GET READY FOR MOTHER'S DAY!
*This offer will close officially on April 1st for final seed germination.
Enjoy our curated, specialty selection of seven types of fresh-cut flowers, a total of 28 plants. These hardy specimens are grown seasonally and sustainably on our farm. The flowers are so unique, we have to purchase seed online to germinate for ourselves to grow. Most are not found locally to buy.
From wind, to sleet, to monsoon rains, to drought, these special flowers continue to brave the unpredictable outdoor elements while churning out multiple, beautiful blooms. They ask for little to no maintenance and love full sun.
These varieties grow the most perfect, long stems for cutting and arranging. They are what we call, "cut and come again" varieties. When the first strong bloom appears at the top, we simply cut it out deep into the plant to enjoy branching stems from the side. Don't worry, we'll provide instructions on this method!
We often find that balance in a Barnswallow Bouquet exists in five various floral elements. From hero flowers to filler. Many farmer florists use this knowledge in balance for seasonal seed selection. In particular, our seed selection choices are purely based on what we can use overall in a balanced bouquet design while considering seasonal growing conditions in Iowa.
This share is a one-time, pick up of 7 fresh-cut flower varieties to fill your very own cutting garden. Each seedling type will come in 4-pack cells. You will receive 4 seedlings of each variety, a total of 28 plants!
All plants are germinated and grown by Barnswallow, utilizing our sustainable greenhouse that is temp controlled and built by local Iowan contractors with local Iowa products and recyclable materials. The seedlings will be hardened off and ready to plant upon pick up. The exact mix of flower varieties may be slightly adjusted after germination. We reserve the right to substitute based on the success of that seed germination.
The following are flower varieties in this share...
Giant Specialty Marigold (Orange)
Straw Flower (Various Colors)
- Celosia (Colorful Plum-Filled Stems)
Seedlings will ONLY be available for pick up at the farm in early May when the spring weather becomes stable enough for planting. You will receive an email with the pick up details in late April. Pick up will take place at Barnwallow Farm: 2560 Highway 23, Oskaloosa, Iowa 52577.
No refunds are available once your order is placed. Once we receive your order, we purchase seed and start the germination process. Due to seed expense, labor and utility costs, we cannot offer any refunds if you are unable to pick up your CSA share for any reason. However, you may gift to family or friends!
