Do you dream of a yard full of beautiful cut flowers and filling your Instagram feed with their gorgeous blooms? If you’ve read the Floret Farm’s Cut Flower book or seen their Instagram feed, chances are you’ve caught the flower bug and are wondering how you could ever make your flower fantasies come true. Just me? Anyway.
I interviewed Saskatoon’s Danielle Fulawka, a full-time artist and cut flower gardener (yes, you read that correctly!!) and asked her to spill her secrets on how she was able to start a Floret-style flower farm in her small city backyard on the cheap. She was able to start her business from scratch for $2000 and break even in the first year.
Kristen is a former farm kid turned urban gardener who owns the popular gardening website, Shifting Roots. She is obsessed with growing flowers and pushing the limits of what can be grown in her zone 3b garden. She also loves to grow tomatoes, but oddly enough, dislikes eating them raw.
