Prairie Blossom is a family run business founded in 2017. We are located on the prairies of Manitoba, west of Winnipeg. We grow organic and sustainable, seasonal cut flowers that will add so much beauty to your home, office, or special events. Our focus is to provide our community with beautiful fresh flowers, whether it be through our CSA bouquet subscriptions, farmer's markets, florists, or grocery stores. We're also available to create floral designs for your special events so please contact us through our contact form.
Throughout my childhood, my mother, aside from her large vegetable garden, always had many flower beds filled with bedding plants like petunias, snapdragons, marigolds, geraniums, and many other varieties. Her love for gardening had a huge impact on my life and I developed a deep love for nature and flowers in particular.
By the time I was in my early teens, my parents had moved the family off the farm and closer to the city. I took over all the lawn mowing and weeding jobs on our small acreage. I always wanted to tag along with mom when she went to the garden centre to buy a summer's worth of bedding plants and eventually helped her choose which plants to purchase. I also took it upon myself to dig up new beds to fill with more flowers.
Fast forward a number of years, I married a cattle farmer. We purchased a small farm to start our own family and dreams. I soon learned that purchasing flowers was not cheap so I became very limited on our farm but always dreamed of someday having a field of flowers to enjoy.
Almost three years ago I met Erin from Floret Flowers through Instagram and this dream came back to life in a very powerful way. In spring of 2016 I decided to venture into the world of starting flowers from seed. My home filled up with beautiful little plants and by summer's end I had my field of flowers. I spent my summer learning, tending, and most enjoyably, cutting flowers and creating bouquets for our home as well as any friends and family that would stop by.
This year, 2017, I'm looking forward to more learning and venturing into marketing our flowers so you too can enjoy them in your home or events.
