Marissa and Alex | September 21, 2017

I’m beyond excited to share a few of my favorite floral photos from Marissa and Alex’s gorgeous May wedding! Everything was so beautiful–the color combination of blush, mint, and cream (with just a touch of peach) always makes a classic and lasting impression.

Garden roses, peonies, stock, ranunculus, and Queen Anne’s lace created a lovely foundation for all of the arrangements. These flowers, combined with the draping on the arch and the garland on the barn doors, really pulled everything together nicely.

Local Flower Deliveries | September 2, 2017

Now that our fields are full of pretty summer flowers, we can make local deliveries–Chapel Hill and Durham only, but we’re hoping to expand into Raleigh soon. If you need a beautiful arrangement of flowers cut straight from the field, give us a call! Flower selection will vary based on what we have growing at the time of the order, but we’ll arrange everything beautifully and deliver in our signature blue pottery. Pricing ranges from $75-$150, and if we aren’t in your delivery area, on-farm pickup is also an option.

Flower Power | August 12, 2016

A few months ago I experimented with soil blocking to see if it would be an effective method for starting our flower seeds. It was extremely successful, and over 1,000 zinnia and celosia seeds germinated quickly.

With the farm under construction, it was challenging to find a spot for a few flower beds. However, once the seedlings were ready to be planted, I managed to squeeze in a temporary location so that I’d have summer and fall blooms this year. I’m really looking forward to having the farm’s infrastructure in place, and finally having the proper space for our flower fields and farm equipment! I’ve been happily pouring over seed catalogues and placing orders; a few thousand tulip bulbs will soon be heading our way to place in the permanent beds this fall.

Transplant shock in the current beds was minimal (one of the many benefits of soil blocking). We just prepped the beds, laid down the landscape fabric for weed control, and carefully planted the seedlings. They grew quickly, and we’ve just harvested our first blooms.

Here are the plants about a month after transplanting:

And now the flowers are a butterfly paradise!

We couldn’t resist gathering some of the flowers and creating a few beautiful arrangements.

And here are the final results! Such pretty, summery mixes, using only flowers and greenery from our farm:
