U-Pick

Claudia Lockhart shed photo_optIt's hard to find someone who doesn't love to pick flowers. People of all ages enjoy it and children especially love it. I have families who come year after year and picking flowers is part of their summer traditions. Read the testimonials page to get a feel for how much people love the upick.

rudbeckia, phlox, blue bench 2012Flowers are marked by the row and in the self service shed you will find recycled jars and jugs full of water that you are welcome to take home with you. I also have  a supply of flower preservative for you to use--put a scoop in your water to keep your flowers happy. There are also scissors and notepads/pencils for you to keep track of what you pick. Most stems are priced between 20 and 30 cents each--with some costing less (lavender is 5 cents a stem) and some costing more (peonies are $1.25.) There is an honor system money box in the shed and a box to make change. You are welcome to leave a check as well made out to Omena Cut Flowers.

I am not always in the garden--I work four days a week as the communications director for the Leelanau Conservancy, but there are instructions and all the supplies you need in the shed. You will figure it out...hundreds of people have already done so! For those who are too busy to pick or would rather not, I usually have some bouquets to go in the shed, as well as a selection of vases for sale.
