GARDEN UPDATES & DAFFODIL GUIDE
After so much cold and rain this winter and early spring, it is such a joy to have some color and fragrance back in the garden. At the moment my love affair with daffodils is in full force, which happens every spring when they show their happy faces. I just wrote a blog post sharing some of my favorite daffodil varieties, with photos. Daffodils are a great choice for the garden because they come back year after year with very little maintenance - just be sure to give the leaves time to die back on their own so they can feed the bulb.
PLANS FOR 2023
This year I'm offering some limited subscription sessions and flower deliveries, floral events and workshops, and am really leaning into the garden side - sharing flower growing tips and lessons learned through my podcast, blog, and some upcoming gardening & flower growing workshops! I am so thankful for this wonderful local community of clients, flower growers, and gardeners, and love connecting in this way.
With so many gorgeous tulips, daffodils, anemones, ranunculus, fritillaria, and other spring bulbs blooming, I've added some vase arrangement and bouquet deliveries to the shop!
Recently I had the pleasure of attending a floral workshop with Lucy Hunter, and over the past few weeks have been delivering spring subscriptions and a few vase arrangements - I am head over heels for spring flowers, and I'm very excited to offer more spring bouquets and arrangements over the next couple weeks!
MOTHER'S DAY FLOWER CROWN WORKSHOP
If you're looking to celebrate a special mom or parent in your life, I'm hosting a flower crown workshop on the Saturday of Mother's Day Weekend - May 13th. This is a great event to attend with friends and have a break from all of the hustle and bustle, working on something creative and beautiful with our freshly grown flowers that guests can wear home, or better yet take for a photo shoot around Seattle with your friends!
My flower friend Kristin from Neighborhood Flower Co., who also grows her own urban flowers here in Seattle, is cohosting the event with me. We have so many spring blooms that we can't wait to share with you on this day of fun in a beautiful venue!
FLOWER FRIENDS PODCAST
If you're interested in gardening or floral design, I started the Flower Friends podcast last year, with some amazing guests. There are episodes on seed starting, sheet mulching, building garden beds, and landscape design for your home, as well as interviews with LA designer Yasmine Mei, dahlia queen LeeAnn Huber from Coseytown Flowers, roses with Arielle Zamora from Small Yard Flowers, a farm tour of the Farmhouse Flower Farm with Marryn Mathis, and so much more. I'm currently working on Season 4 and releasing episodes weekly, like our most recent episodes on daffodils with Jason Delaney from PHS Daffodils, and chrysanthemums with Miranda Bowman from Wildrye Farm.
I set up a separate Flower Friends podcast Instagram account so you can see when episodes air, view photos from guests, and add your burning questions to my interview outlines!
GGS ON SLOW FLOWERS PODCAST & REDFIN'S BLOG
Grow Girl Seattle was recently featured on the Slow Flowers Meetup and Podcast, discussing our pottery/floral design collaboration with Riyo by Juri.
I was also asked by RedFin to share some flower decorating tips for your home!
I hope you are having a great start to spring, and hope that we will connect soon!
All my best,
Grow Girl Seattle
