It’s always fun to see which of the dozens of dahlia varieties we grow will bloom first. This year it’s Linda’s Baby out of the gate! She had a bit of a lead on account of the fact that she’s grown in the hoophouse. We reserve some of our precious covered space to grow these coveted varieties. Next year we should have plenty of tubers of Linda’s Baby, Peaches ‘n Cream, Sweet Natalie & Castle Drive to sell in our online shop.
After sailing the ocean blue for years, we settled, as sailors often do, on an island. As luck would have it, the islands’ mild maritime climate made it the perfect place to grow flowers.
Although we now plow through fields rather than waves, our close relationship with nature has prevailed and continues to inspire us. Like the old saying goes, “Bread feeds the body but flowers feed the soul”.
Thanks to a creative upbringing between an artist and an engineer, floral design and building floral structures came naturally to me. My past work as a researcher helps with trialing and propagating the zillions of seeds, bulbs & cuttings we use. The farm runs smoothly because my amazing husband can build and fix anything from a greenhouse to a tractor.
Fields of peonies, roses, sunflowers and more provide an abundant source of blooms for our unique arrangements. Naturally beautiful and sustainably grown, our flowers benefit the local economy and environment. Enjoy a bunch today!
Flowers available from April to October. Order online or call us directly; Farmstand at 2600 Enchanted Forest Road, also for sale at the Orcas Food Coop after Mothers Day.
