Fleur Flower Farm Garden Kit: 15 Plants
( / )
Marlee is not afraid to cop to failures and celebrate successes in the garden, grow these bundles along with her and dish on what’s working!
Fleur gravitates towards romantic, soft blooms (her wedding bouquet was the inspiration for launching her farm, after all!) and this collection is hand-picked by her to embody that romance.

Behold! A lovely cutting garden designed by Marlee Imbarrato of Fleur Flower Farm. The Echo Lavender Lisianthus is the most impossibly pretty shade of light purple. Light Apricot Vogage 2 Lisianthus's big, ruffled, pale-pink-buff-butter blossoms are absolute perfection. We're digging the haunting, honey-scented, vintage feel of the buttercream buff-white Fata Morgana Scabiosa. Potomac Lavender Snapdragons, North American native flowers, are candy-like purple and pink spikes of ruffled beauty. Cupcakes and Saucer Cosmos are such a cool shape, each bloom is like a delicate cupcake wrapper, with a small saucer inside.
Includes 15 young plants, 3 of each of these five varieties, for you to grow the garden of your dreams: Echo Lavender Lisianthus, Light Apricot Vogage 2 Lisianthus, Fata Morgana Scabiosa, Potomac Lavender Snapdragons, Cupcakes and Saucer Cosmos.

How to Plant
Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water.
Where to Plant
Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil.
When to Plant
Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring.
When to Expect Blooms
All summer and autumn long.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick the flowers regularly (Bring the flowers in! Make bouquets! Have fun!) to encourage more blooms. And ask us any questions along the way.
Good quality soil will make all these plants extra happy.
