Flower Journey 2020 RSS



Peonies

You've come to the right place to follow a trail and error journey.  The very first flower I wanted to grow as a cut flower was a peony. I had dreams of a Texas Tulip sized operation where people could come cut peonies straight from the field. I LOVE them! In fact, my family and I tried planting a few in the spring of 2020 with no luck. After studying these plants and their growing habits, I know where we might have gone wrong. They enjoy the cold weather, and though various species can grow in zones 3-8, it is not always easy in the warmer climates (we are in zone 7). This is evident by the fact that there are...

Heirloom Narcissus

Daffodils might be the best investment that we make this year. They are prolific bloomers and are sure to come back annually. We currently have two rows that are about 30 feet full of bulbs.  11.23.2020 Here is a row of daffodils the day that they were put into the ground. I’m excited to see these guys start to come up in the spring.  1.8.2021 I scratched the surface today to encourage the sprouts to break through the soil when it is time for them to come up.  1.15.2021 The snow that covered the ground 5 days ago has mostly melted, uncovering these beauties! First Daffodil sprouts of the season!  3.5.2021 FIRST FLOWER STEMS!!! They came the day after my...

Muscari

Now these little flowers might have such short stems that we are unable to use them, but we are going to try our best because it is very hard to find BLUE flowers. So, these are the first flowers that are truly blue in our garden. We will see what they decide to do.  1.4.2021 Beginning to make an appearance here! 2.2.2021 First little bloom 💕

Hyacinth

These little bulbs make the most beautifully scented flowers. We are growing them in all sorts of colors, and can not wait to see how they continue to progress this winter. We have them under the low tunnels, but I really think they could bare the cold outside as well. 1.4.21 Almost all of these little things look exactly like this right now. It won’t be long until they are a few inches tall. 1.17.2021 Look at how these little guys open up here 😍

Larkspur

These cute little guys were the first seeds that I put into the ground, and they seem to be the last that are coming up. They enjoy the cold so much that they don’t require frost cloths or low tunnels. I am excited to see how they grow in the coming weeks. They are going to be beautiful flowers one day.   1.4.21 Coming up from the ground.  1.15.2021 Tonight I found more of these cute sprouts coming up and covered in frost, though green as ever.  :)
