Cool Season Annual Flower Collection
Spring flowers are our absolute favorite on the farm and we are happy to share this new collection with home gardeners. Garden centers don't usually offer these varieties in favor of more durable plants that bloom all summer long. But we think the ephemeral nature of spring flowers is what makes them so special.
Some of the varieties in this collection will bloom as early as May and continue through June and July. Some, like snapdragons and rudbeckia, will even offer you a repeat bloom in the fall. And some, like foxglove and calendula, will readily self-sow in your garden for next year.
This collection comes with (20) 3" annual plants in individual paper-pulp pots in trays (2 trays of 10 plants each). The plants are hardened off and ready to go in the ground.
This collection may include:
*these varieties are suitable for cutting
Actual variety mix in collections may vary depending on greenhouse performance and availability. We will do our best to provide a diverse mix for each collection.
This collection will be available for pickup as early as mid-April. These are cold-hardy and cold-loving plants that are best planted 1-2 weeks before our last frost date.
You will receive an email with pickup details in April once we see how the spring weather unfolds. Pickup options include at our farm at 2150 Warren Road in Ann Arbor 48105 on Saturdays and Sundays, or at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market in Kerrytown on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
All plant collections will come with an email plant packet detailing the names of each variety, recommended spacing, siting and care.
