Welcome Flower Friends
I created this blog to take you along with me As I navigate through flower farming and hopefully be able to provide some helpful insights on what worked for me and what didn’t. I strive to be consistent on here to provide my highs and my lows to give an accurate representation on what it takes to be a flower farmer. As I learn and grown through trial and error I plan to share with you helpful tips and tricks so hopefully you don’t have to make as many mistakes as I did!!
