Petals on the Porch
Little pre-season bunches of spring cheer! Our harvest shed (and future wee little farm stand/shop is still under construction, so inspired by the many inspiring farmer/florists in the States we're starting the season with our Petals on the Porch offerings (I'm pretty stoked the new farm house has the most amazing porch/verandah of my dreams!)
Currently in season:
Ranunculus – with all their layers of glorious petals and outstanding vase-life they are the queens of spring - they're a tad limited at the moment as they get their flowering grove on in the coming weeks, but first off the mark we have the lovely Italian Bianco Sfumato (shades of pinks & creams) and the Striato's (picotee whites & golden yellows) with their captivating deep edges!
Anemones – a little unsuspecting in bud, but just wait and watch them unfurl and open for you at home – they especially come to life on sunny days, opening and closing during the day/night before they're fully open, I'm particularly excited about the lovely colours we have available this season, they're even better than last season!
Tulips - the original queen of spring (before the ranuncs tried to steal their thunder), I attempted to reign back on my quantities & varieties this year, but I just couldn't part with any so, I tried, I failed, and it's beautiful!
Seasonal Bouquet – a beautifully curated mix of the best Ranunculus, Anemones and other seasonal flowers & foliages.
Flowers of the day bunches available for pick-up only (276 Tikorangi Road East, Tikorangi, from 11.00am–5.30pm Monday–Friday, pre-orders essential).
Exact bunches/colour will vary daily - do check out our Instagram & Facebook stories to see what's available on the day, we can also make them to order if we haven't posted anything that day.
How to find our farm - we really need signs made up as our driveway is very drive past-able. But if you're coming from New Plymouth ways we're the first driveway on the right after the little faded 'Nursery Next' sign, blue letterbox. At the moment we have our flowers up on the house porch so drive up past the sheds, around the corner and on towards the house. Please note at this stage we are only offering flowers on a pre-order only basis, so please do pop an order through before turning up, and we'll have them ready & waiting for you.
