Sunflowers, Zinnias, Cockscomb, Ageratum, Tuberose, Plume and Wheat Celosia

We've been growing specialty cut flowers on our Kentucky flower farm for more than 20 years and are dedicated to growing professional grade flowers for our local market.

But we also grow all sorts of produce, fruit trees, ornamentals, and other things just for ourselves and just for fun. Every now and then we grow something fun and unique enough that we just have to share it with our friends at the farmers market. We've got one of these special treats with us this week at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market.

Fresh Baby Ginger

Baby ginger is harvested young (of necessity here in Kentucky) before it develops a thick skin or fibrous interior. Baby ginger is tender and juicy, milder than mature ginger from the grocery store, with a bright piquancy. We use it for baking, savory dishes, tea, and candied ginger.

Tender baby ginger should be kept refrigerated to prevent drying and mold. For longer storage, keep it in the freezer. You can break off pieces as needed to grate or slice it straight from the freezer. We keep a year's supply this way until it's ready to harvest again next Fall.

Come see us!

Zinnias, Cosmos, Cockscomb, Ageratum, Tuberose, Amazon Celosia

Amazon Celosias are the latest blooming flower we grow. They don't bloom until September. Depending on the season, we continue cutting them right up until the first frost sometime in October.

These stunning purple spikes are native to the Amazon basin in Brasil, where they rise above the lush tropical growth of lowland meadows. They originated from seeds collected by renowned cut flower grower and celosia enthusiast Ralph Cramer during a trip to Brasil.

Thanks Ralph for an amazing exclamation point in our late season arrangements and bouquets! Come see these beautiful wild meadow flowers at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market this weekend.

See you there!

Zinnias, Sedum, Celosia, Tuberose

The late summer has a few of its own seasonal specialties coming into bloom.

  • Sedum is a soft green that brings out the highlights in any color scheme.
  • Tuberose is coming into its own now and should be available for the rest of the summer.
  • Celosia is king of the late summer annuals. We have a great variety of celosias this season with a mix of brightly colored cockscombs and many different shapes and colors of feathery plume celosias.
  • Sunflowers and zinnias keep blooming all summer long, too. Right up until the first frost.

We'll be back at the market this Saturday with fresh cut flowers from our Kentucky flower farm.

See you there!

Sunflowers, Cockscomb, Plume Celosia, Zinnias, Ageratum, Mountain Mint

We're very sorry to have to tell you that we won't be at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market this Saturday. Due to a large special order for this week combined with poor production from weather trouble earlier this summer, we are completely sold out and have no flowers to bring to market this week.

Our mixed bouquets are always available at any of the Paul's Fruit Market locations in Louisville when you can't get them at the market.

See you next week,
Kellie and Tim
