Quonquont’s cutting garden, home to more than 200 different flowers, begins to pump out blossoms in mid-June and continues until hard frost in October. Horticulture Manager Maida Goodwin is available to create all of the arrangements for your event, share the fun by creating some of the bouquets while you do the rest, or leave it all to you.
Our garden-style arrangements are created from the abundant flowers, foliage, seedpods, and twigs grown in Quonquont gardens and gathered on farm property. Inspired by the season, they are fresh and relaxed in style with combinations devised for your event from the flowers that are looking their best at the moment. Taking our cue from your vision, we aim to create designs to complement your color scheme and style while reflecting the look, feel, and fragrance of the season. Our commitment to seasonal, Quonquont-raised flowers means that though we cannot guarantee specific flowers or colors, but we can guarantee they will be beautiful. Those seeking a relaxed, meadow-inspired, “wildflower” look are probably the best match for what we offer.
In keeping with Quonquont Farm’s mission, we practice sustainable floristry, using seasonal all-natural elements grown or foraged on the Farm and not subject to post-harvest chemical treatments. We do not make use of invasive exotic plants. We do not use floral foam in our designs. We aim to use reusable, recyclable, or compostable vases, vessels, and supplies.
Stroll through the cutting gardens and pick as many flowers as you need for $15.50 per pound. Take the flowers with you to arrange elsewhere. Bring your own buckets or rent ours with a refundable deposit.
Flowers by the Bucket
Or you can leave the picking to us. Farmer’s Choice seasonal blend of mixed flowers and foliage is available for $25.00 per pound. Contact us to reserve your date.
