Introduction from Kelly

I've been chatting about American Flowers Week on Instagram — it’s so exciting we get to celebrate collectively! I encourage you to post using the #americanflowersweek hashtag and meet new friends in the process! I also encourage you to tag Debra — the founder. She would love to see what’s blooming in your neck of the woods. Debra is the author of the 50 Mile Bouquet and founder of Slow Flowers and the Slow Flowers Podcast. It’s a great resource if you are looking to connect with American Farmers.

We’re kicking off American Flowers Week by sharing a free video from my American farmer, Lee of Goldenrod Gardens!  Lee has been working with me for several years, providing amazing plants for my wedding work.  She’s introduced me to so many fantastic plants, and has shared so much of her farming knowledge with me.  Each time she pops over to drop off flowers in the cooler we take a quick look at my seedlings and she helps out — "these need magnesium, add some lime over here, neem oil for these bugs." — I’m so thankful she’s sharing with us. This video is about amending soil, nutrients and growing snapdragons. Enjoy!
