At Omena Cut Flowers we have over 40 varieties of annuals and perennials. Our selection of flowers changes with the season, starting with daffodils and ending with dahlias and mums, so there is always something new blooming from May to early November - yes, November. Because we are on the water we rarely get a hard frost until mid-November, so dahlias and all the annuals keep cranking out the blooms. Below, you will find a chart showing what blooms when, another chart with our prices, as well as some tips for how to care for your flowers and bouquets.

Flower care tips
Here are a few tips to get the most out of your Omena Cut Flowers. Feel free to contact us with and questions or to get more information!
Tip 1 - Keep the water level in your vase high - they drink a lot during the week!
Tip 2 - Change water mid-week and add 1 tsp. of flower preservative
Tip 3 - Keep away from fruits and veggies which emit a gas called ethylene that makes flowers fade fast
Tip 4 - Snip off faded blooms (like iris and lilies) -secondary, closed blooms will open
Tip 5 - Pull out faded stems so your bouquet always looks fresh. Condense the longest lasting blooms into a bud vase and put it on your nightstand - and then come back to pick another bouquet!
