Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find your cut flowers?
The easiest way to find our flowers is right here on our website. We'll update our Shop page frequently throughout the season. You can preorder your blooms and pick them up in South Weymouth or have them delivered (for free to South Weymouth and for a fee to surrounding towns).
Beginning in July, you'll also find us at the Weymouth Farmer's Market! We'll be there July 24th, August 7th, August 21st, September 18th, and October 2nd. Stop by and say hello!
We’re experimenting with a self-service cart on Union Street, but warm weather and cut flowers don’t mix. Stay tuned for more on that.
What do you grow?
In our first year, we've decided to grow all kinds of flowers to see what works, where we have gaps in the growing season, and what our customers are interested in buying.
So far, we've planted or sown tulips, anemones, ranunculus, Iceland poppies, sweet peas, snapdragons, dianthus, yarrow, cress, scabiosa, cerinthe, gomphrena, cosmos, zinnias, sunflowers, celosia, and dahlias. We planted a handful of peonies too, but we won't have a significant harvest from those for a few years. Lastly, we have lilac bushes and spirea on our property that we use for greenery.
We field grow all of our crops, meaning that we don't have a big hoop house to extend our season or protect our flowers from frost, hail, and pelting rain. So our operation is truly seasonal and weather dependent. For now, we grow flowers when Mother Nature intended them to bloom. You won't see our tulips in July just yet.
Do you spray your flowers?
We do our best to work with nature. We plant flowers specifically to attract beneficial insects, hand pull weeds, and employ low till methods. Our growing space is our yard, where our kiddo and dog play. You can rest assured that we wouldn't put anything on those flowers that we deemed unsafe for them or for you. Fish emulsion? Organic fertilizer? Bonemeal? Yes. Hazardous stuff? No. That said, many flowers are toxic when ingested. So please don't chew them!
How are your flowers different from the ones I see at the grocery store?
While grocery store flowers have come a long way, they're still no match for locally grown flowers. Before flowers arrive at the floral department, they travel enormous distances (sometimes 4,000 miles!) in refrigerated vehicles. Think of all those planes, trains, and automobiles moving your flowers for weeks before they even get to your table.
To endure these arduous journeys, grocery store blooms are often bred and treated for transit. What does that mean? It means soulless, odorless, chemically laden blooms that may never open.
Many of the species and varieties that flower farmers grow don't travel well. They are unique jewels that you'll find yourself staring at day after day.
Where did you learn about flowers?
Roxy grew up helping out around her father's flower shop in Miami. There, she learned flower conditioning and storage, bouquet making, flower arranging, and packaging. More recently, she invested in floral design training.
Brian's background is in turf grass management. He's deeply familiar with growing and propagating plants.
Do you do events?
Yes! We'd love to help you celebrate your special days with flowers. If you think you'd like to work with us, fill out the Event Inquiry form on our Contact page. If we're available on your event date, we'll send over a questionnaire before scheduling a call.
Where is your delivery area?
We offer porch delivery in Weymouth, Braintree, Abington, Rockland, Quicy, Norwell, Hanover, Holbrook, Pembroke, Hingham, Cohasset, Duxbury, Marshfield, Kingston, or Scituate. With porch delivery, we'll do our best to find a shady spot out of the elements if the recipient isn't home.
If you select porch delivery and the delivery address is outside our delivery area, your order will be canceled. For wreath purchases, we are able to ship within the contiguous U.S. For more information, see our Etsy shop.
