Shortly after high school graduation, I attended college at UMD, but seemed to never stray away from floral design all together. Even after graduating from University of Maryland I always had my mom’s shop, Stephanie’s Secret Garden Flower Shop first on my mind for career options. About a year or two after I moved from a part-time to a full-time Florist, I began to feel as though something was missing......
Creating numerous boutiques and corsages/boutonnieres for various weddings, proms, and homecomings became rather like second nature to me.... ridding me of that new and exciting passion I felt in the very beginning of my floral career.
So, with flowers still in mind, I decided to broaden my horizon and actually grow and farm the flowers we were using.
I began to research all there was to know about growing and harvesting flowers, from seed starting under CFL lights to soil composition and how to create your very own organic compost. It was not until a month or two after, that I began ordering seeds online and creating a very in-depth schedule of seedling grow dates, spacing requirements and anything else needed for growing healthy and beautiful flowers.
The couple of months approaching my first growing season in April was spent more in the greenhouse than anywhere else. Flower farming became my main priority, requiring my full attention day and night.
