If you are looking to support an ecologically friendly local florist, we’re your source!

Our gardens and studio are located in beautiful, rural Craftsbury Common, Vermont. We grow an incredible diversity of both heirloom and newly stylish flowers in several gardens, amidst old pastures, northern forest and wild apple trees. Each season we seek out exciting flower varieties, grow most of the plants from seed, and cram the garden spaces full, using organic high-intensity gardening techniques to produce plentiful blooms.

Blossoming Bough Flower Farm grew out of Eva's obsession with flowers, especially unique and hard-to-find varieties, as she learned from and worked with other florists and at perennial nurseries over the last several years.

Our flower garden is home to an amazing diversity of birds and other wildlife. Hummingbirds, American bluebirds, indigo buntings, bees, and monarch butterflies are some residents of the garden. As a botanist and naturalist by education, Eva highly values the ecological boost the garden provides to the local wildlife.

Why Local Flowers?

Locally Vermont-grown flowers are, simply put, healthier for you and for us, plus their freshness and true fragrance is unsurpassed! They are important to us because they have a much lighter impact on the world's ecological health-- and our health-- than do flowers shipped in from all over the world. We use our flowers, which we cultivate using high-intensity organic methods, in our designs from May until October. The blooms we provide you during our growing season are clean of all pesticides and other yucky substances.

The rest of the year, when our northern Vermont garden is too frosty for flowers, we use sustainably foraged local materials, plus Certified American-Grown and Certified Sustainably Grown flowers whenever possible.

Your health, our health, and the health of wildlife and the planet are our ultimate guiding principles, beyond the simple love of growing plants ourselves.

“The first time I caught a glimpse of Eva’s curated flower picks, it was like seeing my own dreamy flower wishlist staring back at me. Eva’s own design sense and her interest in my goals for each order, makes our exchanges feel more like a valuable collaboration than a anonymous purchase. She. . . updates her stock each year, focusing on subtle and unique color palettes, blooms that are on trend and can withstand Vermont growing conditions, and classic romantic garden style flowers that smell and look heavenly. Eva takes great care in each stem she brings me, is an easy communicator, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with!”
— Erin O., owner of Nectar & Root floral design studio

Wholesale Flowers

Wholesale flowers from our gardens are available, in limited quantities, to fellow floral designers from May until the first hard frost, usually in early October. We offer small amounts of over 50 types of flowers and foliage throughout the season, most notably unusual narcissus in spring; foxgloves in early summer until fall; high quality sweet peas all summer and fall; and dahlias of select florist-favorite colors in late summer to frost. We sometimes deliver to your location but generally ask that you come pick up your order.
