This year, we’ll be growing a wide variety of annual flowers. Cut flowers are available in bouquets at our farm stand in Wilbraham from late June until the first hard frost (usually some time in October). Cut flowers will keep best if you give them fresh water daily.
Our flower selection will be a mix of old favorites and less common varieties, including ageratum, baby’s breath, bachelor’s buttons, celosia, Chinese forget-me-not, drumstick flower, echinacea, gomphrena, rudbeckia, snapdragons, statice, strawflowers, sunflowers, tithonia, and zinnias. Growing flowers in addition to vegetables increases the biodiversity on our farm–good for our bees, good for wildlife, good for you!
