#36 – Mother’s Day Flowers, Part 2 – Stock, Snapdragons & Tulips with Gretel Adams

by | May 11, 2023

Would you like to grow beautiful stock, snapdragons, and tulips to include in your Mother’s Day bouquets? Today, Layne is joined again by Gretel Adams of Sunny Meadows Flower Farm to continue discussing her farm’s top five Mother’s Day flowers. Episode 35 (part 1) featured anemones and ranunculus, and today’s episode (part 2) features the remaining three crops – stock, snapdragons, and tulips. Layne and Gretel cover each crop’s significance, favorite colors and varieties, whether the plants are grown in structures or in the field, succession planting tips, general bloom times, the number of stems each plant is expected to yield, and other growing and harvesting tips. Towards the end of the episode, Layne asks Gretel some fun questions about becoming a mother. Listen to the podcast and learn how Gretel’s team grows stock, snapdragons, and tulips for Sunny Meadows Flower Farm’s biggest flower holiday of the year!
