Summer Workshops

We are so excited to be able to offer and host Workshops this summer.
The first two we have scheduled are Flower Farming Workshops on August 9 and another on August 24th.
These workshops are not only geared toward growing flowers on a larger scale but also will be very useful information for the home gardener.

The workshop on August 9th will feature detailed instruction on creating a hand held flower bouquet by Angelina of Hawthorn Floral Atelier.

The Aug 24th workshop will not include instruction of a bouquet but you will cut flowers from the gardens to take home with you.

We will walk through the gardens discussing the methods and processes we use to grow over 175 varieties of flowers and greens.  We will be sharing lots of detailed information and encourage lots of questions from the attendee's.

I have included links to the workshops on Eventbrite and on our Faceboook page.

As the gardens grow and mature we hope to offer tours of the gardens this summer.  These walkabouts would be geared towards individuals whom are not interested in learning about the growing of cut flowers.

2019 Spring Plant Sale

Thursday May 30 4pm - 8pm in Saskatoon
309 Mount Allison Court

It was a long winter and I seemed to have planted a little more than we need at the farm so we are having a Spring plant sale of specialty cutting varieties.  Most of everything we will have on offer can be used for cut flowers.  The varieties we grow are specific for the purpose of cut flower production and you will not generally find these selections at your local greenhouses.  Available are Perennials, Biennials, Annuals, Succulents and a few veggies.

*Please feel free to preorder via email at mistikacres@gmail.com, as many plants are limited.*
Payment accepted - cash, cheque and e-transfer.

We will also be bringing:
Herbs - Basil, Rosemary and Thyme
Peppers - Jalapeno, Cayenne, Paprika and Green
Tomatoes - Heirloom varieties
Squash - Spaghetti, Pumpkins, and Jarrhdale
Sweet Siberian Watermelon

$12.00 each
Dahlia's are the most loved plants here at the farm and we grow lots of them and I have many varieties available to purchase.  These plants are started in March and receive a lot of time and attention.  Unless noted they grow to a height of 3-4'.  They should be staked to protect them from any summer storms or strong winds.  Full to part sun.  The plants are all growing in gallon pots and have been hardened off and ready to be planted in your gardens.

We have many varieties potted in gallon pots.  Asiatics, LA Hybrids (a cross between an Easter Lily and Asiatic, which produces larger flowers than the asiatics with only a slight to no fragrance.  Hardiness zone is 4, but we have successfully overwintered all of the LA Hybrids we have trialed), OT Hybrid (cross between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies, hardiness zone 4), Tiger Lily and Martagon Lily.  Please google for photos.

The following are the varieties we will have available to purchase:

Tiger Lily $8.00 each - pink (2 available) 

Asiatic Lilies - $8.00 each
   Netty's Pride
   Forever Susan
   Monte Negro
   New Wave - maximum height 20-22"

OT Hybrid Lily $8.00 each - Touchstone

LA Hybrid Lily $8.00 each
   Original Love
   Bach (1 only)

Martagon Lily $15.00  
Martagons make a lovely addition to any garden, with amazing longevity, often living undisturbed in clumps for may years unlike Asiatic Lilies which require splitting and dividing frequently.   They will grow in full sun or part shade.  Some people feel you will see more flowers if planted in full sun.  Most varieties sport many flowers on tall stems, an average of 4'.  Martagons are known to 'pout' after being disturbed, so it is no surprise when a bulb sends up no growth or very little growth it's first year in a new home.  Patience is key with Martagon Lilies.
The following 2 varieties are available in limited quantities.
   Manitoba Morning
   Arabian Night
Landini Asiatic Lily

1 gallon $10.00

Edible herb, but I grow it to attract the beneficial insects to the garden.  The second year it produces it's flowers and seed heads and then dies.  I do allow it to self seed so I always have a continual crop of first and 2nd year plants.  Grows to 4-5' with a 2-3' spread.  Full to part sun.

Grows to 5', producing flowers in the 2nd year and then dispersing seed.  Many seedlings available.
Short lived cut flower.  Great landscape plant.
