2018 Flower Subscription - BUCKET
The Urban Farmchick's flower subscription provides flower lovers with the opportunity to receive premium, sustainable locally grown flowers, fresh from our flowers field and gardens right here in Thunder Bay throughout the summer and early autumn season with a variety of flowers and foliage rarely seen in store bouquets.
Purchasing our freshly harvested flower subscription not only offers a stunning alternative to imported store bouquets but supports our local urban flower farm.
Purchasing a flower subscription for yourself or the flower lover you care so much about is unique and available in either bouquet or bucket subscriptions. Follow the care instructions attached and enjoy the beauty of locally grown all week long.
This listing is for a BUCKET Subscription:
The BUCKET subscription is perfect for the flower addict who loves to create their own arrangements. With this subscription, you will receive a weekly bucket loaded with a wide variety of seasonal flowers and foliage fresh from the flower farm, ready for your creative flowering touch. A lovely gift for you or the perfect way to share your flower arranging style with others for gifting (if you can part with the lovely blooms). Follow the care instructions attached and enjoy the beauty of locally grown all week long.
Due to mother nature's unpredictable ways these days, it's hard to know exactly when our flowers will be ready for harvesting but based on past growing seasons, subscriptions run for 4 weeks and for the 2018 season you will have two options:
EARLY SUMMER or LATE SUMMER:
EARLY summer will generally run from late June through July and may include tulips, peonies and delphiniums. Definitely a premium flower season.
LATE summer will generally run from July through August with a wonderful and varied selection of beautiful annual flowers, grasses and other unique foliage.
IN ADDITION TO EARLY/LATE Subscription choices, this year you can choose a weekly pickup or an every other week pickup. Last year's some CSA subscribers found the bouquets were so large and long lasting that one every other week would have been perfect. Let me know your choice in the comments when placing your order.
Both options are subject to weather and thus growing conditions and may run slightly earlier or later. In any event, your subscription will run for 4 (or over 8 weeks for those choosing the every other week option) weeks once it begins.
The attached photos are of flowers from a previous season. While your bucket may not contain the exact same flowers, you will receive flowers and unique foliage and grasses which are fresh, of an oh so pretty variety based on what's in bloom or ready for harvest at the appropriate time.
