The Front Yard Flower Co. is a small urban flower farm based out of Vancouver, BC. Growing flowers is something that gives me an immense amount of joy and sharing them is even better. From asters to zinnias and everything else in between, every flower has its place and adds its own unique spirit to a hand tied bouquet. I hope to share with you some of the beauty that is lovingly grown on the farm each year!
Chemical Free and Grown with Love
From the tiniest of poppy seed to the larger tulip bulbs, each plant is grown and nurtured with loving care to ensure the best quality locally grown can offer. I don't use any chemicals on the plants and focus on regenerative farming methods. That means that I aim to improve the soil I grow in which in turn, grows better flowers!
