My name is Hannah Hunt, and I am the owner of and designer for Golden Thistle Design in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. I love wedding floral design, but once I opened my business and started designing full-time, I became concerned about the impact of the industry upon both the environment and my health.
Many perennial plants can be added to your cut flower farm or garden that provide various benefits to your operation. From diversifying offerings by bridging gaps between spring bulbs and summertime annuals to adding new interest to seasons in which harvests might become slightly repetitive from your fields, their blooms are valuable crops for farmers markets, florist sales, and wedding designs.
