At South Fork Flowers we practice several innovative, organic methods of planting, care and harvesting our field grown annual and perennials. In the spring some of our favorite varieties are ranunculus, sweet peas, anemones, snapdragons, larkspur and tulips. As summer temps start to set in, so do our rows of lisianthus, sunflowers, dahlias, celosia, zinnias, sedum, rudbeckia, feverfew, and Bells of Ireland. Fall brings about a slower pace and cooler mornings in the fields as we harvest heirloom chrysanthemums, zinnias, dinnerplate dahlias, ornamental peppers and amaranthus. These are just a handful of the abundance that fills our fields each season, for more details on the varieties and time available see the flower calendar. Each year we strive to expand our varieties and pride ourselves in using the highest quality seeds and bulbs.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 80 percent of all flowers sold in the U.S. are imported, primarily from South American industrial flower farms that have a history of using harsh chemical fertilizers, toxic pesticides and unfair labor practices. At the U.S. border, flowers must be fumigated to clear customs. Conversely, South Fork Flowers offers locally grown organic flowers with guaranteed freshness and long vase life. All of the flowers are hand picked and grown from seed right here in the Idaho backcountry. Each flower is especially cared for to ensure the experience that flowers are suppose to offer, beauty and food for the soul.
