NOW AVAILABLE – WHITE SQUILL
The Drimia maritima, commonly known as the White Squill, is a native of Africa. This exhibition piece has drama, and does well in high visibility locations, and is a perfect solution for non-irrigated properties. It is primarily grown for cut flower production. The plant produces 12-18″ long leaves of glaucus blue-green strap-shaped leaves and a tall, narrow raceme of flowers
SUSTAINABLY GROWN TULIP VARIETIES AVAILABLE
Many small flower growers are taking a cue from organic food farmers, who have successfully harnessed the farm-to-table trend. More of us now know where our beef comes from and how our tomatoes are grown, but it rarely occurs to us to ask the same questions about the flowers on our tables. These bulbs have MPS Certification, ensuring they have been sustainably grown.
SPRING 2018 TULIP & DAFFODIL TRIALS
I’ve been planting tulips and daffodil bulbs in my Marin County trial garden every December for almost twelve years. The plants come into flower in the months of February through April, a time when temperatures have the potential to climb into the 70s and low 80s; but these are also Northern California’s rainy months, and at times, like the past week, means we also experience occasional hail and gale force winds.
