Over the last several years we have received many requests from our customers who are interested
in trying their hand at growing some of our spring flowers. This year we have decided to make that happen and are looking forward to offering a fall kit of bulbs & seeds for you to plant along with us! The flowers we are offering in this course are the same varities of flowers that we grow on our farm. We have put together a mix a some of our favorite types of ranunculus, anemones, tulips, daffodils, paper whites, sweet peas, bachelor buttons, and larkspur. Once you pick up your growing kit we will help you to get started with how to plant and care for each of these flowers. Each month from November through March we will be planting a new (or several new) types of flowers. We will send you planting instructions via email but all video instructions will be done through our Instagram stories and saved to our highlights reel so that you can access them as references. This class is for locals and will be based on our experience with growing in Ohio's weather. We will be showing you how to grow in the garden and landscape so therefore a greenhouse will not be necessary. We have selected varities that are cold hardy and will help instruct you with the correct time to plant them. Each of these flower types vary from easy to more difficult to grow. Some gardening experience is helpful but we will do our best to help you along throughout the months. We will also encourage you to tag us in your own Instagram stories and let us know how your flowers are doing!
In your Grow with Us kit you can expect to find -
15 Ranunculus corms + perlite for pre-sprouting
15 Anemone corms + vermiculite for pre-spouting
25 Tulip Bulbs
25 Specialty Daffodil Bulbs
10 Drumstick Allium Bulbs
5 Paperwhite Narcissus Bulbs + bag of river rocks for forcing
1 Pack Sweet Pea Seeds
1 Pack Bachelor Button Seeds
1 Pack Larkspur Seeds
The cost for the course will be $165 and once all of our spring bulbs arrive and we get everything packaged up, we will contact with local pickup information. We are anticipating this to be late October or Early November.
You will be able to pickup your kit from either our flower farm in Midland or Hill's Compounding Pharmacy located in Milford. This first year we will be offering a small number of kits and they will go on sale tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. through our website.
We hope that you are able to join us and we look forward to growing with you!
