The Blooming Sweetheart is a an acre patch that we have created on the farm for the public to come and experience picking their own flowers and creating a bouquet to take home and enjoy. We have grown over 20,000 Sweet William (Dianthus) from seed, grown them in cells and once they were ready, planted them. There are just under 5,000 red Sweet William planted in the middle of the patch in the shape of a heart and just over 15,000 mixed colour Sweet William bordering the heart. It took a team of 6 of us 3 days to plant by hand which included shaping the heart.
The Sweetheart will be open to the public on 30th and 31st of October and 6th and 7th of November 2021. Tickets can be purchased from the link on this page. The price includes entry, harvesting 10 stems of Sweet William which will make a beautiful bouquet and wrapped by our staff, jumping castle, picnic areas to enjoy the day as well as some other little surprises. There will be a coffee cart and food truck available as well as face painting and amazing photo opportunities be it with friends or family. Feel free to bring your own rug and drinks to enjoy the day on the farm.
