It is the simple pleasures in life that put a smile on our face and on the face of others. Is there a better example of such a pleasantry than an exquisite bouquet of freshly cut flowers to brighten a room and our spirits? And when we consider the flowers are locally grown, fresh harvested within 24 hours using eco-friendly farming methods, our smile can grow even bigger.
Expect the Extraordinary! Our beautiful bouquets are lush, fragrant and unique. Along with dahlias, lilacs, and specialty tulips, we grow nostalgic old-fashioned varieties such as night scented stocks, specialty nicotiana, giant zinnia, lisianthus, Italian ranunculi, and more!
Bouquets and arrangements will vary to reflect the beauty and uniqueness of each season, with six options for you to select from, or you can purchase a full season of flowers!
Each week, your subscription will come arranged in your choice of arrangement:
gorgeous hand tied bouquet, or an eco-friendly sweet posy jar.
Our subscriptions run from April through October. Pick up will be available in Sechelt, Gibsons and Pender Harbour on the Sunshine Coast, B.C. with dates and locations to be confirmed Spring 2020.
At times the fields are bursting with blooms including specialty tulips, dahlia’s, sunflowers, and zinnia’s. When this occurs seasonally we will post varieties and availability to our newsletter. Please be sure to subscribe for updates here. Add-ons of single variety flower bunches can be purchased each week when there is an abundance!
Buckets of blooms are available to purchase all season. Please contact us using our online form to let us know which blooms you are interested in, as well as the date of your event.
Each bucket contains 50-85 stems and sells for $65-$100 depending on the varieties. It’s a wonderfully simple way to decorate your home with enough blooms for every room!

A few additional things we want you to know:
At the farm we are super excited to start harvesting the fields for the 2020 Season of blooms! The early season subscriptions are due to begin on the approximate spring dates…. but Mother Nature is in charge! These dates are an estimation of what the weather will do based on our previous experience. We will watch carefully and send you updates by email about a week before the subscription starts.
Your flower bouquet will be a lush assortment of the freshest seasonal blooms in the fields. We are not able to accommodate specific flower requests but assure you that each and every week you will receive a gorgeous arrangement with a variety of textures and color themes!
Extra flowers may be purchased in straight bunches as an add-on when there is a seasonal abundance in the fields. information here.
For special occasions we offer lovely gift cards. We are happy to provide you with an additional extra bouquet for a special events. All you need to do is give us your request with 2 days advance notice by email to email@example.com , and we will include your extra bouquet’s in your weekly pickup!
FLOWER CARE TIPS:
We endeavor to get your flower bouquet to you as fresh as possible! You can reasonably expect your blooms to last about a week. Of course it depends on the variety of flowers and the aftercare that they get. We have included some handy tips for greater success.
Please note that dinner plate dahlia’s may only last 4-6 days while zinnia’s may stay perky for 10 days. Astonishingly the amazing Tulip will keep on growing up to an inch or two in the vase!
When picking your flowers you will want to keep them cool and hydrated for transport. You may want to bring along a container (bucket) of water if you are planning a longer trip. Keeping your cut flowers in a cool place and out of the sun will greatly increase their longevity.
Once your flowers are home we recommend that you trim the stem ends with sharp scissors and place in a clean vase that is filled with cool tap water. Add flower food if you have it and mix well.
Place your bouquet in a cool room out of direct sunlight and be sure to check the water level often. Fresh cut blooms can initially drink a lot of water and you will not want your vase to run out!
You will have greater success if you change the water every 2-3 days, and be sure to trim off spent blossoms so you may continue to enjoy your bouquet!
You can make your own flower food by adding about 1 teaspoon of sugar, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and a 1 teaspoon of bleach to your vase before adding about a quart of warm tap water. It is worth noting that there are a few flowers that actually do NOT like flower food in the vase. Some of these are: zinnias, sunflowers and gladiola's.
one last thing to note….
If you are going to be away, please have a friend, colleague or family member pick up your flower share. Any bouquets that are not picked up during the designated time frame will be donated to the food bank
