Curated Cut Flower Summer Plant Collection

$95.00

Calling all aspiring flower gardeners! Love flowers and always wanted to try growing some of the varieties you see from us on your own? You’re in luck.

We put together a carefully curated cut flower package for our local garden loving customers.

Details:

A specially curated package of 32 plant plugs, made up of 6-7 varieties of annual cut flowers that will bloom for you from typically summer to early fall. They will require full sun (or at least almost full sun!) in order to grow to flowering maturity.

We have put together a list of flowers you might see in the collection below, but the final choices will be based on how the plugs grow for us. Every so often we get a failure and need to sub. Regardless, you will get a great collection of healthy plugs that will thrill you when they bloom. This collection below is very similar to what was sold last year.

Also, this year you have the options to add in 3  dahlia tubers of our selection to round out your annual garden this year for enjoyment or cutting!

What plants do I get?!

Some examples:

Feathery Plume or Cockscomb Celosias

Specialty Rose/Orange/Peach/Blush Zinnias

Branching Gomphrena (dries so well also)

Peachy/Pinky/Rose/White Strawflowers

Bicolor/Cranberry/Picotee/Double White Cosmos

Dill/Ammi/or other filler style flower

Statice

Fluffy Scabiosa

Ageratum

Why is this special?

We are giving you a specially curated ‘Easy to Grow’ selection direct from our very own cut flower plugs, so you will get the same exact flowers we will be growing in our fields this year. You cannot find these flowers at the local nursery-they are specifically grown for cut flowers.

Our zinnias aren’t the common bright orange types, but specialty peaches and rose. Everything is designed to grow alongside one another and bloom at similar times in our climate and give you a bloom time across a period of 6-10 weeks.

You don’t start these from seeds, we do that for you, and we treat them as our babies until they get into your hands.

Do I get instructions?

Yes! Along with your cut flower kit will come a full page of planting and growth instructions.

These collections will be ready for pickup estimated around mid-later May, and should be planted out within a week or so to be sure you get flowers as soon as possible. Please be sure to prep your bed when we send you the email about pickups coming up.

NEW: This year we are also adding the option to add-on 3 mixed dahlia tubers, our choice from our very own dahlia tubers we plant out in our field. Dahlia make a great combo with these cut flowers in vases—but they will most likely not start blooming until around August—whereas your cut flowers should start in July.

What size of space do I need and how many flowers will I get?

These plants can fit neatly in a small space. You can put all 32 of them within a 6 x8′ space or similar.

What if I want more flowers than this?

The goal was to price and put together a ‘starter’ package for someone who just wanted to dabble in growing some plants for cutting this year, nothing overwhelming- just fun to try. So if you want MORE flowers than listed above, simply order more than one package. Double or triple the fun!

Don’t forget you can add the dahlia tubers in to make your bouquets really special.

Thanks so much for your support and love of our little farm! It’s because of you that I constantly strive to think up new ideas on how to bring flowers to our customers– I know how much people love our flowers, and want to encourage you to grow your own for fun as well!
