A New Season

Last year was our first year selling dried flowers, having previously grown fruits and vegetables for farmers' markets, distributors, groceries, restaurants, auctions, etc.

This year, we're expanding the one acre of flowers to include more variety and some herbs.

We use the same methods for growing flowers as we did for vegetables, starting plants in a seed house in February, then moving them to a greenhouse in March. From there they are transplanted into raised beds. Every several days we check the plants for insects or disease, and, if needed, we spray affected plants with pyganic or spinosad, which are OMRI approved for organic growing. Most of the time, there's no need to spray at all. By the end of July, the flowers start blooming.

Once the flowers are blooming, we harvest late morning and bring them into the drying shed to be bunched and hung to dry. When dried, they're ready for bouquet-making and shipment.

Shipping and handling fees are included in the shipping costs. Boxes cost $1- $3, and singe-item packages take 15 minutes or more to prepare for shipping.

Overpayment on shipping costs is generally refunded to the customer's PayPal account, unless double-boxing has been used or more than 15 minutes have been required for packaging the order.

International shipping is not available due to customs regulations that prohibit the shipping of many dried flowers because of possible transmission of pests and diseases.
Additional policies and FAQs
Dried flowers are especially fragile the longer that they are dried. As of April 2016, the flowers listed in this shop have been dried for 5-6 months. To keep flowers in tact, you can lightly spray flowers with hairspray. You can also use floral spray from a crafts store for added protection.

Custom orders are for additional numbers of items in the current listings. At present, designing of bouquets as part of a custom order is not available.
