How do I care for my fresh flowers?

What is a Bouquet Subscription?
By purchasing a seasonal Bouquet Subscription, you are making an investment in Sourwood Creek Farm, similar to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Your purchase allows us to buy the needed seeds and supplies to keep the flowers blooming, and you get four, six, or eight beautiful bouquets in return, depending on which subscription you purchased.
Your bouquet comes wrapped in kraft paper and will be ready for pickup once a week. See below for pickup information.
Please keep in mind that farming is subject to conditions that are beyond our control. We reserve the right to reschedule a weekly subscription, if needed.
All bouquets are growers choice and will be selected based on what is in season that week.
Where do I pickup my flowers?
Pickup for subscription bouquets is available on Wednesdays at The Wrinkled Egg in Flat Rock from 10am-5pm or at Independent Bean Roasters on 7th Ave in downtown Hendersonville from 8am-2pm. Please specify pickup preference when checking out.
Bouquets should be picked up before the end of the business day on Wednesday. Bouquets not picked up on Wednesday will be donated. If you are unable to pick up your bouquet, consider sending a friend or family member to get it for you.
Can I buy flowers without a subscription?
Yes! Simply place an order online for a bouquet. At checkout, select delivery for a $5 fee Monday-Friday or select the Subscription Drop off Location for free on Wednesdays. If I have extra bouquets or flowers available following a pop up shop or event, I will make sure to let everyone know via IG or FB. Find us on social media to stay up-to-date.
How do I pay for my flowers?
Please pay for your flowers by placing an order on our website.
