Cut Flowers

Flowers are available for u-pick mid-July through September. Bouquets are $8 for all you can fit in an eight-inch twist tie. Baskets, snips, and twist ties are provided.

Flowers are a source of joy, pure and simple. We grow over seventy certified organic cottage garden ornamentals, herbs, and edibles selected for their aesthetic charm, grace, and whimsy, with a full spectrum of vibrant and delicate hues.  

 

Farm favorites:

Amaranth, Bachelor Buttons, Bells of Ireland, Calendula, Cosmos, Dahlias, Dill, Lavatera, Licorice Mint, Sunflowers, Sweet Peas, Yarrow, Zinnias, and Zulu Daisies. Dahlias are the feature of our cutting garden ~ over thirty types, shapes, sizes and colors for casual and formal occasions.

 

In addition to our tried-and-trues, we introduce new varieties every year to keep it interesting! 

 

We source seeds and tubers from our own fields and select certified organic suppliers.

Dahlias

Bring grace to the garden.

Planting Dahlias

  • Dahlias prefer full sun and well-draining soil

  • Plant tubers in spring after danger of frost when soil temperatures reach 60°F (typically May)

  • Space tubers 18-24" apart and plant 4-6" deep

  • Lay the tuber flat on its side with the eye pointing up

  • Do not water at planting time ~ start watering once the tuber sprouts above ground (2x per week)

  • Do not overfeed and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers 

  • For nice cut flower stems, pinch out the center shoot above the third set of leaves once they reach 12-16"

  • Enjoy continuous bloom until frost
