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!

We'll be back at the market for Mother's Day Weekend after a break between crops. We'll have cornflowers, baptisia, mixed bouquets and the first peonies of the season at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market this Saturday.

Tulips

We'll have our last tulips of the season this weekend at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market. There will be a short break after tulip season while we wait for the next flush of spring flowers to bloom, so we'll have to miss a week or two after this Saturday.

We'll let you know when we have more spring flowers to bring to the market. It's been a pretty slow start to this spring season, but one warm day can make a world of difference at this time of year!

See you on Saturday!

Tulips

We have mostly Big Smile and Banja Luca tulips this Saturday. Go Big Yellow!

We also want to extend an extra special thank you to everyone who made it out to the farmers market last week on a miserable, wet and cold Saturday morning. We'll be there again this weekend and hope you can make it, too.

See you there!

Tulips

We have fresh cut tulips for our season opener this weekend at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market.

Tulips are our first cut flowers of the spring, soon to be followed by spring flowering perennials and winter annuals. With the wet weather we've been having, there are trays and trays of young seedlings lined up in the cold frame, waiting for the ground to dry. We'll be planting just about everything - lilies, sunflowers, dianthus, lisianthus, snapdragons, bupleurum, zinnias and cosmos and probably more - in the next week or so.

There's no holding it back! Spring is here! And we'll be riding it's wave into the Bardstown Road Farmers Market this Saturday from 8am - noon.

Hope to see you there!

Dahlias, Sunflowers, Ageratum, Cockscomb, Plume Celosia, Tuberose

This Saturday will be our last market day of the season. We're cutting our very last plantings of sunflowers and celosias this week. We have zinnias, tuberose, ageratum, plus a few dahlias and cosmos to go with them.

We hope you can make it down to the Bardstown Rd. Farmers Market this weekend for the last of our late October flowers and bouquets.

Thanks for joining us this season on our Kentucky flower farm!

A peek ahead
winter annuals
These tiny winter annuals will hunker down over the winter, slowly growing roots. Dianthus, cornflowers, larkspur, bupleurum, and other winter annuals will be among the earliest flowers we cut in the spring. Wish them luck!

Sunflowers, Zinnias, Cockscomb, Plume Celosia, Tuberose

As our harvest season inevitably winds down in October, the colors of our summer annuals grow deeper and richer. Our flowers grow and develop more and more slowly in the cooler temperatures and shorter days.

We'll have sunflowers, tuberose, festive zinnias, vibrant celosias, and more fresh cut Kentucky grown flowers this weekend at the Bardstown Rd. Farmers Market.

Hope to see you there!

Dahlia - Karma Corona

We've got pawpaws again this week, and mixed bouquets in warm fall colors. We don't grow a lot of dahlias, just a handful for our mixed bouquets. But this is the time when they bloom best on our farm, during the mild fall weather at the end of the season. Our favorite dahlia has beautiful sunset colors just right for this time of year.

We hope you'll stop by the Bardstown Road Farmers Market this Saturday!

See you there!
