Allium

These bulbs create a super unique flower - I can’t wait to show you this spring. These little guys were only planted as a last minute decision, and I don’t have very many of them, but they are looking great already. 1.4.2021 Look at how big they are getting!

Irises

Irises - at least the ones we have are EXTREMELY HARDY! These were planted in a front flowerbed, but had expanded over the years into the shade - so they were not blooming. I decided one day to move a few of them, and I hope it proves to be one of the best decisions of this fall. 11.21.2020 These tubers were layered under the irises when I really got into the middle of the pile. I am excited to see what they grow into.   11.21.2020 This is a picture of the irises directly after I moved them and planted them in their new location. All I did was dig them up, bring them over, mix a little bone...

Tulips

Tulips are always a favorite! It was our goal to find the most unique and loved varieties known to man. We are excited to see how they flourish this season. 11.10.2020 The photo above was taken quickly while we were trying to get all 3000 bulbs in the ground before the sun went down. When planting tulips for cut flowers, place them close together - like eggs in a carton. Here we are, trying out this method for the first time.  11.19.2020 Putting a few more tulips in the ground. ;) 1.8.2021 While scratching the surface, I found this little guy peaking through! I believe this is the first tulip sprout of the season (screaming with excitement) 😍

Anemones

Anemones are beautiful flowers, though their name makes many think of Finding Nemo. These beauties are cold hardy, but much like ranunculus, do not tolerate extremely cold temperatures. For that reason, we have them under low tunnels and put frost cloths on whenever the forecast gets into the low twenties. They have been slow to come up this year, but we are looking forward to seeing them once they are in full bloom.  10.31.2020 Above was us working the ground. Mixing in manure compost before putting the babies in the ground.    11.15.2020 This picture shows a baby anemone just popping up above soil level.    1.4.2021 The two pictures above show where the anemones are at currently. Some of them...
