Local blooms abound in Madison area
Supported Agriculture model, now common throughout Madison for purchasing locally grown produce. The idea is the same as with traditional CSA: pay in advance of the season for a share of what the farm grows that year, and you'll receive elegant, seasonal flower bouquets. Mad Lizzie’s spring share is already sold out, but you can sign up for the Summer Bounty CSA (delivered weekly, biweekly or monthly through June, July, August and September) or Sunflower Power (delivered for six weeks beginning in mid-July) offerings. Deliveries occur at local businesses in Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains. Madeline Elizabeth (the namesake of Mad Lizzie’s) holds a dainty bouquet.

In addition to the Bouquet CSA subscription, you can find loads of other options in the “What’s Bloomin’?” section of their website, including custom floral design, buckets of blooms for the flower arraigning DIYers, succulent gifts and living frames.Sunborn GardensSunborn Gardens, a local institution, has been providing flowers to the Madison community since 1975 when Carol Larsen attended her first Dane County Farmers' Market under a bright yellow patio umbrella. Larsen, a pioneer in using organic growing practices for cut flowers, has left a large footprint in the local flower scene since then. Alongside running her own business, she founded the University of Wisconsin–Madison Beginning Flower Grower School and initiated the development of Fair Field Flowers, which is a cooperative partnership of flower growers in south central Wisconsin. She's also an active member of the Association of Specialty Cut Flowers and has helped them grow in Madison. Hans Larsen harvests blooms in a greenhouse at Sunborn Gardens. A series of three greenhouses were built in the last 15 years to extend their growing season. Photo by Copper Key Visuals Hans Larsen harvests blooms in a greenhouse at Sunborn Gardens.
