In case you missed it, yesterday I wrote a blog post about all my favorite #greenery we grow on the farm throughout the season. Take a look at the link in profile- You might get some new ideas for your own farm/design studio/wedding designs.
And tell me farmers: what’s your favorite green ingredient to grow? Florists: what are you dying to get your hands on in 2019?

After a cloudy rainy week, I am so happy to see the sunshine today. My flower season had ended around 10/25. I had Honeyglow heirloom mums just starting to bloom at that time. I talked to a couple of florists about the heirloom mums. They said mums were only 41 cents from their wholesaler, and I should grow flowers that are hard for them to find from the wholesaler. I was a little discouraged. When Coral Charm, Seatons Je Dore, and Apricot Alexis started to bloom, I realized how different these were from your regular chrysanthemums. I recently went back out to a couple different florists. They loved Apricot Alexis. The copper gold color catches your eye and is amazing. Apricot Alexis is a very productive plant. Those florists encouraged me to grow these and more in that bronze color next year. I need the space for something else in the field, so I am digging all the heirloom mums up and overwintering them in my basement. Once I find their place in my cut flower field, I could leave them in the ground with lots of leaves or mulch for winter protection since I am in zone 7. It is probably still a good idea to take some cuttings of your favorite ones just in case they do not make it through the winter. I am growing more varieties next year such as River City, Crimson Tide, Heather James, Fort Vancouver, Evening glow, Norton Vic, Mocha, and Annie Girl. I will be ordering them from King’s Mums. They do extend my flower season for 3 more weeks into November. Stem length was at least 22 inches. The plants are very sturdy and hold up well in the open field. I hope I can combine them with eucalyptus and late sunflowers. It will involve covering them with agribon for frost protection. Fresh flowers like Apricot Alexis are hard for a local florist to not love! #freshflowers#apricotflowers#heirloommums#pursuepretty#flowersmakemehappy#local#localflowers#fieldtovase#flowerfarmer#ncflowers#flowersofinstagram#fallflowers#inspiredbyflowers#cutflowers#flowerlover#gardenbeeflowers#kingsmums
What do you get when a flower farm and a lavender farm come together? Loveliness in sight and scent! Together with the @englishlavenderfarm, we are offering these 18" dried hydrangea and lavender wreaths for your long-term enjoyment! DM here to reserve yours, or find them at the English Lavender Farm's market booths and the Poinsettia Festival!
Chrysanthemums offer such a diverse palette 🎨 of attractive colors and unique shapes. Pictured here is a variety that features lovely pink/purple florets on an irregular incurving bloom.
A crappy day? Time to get some riveting content for you all up on the blog.
Today we are talking ‘greenery’ !! Quite a task to use my voice to appeal to other florists and vendors, farmers, and engaged persons, but I do think there is some good stuff in there for everyone. Go check it out at the (still and forever misspelled) link in profile. 🖖
