The Latest and Greatest
recent projects around the farm
We are currently starting to plant for summer time blooms. Its crazy to think that a few short months ago we were anxiously waiting for spring flowers.
This is our ranunculus field. We have around 6000 corms tucked into the ground.
This is so exciting. We have about 10 boxes made so far- these will hold bulbs and other early spring flowers.
This is a love/hate winter task. It is so exciting to multiply our dahlia stock but it can get boring really fast.
We are a mother-daughter run flower farm specializing in growing and specialty cut flowers in the heart of the Central Valley- Oakdale, California. Not only do we grow the flowers but we also offer hand-tied bouquets and design arrangements for special occasions.
We are so blessed to live in an area that has such an amazing climate that allows us to grow such a wide range of flowers- zone 9b is awesome!
We are dedicated to offering our community the freshest flowers and sharing the joy that flowers bring to us with other!
We often get asked "How did you guys have the idea to start Backroad Blooms?" It's honestly a hard question for us to answer because we don't have a definite answer of how we started. We started by reading books, following flower farmers on instagram, watching videos, joining conferences and seminars, and alot of trial and error! My dad took wind of our idea quickly and created a few small beds next to our house- maybe 2 feet by 35 feet. We slowly just started adding a few plants of everything we wanted to try and grow. This was about mid-May so we were a little late to the game by then for summer flowers. Almost everything had super short stems- nothing ideal for a market bouquet or vase arrangement but we were thrilled. Harvesting the first blooms from the seeds we had carefully sown months before-it was magical and we were hooked.
