WC Blooms’ 2024 Flowers: Sharing Locally Grown Flowers & Resources

Sally Azzato has been growing specialty cut flowers in her home gardens for years, getting so much joy from hearing how much her flowers reminded customers of wonderful memories from their past. Customers will pick up a bouquet at her roadside stand to make their homes feel more peaceful and put together. They may gift flowers to a friend who is ill, or going through a rough time, reminding Sally of the healing power of flowers. She is touched that her efforts in growing them can be a part of those journeys. For her customers who don't live close enough to pick up a bouquet, she has developed various resources to teach them how to grow and harvest from a small cutting garden, with creative ways to use the blooms once cut.

Sally has an ebook download available on ShopThePAWilds.com called “The Giving Garden: How to Create a Cut Flower Garden in a Small Space” which includes 6 of her favorite flowers to cut and display in a vase. You'll learn what varieties to look for, how to plant and harvest each one, as well as substitutions that you may prefer! You don't need to start seeds indoors, you don't need a greenhouse- you'll just need a 15 square foot area, or several containers to get started after your danger of frost has passed. This guide provides everything you'll need, including a sample layout plan and printable sheets you can take straight to your planting site. It will set you up for success so that you can experience the joy and connection to nature that beautiful flowers can bring.
