Bouquet of the Week
May 17, 2018
Indigo and Yellow Baptisia, Cornflowers, Nigella, Cornflower, Iris
As our winter annuals start to come in, we'll have a wider variety of wildflowers in our bouquets and bunches of flowers. Winter annuals grow in a way that seems entirely alien to the natural order of spring planting for a summer harvest.
Winter annuals are planted in the late summer and fall. The tiny seedlings hunker down for the winter, slowly growing roots, then shoot up as the soil warms in the spring. The winter months can be harsh, and they don't always make it. But these cottage flowers like larkspur, bupleurum, hesperis, nigella, and others are some of the most charming and natural flowers for spring bouquets. They're an integral part of the system on our seasonal and local cut flower farm.
Come see us at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market to see what's in bloom this week at Falling Springs Flowers.
See you there!
