitting down to write a legitimate first post on the new blog! ┬áThe weather has been so nice lately and I have been in a literal mad-dash to start the seeds that need to be started. I'm definitely a little behind in the game,…
