HOW TO GROW BASIL FOR FLORAL DESIGN

Basil is one of the summer workhorses in our operation. No other foliage we’ve tried has been so easy, so spectacular and so versatile.

How to Grow Bachelor Buttons (Centaurea cyanus)

The first flower that I ever grew from seed were bachelor buttons.

It was the first spring at the house I was renting, and had received permission to start a small garden there. I had done some research as far as easy seeds to start, and had purchased a packet of bachelor buttons.

    KNOW YOUR (FARMER'S) MARKET

    Back when we were starting our flower farming venture, we decided that we would do a farmers market. Steven and I loved farmers markets, especially the ones in Omaha and Kansas City. What’s not to love? Fresh produce, fresh flowers, delicious baked goods and jams and honey and hand knit dog sweaters and rustic yard art and really everything you could ever want.

    ALWAYS HAVE A BACKUP PLAN

    One of the flowers that we were going to grow for the wedding were Icelandic poppies in shades of white, peach and pink. Poppies were going to be our trademark flower, since it was rare that we would ever be able to buy them in otherwise. Their delicate, papery petals would be adorning every centerpiece and table and bouquet.
