Flowers starts for your garden!

In addition to vegetable and herbs, a healthy garden should have flowers in it. Not only are they beautiful, they attract beneficial insects by providing a food source and habitat for them. At the same time they create a little separation between your crops such that when a pest does come along it is a challenge for it to reach the next plant. We are planting many flower seed in our greenhouse to plant in our fields and we will also sell them in four packs and 3" pots. They flowers we grow are known to be great for beneficial insect and some even have edible parts (not all!).
Some flowers we will have available are:
Snapdragons
larkspur
cosmos
yarrow
calendula
zinnia
sunflowers
petunias
and more

Would you like some flower starts that you don't see listed here? E-mail me and I will try to include it in the mix if not this year, next year!
