    How do you get bloom stems so long and so soon?

  4. Jeanne T on July 31, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    How exciting for you! You’re doing it! Very encouraging.

  5. Aimee Williams on July 31, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Everything looks amazing!! Where did you find the cantelope Echinacea seeds? I’ve been wanting to grow it but I can’t find the seeds.

  6. Cherie Rangel on July 31, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Thanks so much for posting. You are so busy yet find the time for these aweso.e videos!! Thank you again.
    Btw….I commented on your cantelope echinacea on one of your Instagram posts. I am just in love with that flower. I have looked everywhere for seeds. I can only find plant starts. You had mentioned you started with a plant as well. Have you been able to find seeds anywhere?
    Awesome video and worth the wait πŸ™‚

  12. Garden Girl on July 31, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Excellent video! Fun to watch you harvest and sort the flowers!

  13. Alissa Eyre on July 31, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Everything looks beautiful and healthy! It’s so cool to see how many flowers you can grow in a smaller space!! So encouraging to those who want to sell flowers but don’t have acres to grow on!

    Really enjoyed the video and all the insights you give. I just thought you keep repeating facts once to often.

    Congratulations to your first florist customer. πŸ™‚ looking forward to your next video!

  18. Donna Bauer of Brilliance by Dezign on July 31, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    I am really glad a florist has sought you out rather then buying overseas!

    How do you decipher that price list? Particularly for the sunflowers.

  19. Madonna Schmid on July 31, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    Congratulations on you florist sales! Super exciting:)
