Several years ago we decided to pursue a new adventure, and expanded our garden. We developed a little flower farm, which we called Celtic Roots Farm.
The Celtic Roots reference includes our own Celtic roots, both Scottish and Irish, as well as the roots of all the plants, growing in the soil that we are nurturing year after year, with our farming practices.
We have met some wonderful community members along the way, sharing the joy and beauty of the flowers.
There has been so much support in our small community. The joy of flowers really seems to bring everyone together, regardless of the occasion.
We grow many varieties of cut flowers suitable for our zone 5 climate. Each year we discover what works best, which flowers are easiest to grow and flourish, and which flowers people just absolutely love!
Our top favourites include dahlias, sunflowers, zinnias and celosia. We are also trying our hand at growing lavender from seed this winter, and hopefully will develop a lavender patch this summer!
We are starting to plant some of our seeds already, and these seedlings will be transplanted out this spring and summer, after all the snow melts away.
Spring is on the horizon, and looking forward to another season on the flower farm here in Nova Scotia, Canada.
