Urbana's Market at the Square

Posted 8/12/2013 7:26am by Kent Miles.

With the start of August we are harvesting more new flower varieties on a weekly basis. Some of these are in the pictures below.

 

Our Zinnias this month have been just " Fantastic  " if I may say and our positive comments from our customers at Urbana's Market at the Square have been many. They (customers) are getting 7 days or more vase life on the Zinnias. The colors of the Ziinnias are so vivid and they are a people magnet for the market patrons walking by who are not yet regular customers of ours.

Speaking of SUNFLOWERS this month,our newest addition to the varieties that we offer " COCONUT ICE " is a big hit. We brought 20 bunches in on the first market in August and they were gone by 9:30 in the morning. If you are not familiar with this variety it has creamy white petals with a dark center disc. Coconut Ice is another pollenless variety we grow. So this past Saturday ( 10th ) I brought 25 bunches and they were the first variety to be wiped out. Our other novelty variety we grow is Ring of Fire.

 

Our colored Hydrangea are a very popular item at our market. They are in limited quanities the past several weeks. Customers are purchasing them every week and getting are averaging 10 days in the vases in their homes.About one more week we will have them at the market and then another variety of hydrangea will in abundace thru September . " LIMELIGHT " Hydrangea is very popular for weddings and home decorating. It's a white conical blooms are long lasting.
