FLOWERS ARE OUR GREATEST SILENT FRIENDS
WE ARE A BIT BEHIND THIS SEASON WITH THE ZINNIAS DUE TO HEAVY RAIN IN MAY! EMAIL LORETTA TO SEE WHATS AVAILABLE - WE HAVE OTHER BLOOMS TO FILL THE DIY BUCKETS :) THANK YOU!!!
July – Mid October
BUCKETS OF ZINNIAS- 70-80 stems for $75.00.
Do you need a splash of color for your party or wedding? Our buckets of zinnias are guaranteed to bring a smile to you and your guests for any occasion! Over the past few years of growing our most requested DIY flower has been Zinnias. And why not? They are fun, bright and cheery, and well they just make you happy! Varieties that we grow are: Benary's Giant, State Fair, Cactus and the coveted Queen Lime & Queen Lime Red series. If your occasion calls for antique & soft colors to set a calming mood or if you live loud and prefer bright, hot colors we are sure we have the right shade for you!
We do not use any chemical pesticides on our flowers.
Design and consulting are not included in this DIY option.
Plan on picking up your flowers at our farm ( Poverty Branch Road, Barnardsville) on Thursday or Friday mornings between 8:00-12:00.
The Zinnias usually start blooming the first of July, but we may have blooms in mid-June. Our hope and plan is to keep blooms until frost - which is so unpredictable here in the mountains. If you need them earlier in June or later in October just call or email and we will let you know how the growing season is going.
We do not offer You-Pick.
Please keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram to see when we will be offering Farm Tour days in 2018!
Just a few tips on caring for your Zinnias:
*Please keep in mind how you will transport your flowers. The buckets will have a few inches of water in them, so there might be a few spills in your vehicle. The back seat of a car will work and vans & SUV's give you plenty of room! Please don't put them in the trunk of your car or the back of an uncovered truck bed.
*Plan on picking up your flowers the day before your event (Thursday or Friday morning between 8:00 am and 12:00 noon) Keep the flowers in water, in a cool air conditioned room, out of direct sunlight. Flowers will last 4-7 days depending the variety. Delivery available on orders of $200 or more, $25-50 depending on your site (Asheville and surrounding areas).
*A 2 week notice is greatly appreciated. We only sell a certain number of buckets per week during our growing season, so please call or email as soon as possible to reserve your date. I understand life is crazy and last minute decisions need to be made, we will try our best to accommodate your flower needs within our ability!
*One Bucket will fill about 5-7 Mason Jars.
*I encourage you to make your flower arrangements the day before your event. It takes a lot more time than you think to make them.
*Pick up is at our farm, Poverty Branch Road, Barnardsville NC 28709.
*Email or call to place your order , the sooner you place your order the better to guarantee your colors.
*You can purchase your bucket(s) on the "SHOP" page. But I encourage you to email first to check the availability. We also accept PayPal and Local Checks ($35 return fee).
