“Earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
the gal behind Flaura Gardens
When I’m not busy buzzing around in the garden, growing gorgeous fresh blooms and vegetables, you can most likely find me watching and or playing sports, relaxing outside or cooking.
It has been a long, fun and rewarding journey creating Flaura Gardens in the backyard of our Lakeview home in Mississauga – one that is close to 7 years in the making. Flashback to when it all began, with just a bare backyard, and a dream to not only grow beautiful flowers, but to create a relaxing and peaceful space for us and our family and friends to enjoy. So come on by and see what’s growing – we’d love to have you.
I've printed and laminated all of the annual flower seeds I have. I've started to lay them out to help with planning the gardens to get a really inspiring and cohesive colour pallette.
Hard to believe, but I've already started germinating seeds for this year's season. So far there area few varieties of Eucalyptus and lisianthus under the lights. Next up: iceland poppies, more lisianthus, snapdragons and stock.
I just dug out and processed the last of my dahlia tubers. The current batch are curing and will be put away for storage shortly. I put mine in plastic containers, in vermiculite and store in the unheated sunroom.
We are located in the beautiful neighbourhood of Lakeview in south Mississauga. If you'd like to come by to pick up some fresh flowers, please get in touch with us below.
