Petals on the Porch
In an effort to share our sustainably grown flowers with health and safety in mind, we created Petals on the Porch. We want to put flowers in your homes especially at this time of isolation and social distancing and we think inviting folk to the farm for flower pick ups during blocks of time will get our flowers into your hands and homes safely.
So, weeks we have flowers for sale we will post our Flower Shop availability and we will create prepaid bouquets or buckets for pickups at the farm most oftenTuesday evening and/or Thursday evening at Aunt Willie’s Porch and/or the Homeplace Porch. Pickups will be during a posted time slot and since bouquets will be prepaid online there will not be a large crowd and everyone can take flowers home with no contact. No need to rush as all bouquets or buckets will be the same size and similarly beautiful! Prices may change from week to week with the type and quantity of flowers blooming and pick up days may change occasionally as well, but all will be posted here and on social media. We ask that you only touch what you select and we also ask that you wear please wear a mask till all this dust settles.
Petals on the Porch – Large Fall Bouquet , Friday, September 11 6:30 p.m.
Pick-ups for prepaid bouquets will be on Aunt Willie’s Porch at 207 Bruce Doan Rd., Blountville, TN 37617. It’s the red brick bungalow house on the corner with an old hay rake near the driveway. As you turn onto Bruce Doan Rd., you pull directly into Aunt Willie’s driveway. The flowers will be arranged in a pretty bubble vase.
You may pull to the end of the driveway where there is a turnaround or park in the front yard. Please, if someone else in on the porch, wait a minute. Bouqets are equally beautiful and because they are prepaid there will be one just for you! Please be careful if you park in the front yard to not back into the bank opposite the driveway and don’t come too close to the bank on Bondtown Road.
And PLEASE wear a MASK!

This week, besides dahlias we have such lovely “big” flowers including tardiva and limelight hydrangea and sedum which are already drying on the bush and will last weeks. You can either just leave them in the vase with or without water (pull out the other stems as they wilt) or take them out and hang them as you like. They look pretty just hanging upside down with a ribbon attached.
