Floral availability typically starts in early to mid May. We grow over one hundred floral varieties and are proud of each one. We grow peonies, sunflowers, dahlias, hydrangea, lisianthus, ornamental kale, tulips, daffodils, lilacs and many other rare and specialty cut flowers. As with all field grown flowers, these images and start dates are a generalisation of what to expect. Flowers are of course weather dependant and so these are just guidelines. Please note that many of these images are not our own, and are general photos of varieties that we grown. If you'd like to see what we have available in real time during the growing season, please have a look at our Instagram photos below!
May is when spring flowers first start becoming available. May is filled with fragrant flowers, from garden roses to apple blossoms. May is also the month when temperatures and weather can be the most difficult to anticipate. Highlights include double tulips, fragrant roses, anemones, and the ever stunning lily of the valley.
June is when field flowers and perennials start growing and blooming. Some of the most beautifully and gently scented flowers that we grow are available in June, like our local peonies, lilacs, stock and sweet peas. June truly is peony paradise, as it is usually the only month that local peonies are available.
July is when the annuals really start blooming, and many varieties that start blooming in July will continuously bloom until September. July has some beautiful colour options, as colourful sunflowers and rudbeckias start to bloom, but gentle coloured astilbe, foxglove and sweet peas are available as well.
August truly is the most abundant month at the farm, with the highest volumes and variety available. Dahlias and lisianthus both are available beginning in August, and they truly are some of the most stunning flowers available in Ontario. Asters and celosia are available as well, and August is truly the month with the most freedom and creativity.
September begins to see the slight shift into more fall coloured flowers, as coloured foliage and autumn berries and grasses become available. Highly sought-after japanese anemone become available, as well as sedum and ornamental kale. Dahlias and lisianthus continue to bloom and September is a gorgeous month of late summer and early autumn colour palettes.
October marks the steady decline of field availability as the winter grows ever closer. Availability of most flowers ends at frost, which is typically around or slightly after Thanksgiving. Farmer's markets end in October and we have limited amounts of tender blooms. Dried leaves, grasses, rosehips and ornamental kale are some of the few things that are available until the end of the month.
