Bloom Alert: April 8, 2014


April showers bring May flowers! Compost tea was applied to all of the bulbs around the farm and the cool rain is providing an excellent environment to spread the network of beneficial microorganisms in the soil.

We are still waiting for the first tulip bud….but the daffodils are nearly ready to burst! Although they won’t be ready for the Cold Crop Plant Sale this weekend, it shouldn’t be long. Check the Bloom Alert next week to see when we anticipate the 10,000 organic tulip harvest to happen.

Rodale Institute is THE place for pick-your-own ORGANIC flowers! Our Bloom Alerts will keep in the loop so you know when to come out to the farm for fresh organic flowers. Check back to see what is bursting forth each week or sign up for our e-newsletter and we’ll let you know when they are ready to pick!

For more information on the who, what, when, and where of pick-your-own flowers at the farm, contact our Garden Store.
