2019 Flower Memberships

I know it can be hard to think about 2019 when we still have three months left in 2018, but the truth is, a flower farmer has been prepping for the 2019 growing season for a couple of months already. I was methodically starting about 200 seeds a day in early September, and now I have thousands of seedlings that are going into the ground for their long winter nap.

It’s Time to Sign Up for Bouquet and Bucket Subscriptions

I don’t know about anyone else, but all I can think about lately are the warmer, brighter days of spring and the beginning of our growing season.
