Bring local flowers in to your life.
There are several farm farms around Winnipeg that grow gorgeous blooms in big bouquets and buckets. And let’s admire that they are mostly women wassssup female farmers.
Chances are they supply a market or independent florist near you, too, so keep an eye out and keep a small farm going.

While I “farm” flowers (that is, grow some to sell them) I don’t consider my property a “farm” because it doesn’t look like a farm. I designed my cut flower gardens ornamentally and in an intermingled fashion modelled on nature, so there’s no rows or a tractor – just beds and borders – and therefore I have waaaay less blooms than can support a huge order.
I do specialize in wildflowers, prairie grasses, dogwood and willow, unusual or heirloom cut flowers and wheat, and I also sell dried floral supplies, wreaths, wreath frames, etc. to get your craft on.
If you or someone you know wants to be added to this list, please let me know. It is by no means a list of all the flower farmers around here, just as many as I could find!
