As the summer shines on, I hope you are enjoying the warm weather and reconnecting with nature. We’ve been busy in the garden, planting different varieties of flowers and herbs and transforming our Lakewood backyard into a colorful habitat for pollinators. Our little plot of land is now overflowing with fresh, sweet-scented flowers. Now we want to share our harvest with you!
At our first-ever event, we’ll be at ThreeFoldGifts’ pop-up shop in Lakewood on Saturday from 10AM-6PM, selling flowers and custom bouquets. Please stop by and say hello if you are in the neighborhood.
We’ll harvest our flowers on Friday night, bringing you the freshest selection of locally grown flowers and herbs to choose from at our Saturday event. You can pick up a pre-made bouquet or you can choose from our fresh flower selection and we’ll make a bouquet on-the-spot for you.
Vibrant blooms will include pink and purple Zinnias, orange Daylilies, white Queen Anne’s Lace, pink and yellow Cosmos, pink and white Yarrow and a variety of wildflowers including Larkspur, Allysum, Bachelor’s Buttons, Black-Eyed-Susan and more.
Did you know that 80% of fresh flowers in the US are imported? At Wildflower Lab, we’d like to change that, and give our community the option of buying locally grown fresh flowers.
We interplant fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers for a more bountiful harvest and use organic techniques reminiscent of the first cultivated plots for the best outcomes. We're planting native wildflowers and perennials that attract and protect beneficial wildlife and pollinators, and we’d love to talk to you about transforming your backyard into an edible garden.
At Wildflower Lab it all begins with the soil. We believe in using organic, regenerative practices. We don't use any chemicals, just healthy heaps of compost. We're proud advocates of the slow flower movement and try to incorporate native plants into our farm program whenever we can.
To extend the life of cut flower bouquets, we recommend adding a dash of organic, raw cane sugar to the vase when your flowers reach their destination.
This is a blog about turning lawns into edible gardens, providing a habitat for pollinators and living a more sustainable life. We hope to inspire others to plant a garden to save the world.
