​ 2018 Spring Ephemerals Bouquet Share: 4 weeks​

79.00

At the end of the long winter, we are all desperate for scent and color. By March, I am antsy to see the fields filled with flowers..and depending on the kindness of Mother Nature, we may or may not see blooms as early as April in the field. This year we have planted over 10,000 spring bulbs to be tucked into our bouquets and sold to florists and designers next spring. 

To share the bounty with our loyal followers, we are again offering a limited 4 week spring bouquet share, where you will receive a ~18 stem bouquet each week of our first 2018 field grown flowers.

Filled with large, french tulips or whimsical fluted petal parrot tulips, and frilled, rare, double scented daffodils, these are our first flowers on the farm. We pair them with freshly cut early blooming shrubs and tree foliage. This share was hugely popular last year and it is expected to sell out in 2018.

When does it start? When the flowers are ready to bloom. That's right, we'll surprise you! As soon as we start to see the buds breaking ground we can gauge time to bloom; and we will email you about 2 weeks ahead of time with the start date. We can roughly estimate an April start as similar to 2017.

Limited Availability: We have planted a finite number of bulbs into the field for spring. We've set the share inventory based on this, so once they are sold out, THAT'S IT!

Pickup Options: We've got 4 local options for pickup for this short spring fling. Flickerwood in downtown Oxford; and new for 2018 spring share; WorKS in Kennett Square; Eastcoat Lane in Devon; and Arden and James in the Chadds Ford Barn Shops. We are estimating Thursday (OX, Devon) & Friday (CF, KSQ) pickups anytime from around noon-closing same as 2017; but will confirm along with the 'start date' in very early spring! 

Our Promise: As always, our bouquets will be filled with unusual colors and varieties and responsibly grown without chemicals. They are handmade by Mara, so no two are the exact same, and freshly picked from what is blooming in our fields, bursting with color, wrapped with rubberbands, and ready to be dropped into the vase or container of your choice once back at home.

Your Promise: Pickup your flowers on your designated day/time (or send a friend if you can't make it!); and treat them well. Our flowers are not chemically treated including no vase life extenders. For the longest vase life: Keep them out of direct sun. Fresh cut them before putting them into fresh clean water, change the water regularly to keep bacteria from clogging the stems. 

Show your love with flowers freshly picked from the field. Shares make a great holiday gift for loved ones OR if you are a small business, have fresh flowers in your lobby or on your reception desk! 

After purchase, you will receive an auto order confirmation from our site; and then a follow up email in March with additional details. Due to the perishable nature of blooms, we are unable to accommodate special requests including changes to the pickup spots. 

As always thank you so much for your local love and support of our small family farm! Without you, we would not be able to grow the special things we do and we are thankful!
