Lynn Hopkins runs Best In Bloom Bouquets based in Annandale. She grows lots of flowers and you can find her at the Dvoor Farmers' Market every Sunday as well as at Basil Bandwagon - she delivers fresh flowers here every Thursday.
"I do specialty cut flowers," Lynn told me. All through the spring and summer, she is busily growing blooms that she arranges in bouquets or provides as cut flowers.
"Right now I still have tulips and some daffodils, as well as iris, alliums, and peonies," she added. "Coming on are snapdragons, sunflowers, and all kinds of Asiatic lilies which are very long-lasting." Ready now are these early bloomers and summer flowers are yet to come.
In addition, she does designs for weddings and events. She will also take orders to deliver a fresh bouquet to anyone every other week. These can be picked up at the Dvoor market or she will deliver locally.
For more info, call Lynn at 908-892-8201 or visit BestInBloomBouquets.com.
Randi Eckel runs the Toadshade Wildflower Farm outside Frenchtown. Specialties here are wildflower plants and seeds native to this area. The mail order nursery is family operated and located at 53 Everittstown Road. Visit Toadshade at the Dvoor Farmers' Market on Sundays.
"All plants are natives," Randi told me. "We propagate them all ourselves--no plants are dug from the wild."
The offerings include plants as well as seeds, and the listings are quite extensive at Toadshade. For example, there are different types of asters, coneflowers, violets, sedges, thistles, iris, ferns and sunflowers. Trees include red oak, red cedar, sweetgums, dogwoods and more.
The catalog is very informative. Plants are grouped by favorites of bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, as well as plants preferring wet or dry conditions, shady or sunny locations - and everything in between.
Randi holds a doctorate in entomology and she is very sensitive to the interactions between insects and plant life. Butterflies, she noted, need wildflowers. An example is the monarch's dependence on milkweed.
"We will be holding a plant sale on Saturday, June 2, 10 to 2," said Randi. "If you have a particular plant you're interested in, contact us ahead of time and we'll bring it that day."
Toadshade will be joining with Wild Ridge Nursery at the second annual Lambertville Goes Wild Native Plant Sale at Cavallo Park, 2 Mount Hope St. in Lambertville. Many native plants and seeds will be for sale. Experts will be available to answer your questions, including people from Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve.
Remember that this is a mail order operation - not a nursery open to the public. But Toadshade attends the Dvoor Farmers' Market, Flemington, on Sundays. Go to Toadshade.com for lots of info and the catalog. Or call Randi at 908-996-7500 or email your questions to Toadshade@Toadshade.com.
Al Warr can be reached at 610-253-0432 or email AlWarr16@gmail.com.

Their son Neil Bassin is listed on various websites as having also owned it. In 2013, another website said Buckingham Florist was owned by Kim Park, who also owns Annandale Florist and Tysons Flower Affair.As of last week, the flower shop’s location at 301 N. Glebe Road in the Buckingham Shopping Center was shuttered, an empty shell with no fixtures or fittings and some of its tiled floor ripped up.

Art from poet Robyn Marie Butt's third in a series of four books relating to flowers, with audio of her poetry, is ...
Butt’s third installment in what will become a series of four books of poetry about flowers, is currently on display at Annandale House in Tillsonburg.Butt, an award winning writer and dramatist, describes her epic project as “frequently making her wonder, but never making her regret.”Art lovers can listen to Butt’s poems through an MP3 player, while admiring the art works.“Poetry is an art form that is meant to be performed,” Butt said. “We have forgotten that when poems get stuck between the covers.”Featuring the art of Robin Tatham and John Ens, the show opened last week and runs until April 2.All of Butt’s books four books have been or will be dedicated to “to the human experience of flowers.”The first book of poetry dealt more with garden flowers, while the second focused on wildflowers.The third book is dedicated to lives and works of artist Mary Delany, with poems illustrated by Tatham, and early 20th century English physician, homeopath and mystic Edward Bach.Delany, whose subject was frequently flowers, was an English gentlewoman in the 18th century, well known for detailed embroidery that she designed herself, and took up collage as a widow at the age of 72.“No one knows this but she invented the art of collage,” Butt said. “I love that she invented a whole new art form and mastered it. She kept up with it until, at age 88, her eyesight was gone.”The second part of the books is focused on Bach, well known in Europe as the inventor of the Bach Flower Remedies, or tinctures made from flowers.Ba...

Freeze Warning Overnight: How to Protect Your Plants
Silver Spring, Columbia, Ellicott City, and Aberdeen.
In Virginia, communities in the warning area include: Prince Frederick, Reston, Herndon, Annandale, Centreville, Chantilly, Mclean, Franconia, Arlington and Alexandria.
The Weather Service warns: “A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.”
If you're a gardener, then you've harvested most of your bounty by now, but there are several frost hardy plants that can survive even if the overnight temperatures drop to 28 degrees. So, leeks, scallions, chives, brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, parsley, beets, carrots, winter squash, pumpkins and sage should be OK, according to the Vegetable Gardener website.
Here are some steps you can take when a frost or freeze threatens, according to TodaysHomeowner.com.
Bring Indoors: Frost-tender plants in containers should be brought inside during cold weather. Dig up tender bulbs and store them in a cool dry place.Water Plants: Water plants thoroughly before a freeze to prevent desiccation and to add insulating water to the soil and plant cells.Protect Tender Sprouts: Cover tender plants overnight with an inverted bucket or flower pot, or with a layer of mulch. Be sure to uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Cover Shrubs and Trees: Larger plants can be covered with fabric, old bed sheets, burlap, or commercial frost cloths (avoid using plastic). For best results, drape the cover over a frame to keep it from touching the foliage. Fabric covers help to trap heat from the soil, so make sure your cover drapes to the ground. Uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Here's a look at the coming week's weather forecast, from the National Weather Service:
Saturday night: Mostly clear. Lows in the mid 30s. West winds around 5 mph.Sunday: Sunny. Highs in the upper 50s. West winds around 5 mph.Sunday night: Mostly clear. Lows around 40.Monday: A slight chance of showers after 8am. Mostly sunny, with a high near 60. Chance of precipitation is 20%.Monday night: A chance... (Patch.com)Feb 3, 2016
