Today we planted a meadow garden with the students of NCCL and volunteers from Discover at Phillips park. The students had designed the layout of the garden and picked the native plants to help support local pollinators and wildlife. Over 1500 landscape plugs were planted and each student and volunteer were able to take a bee balm plant home to continue the support of our pollinators in their own garden. Thank you to the Newark Parks and Recreation and the City of Newark, DE!

We love pollinators at DCH for their ecological benefits. They sustain native plant populations and help in the production of our fruits and vegetables. Support your local pollinators by planting native flowers.

This boutique cut flower farm showcases beautiful cut flowers, unique plants and roots to grow your own. Mara Tyler moved from California to Pennsylvania in 2013 and bought a beautiful 1838 farmhouse on a 12-acre farmette, previously used as a dairy and sheep farm. The concept of a flower farm was born from the pastures and meadowed flatlands, which seemed the perfect spot to grow peonies, dahlias, roses, spring bulbs and companion perennials. You’ll enjoy a tour of the field of dahlias, learn about the farm and its growing methods, and have an opportunity to purchase cut flowers, and roots and bulbs for your own garden.
