PSA: these are NOT wildflowers!

I think it is important to clarify that the flowers that are grown by me and other flower farmers are NOT wild. They are a crop. Like all other crops, cut flowers take a lot of work to grow. Us flower farmers raise these plants from seed, making sure each plant gets all it needs to be as prolific, productive and healthy as possible in order to deliver beautiful, quality blooms for floral customers spanning from professional florists, couples getting married, and retail customers alike.

We test and amend our soil so that it is heathy and hospitable, we support our flowers so they don’t flop in the rain or wind and get all twisty and crooked, we are out in the field at 9pm spraying fertilizer, scouting for bugs. We spend 90 degree days harvesting at just the right stage.

I know, that most of the time, when folks refer to flowers as “wildflowers” they actually are describing a design style. Meaning, they don’t want roundy moundy arrangements, they want something more organic- maybe “wild” in style.

It makes sense that locally grown flowers are confused with true wildflowers (flowers that just grow by themselves in the actual wild- not on a farm or in a garden) This is because, locally grown flowers are SEASONAL. Most US flower farmers do grow flowers that mirror what grows wildly. Because that is what grows well in the area and at that particular time of year.

The problem I have with people using the term “wildflowers” when referring to cultivated local flowers, is that it makes invisible all the work put into growing them. It DEVALUES them. People assume they should be cheaper. It constantly puts flower growers in the position of defending their prices- especially when prices are already being compared to the grocery store prices. It takes a lot of work, time and experience to make flowers look this “wild” 💁

I suggest the term “seasonal” instead. Or perhaps “fieldy.”

Would love your thoughts on this. Have you ever made this mistake? Is this helpful? Lets have a discourse!

Just bit the bullet and registered for the Sustainable Flowers Project 2022!

Last September I ventured out to Alberta, Canada to learn from @prairiegirlflowers , @tjmcgrathdesign , @tobeynelsonevents , Syma Habib, and Carolynne Crawley of Msitnokmaq

Talking shop with other flower people who are genuinely working to make meaningful change in this industry was invigorating, inspiring, healing and FUN!

This year it will be held in NJ, and I simply couldn’t pass up a visit to my home state for another couple days of enriching education. Straight up self care ya’ll.

Can’t wait to learn from another inspiring group of instructors including @tincanstudios , @shaneconnelly , and @ambertamm_ and to spend time at @jardin_de_buis

If you’re a flower person, and care about making the industry more sustainable ( you should…) and are able to invest, I highly recommend!

“WE’RE HERE, WE’RE QUEER. DON’T F**K WITH US, WE’RE FABULOUS”

I took last weekend off the farm to celebrate pride in DC.

Pride still feels a little lonely for me. I spent a lot of years feeling confused and stuck in between before it dawned on me that I’m queer. Pride is so much about celebrating queer magic and joy with your “family” - for a lot of queer folks that is not the family they were born into. Since coming out as gender queer, and adopting THEY/ THEM pronouns (please and thank you) I am still searching and working on building my queer fam in Loudoun County, VA. I’ve certainly found some amazing queer friends and allies and it’s finally starting to come together- but it’s a loooong work in progress!

PSA about pronouns! Trans folks know it’s hard for you. Before you complain about how hard it is- take a minute and think about what it was like for them to make the switch (all the courage) , and then think about how bad it might feel after doing all that work, to be ignored, or denied the dignity of being gendered properly. If they can do the work, you can do the work. WORK ON IT.

I am resolving to be a better advocate of my gender identity at this moment. If/ when I correct you- I’m not angry- yet. I just need you to be conscious of it. You can be sure that I am. I clock it every time you call me she- and every time you call me they, I feel happy inside. Thank you in advance!

SO! Shout out to all the LoCo queers out there! Let’s get together yayaya!

And as ever, deepest gratitude to all the trans folks of color who kicked it off decades ago!

Weekend plans?!

Come to @themercva this Saturday evening and build your own bouquet at Flower Power Happy Hour! Hopefully the first of many this season!

Visit the Hamilton Mercantile from 5-7. They will have the coffee bar open late, and will be offering tastes if their natural wines in stock! It’s sure to be a PARTYYY!

No better way to herald the changing of the seasons, and celebrate the summer solstice! BYOV (bring your own vessel) if you’d like to design in a vase!

I’ll be around to help with design/ bouq building tips!

See you there!!!

Ever wonder what that flower is on @themercva logo?! It ain’t just a generic orange daisy, folks- IT’S CALENDULA! This is a magical, wonderful, healing herb, @themercva owner Meredith’s favorite!

You can pick up a bunch of these medicinal beauties for your vase ( thats how we at Far Bungalow use it) or heck throw it in the tub for a soothing bath!
Or ask your favorite Merc employee for other ideas and Calendula based products!

Spring vibes on a “day off”.

Fyi, these #ranunculus were harvested nearly two weeks ago, and are continuing to live their best life.

If you wonder why these flowers are on the costly side. It’s because they are of great value. Long lasting, luscious, soft, elegant, sexy.

Scroll to see harvest stage. They may look unassuming when #fresh but they age like a #finewine

Expect to pay 3.00, a stem for this brilliant crop. #becauseyourworthit
