The Light of Spring
Growing flowers for a living has its challenges, especially in the middle of a cold, wet Humboldt County winter. However, it appears spring is finally here, and I am grateful.
The return of spring is like the light coming up after the darkness. The scent in the air, the warm sun drying the rows between the hoop houses and feeling a fresh breeze off the Pacific makes me feel blessed to work as a flower farmer.
The cycles of nature remind me of a quote from one of my favorite authors, Viktor Frankl, "What is to give light must endure burning."
We have endured the winter, lets enjoy the light of spring. - Lane
BLOOMS THAT SELL
Spring Specialty Tulips
Our fancy tulip harvest is still growing! We are harvesting new, rare and unique varieties daily. Crazy textures and crazy colors are the theme
here on the farm. Talk to your sales rep to see what we are picking today..and if you have one minute and six seconds, treat yourself to our ZANY Tulip Mania Video!
Timing is Everything: Mother's Day Lilies
Our growers have been timing our lily plantings to come in perfectly for the big day, and we are running right on schedule for Mother's Day 2018. Fragrant Oriental lilies are bursting
from the greenhouses with the whites, dark pinks and light pinks that capture the essence of the day.
America is in Season
July is the perfect month to promote and support American Grown Flowers.
In 2016 Congress declared July "American Grown Flowers Month." We need your help to drive awareness and celebrate the history and legacy of our American flower-farming families.
July is when "America is in Season."
To learn how you can participate in American Grown Flower Month click HERE.
It is still early, but Lisianthus season has started. We will see a spike in availability in June, so get your orders on the books now.
Check out our video of Lane explaining the biologic controls we use to ensure a successful harvest.
We are thrilled to announce Sun Valley is bringing back our white freesia!
We aren't harvesting just yet, but will be soon. White has always been the most popular color. So, due to popular demand, we brought back a white only program in Arcata. YAY!
Can you see the brides circling?
