In our four years of growing cut flowers, we have realized that making bouquets is the most profitable and satisfying way for us to market them. Virtually all of our flowers now are made into bouquets and sold at farmers’ market. In order to have an adequate number of flowers to make bouquets all season long, we have to plan our plantings well in advance, and we’ve found it helps to have a dozen or so bouquet recipes to guide us. We have learned what we grow well and what sells well at the farmers’ market. With these bouquets in mind, we now use our field and hoophouses much more efficiently and profitably.
