Spring 2019 newsletter, fresh news from Anchored Roots Farm!

The Lily, what a beautiful, underrated flower. 

Lilies are a beautiful flower, that come in many colors, shapes and sizes. They have a long vase life, tall and study stems, which make for great flowers in fresh cut arrangements.

We grow them a few times throughout the season as they are one of the only flowers that can perform under low light AND full sun. 

One thing we really want you to know about lilies is that they are poisonous to cats if ingested. And I...

These five tips below will get a week (or more!) from most of your fresh flowers:
