. . . as explained by Jan Roozen, Choice Bulb Farms
Here is an informative little video, excerpted from a much longer discussion with our friend and flower farmer, Jan Roozen of Choice Bulb Farms on April 11, 2010. Jan, who farms in the Skagit Valley of northwest Washington state, generously shares all manner of important flower knowledge with customers in his flower stall at the Ballard Farmer’s Market on Sundays. I suspect that some of you will already know this information, but for others it will be like a light bulb of recognition being switched on. And for others yet, it may come as a complete surprise. Which is it for you?
You simply cannot tap into this sort of time-tested knowledge just anywhere. Support your local flower growers and learn to see them for the magicians and repositories of knowledge that they truly are. And then take some of their stunning, seasonal flowers home with you to beautify your world.
