Cut flower Selections
We will have a huge variety of cut flowers available seasonally throughout the year. From early Spring through Fall something beautiful will always be growing at the Manor. All flowers mentioned below are seasonally available to order fresh from our fields at a fraction of the cost of florist flowers. Our flowers are also cut fresh daily not shipped in a truck from 100s or thousands of miles away. We also practiced sustainable agricultural practices - meaning no chemicals are used during the production of the flower crops.
This year we plan on growing 7 colors/ varieties of sunflowers. These will range from bright yellow, multi color, to deep burgundy. In addition, we have plans for adding a sunflower seed field (sunflowers for consumable seeds). These will not only make a beautiful back drop but also serve as a sunflower seed crop for roasting and feeding birds.
