I need your help

Written by

Floret Flower Farm

Yesterday I received the kindest, most heartfelt email from a reader.
He shared that after a series of difficult circumstances, he had to close down his flower farm.
But time has passed, things have improved and he’s starting over this coming spring.

Floret Flower Farm

I have offered to share as many dahlia tubers as I can scrape together, to help him get back in the game. While we normally have lots of extras, I’m not certain it will be enough.
So, I thought I’d reach out into this great wide world of ours and ask for your help.

Do any of you lovely farmers, backyard growers, passionate gardeners want to pitch in and join me in giving someone a leg up?  He’s not picky on color or variety, he just needs a good start.

    OH! So kind of you to help and reach out for him. I’d love to help; however, as a new gardener I don’t have much to offer bulb/tuber wise. I agree with Honey Bee – this man needs a Kickstarter. The earth truly does laugh in flowers and I’d bet he’d reach his goal quickly with all the people who appreciate what gardening and flowers do for the soul. Please let us know if there are any developments on the funding end.

    Can he use seeds, or is he just looking for tubers? I have lots of flower seeds and get can get more.
