Nestled in the heart of old tobacco country in Asheville, North Carolina, Flourish Flower Farm sits atop a huge hill and is surrounded by incredible, nearly 360º views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A private home with huge covered porches and a goldfish pond overlooks the flower fields. The flowers at Flourish Flower Farm bloom from March through October, with July-September being the peak months.

Niki Irving's boutique flower farm grows specially cut, mountain-fresh flowers using sustainable, natural practices. Now, Niki brings her organic gardening techniques to your home, helping you grow, harvest, and arrange your own lush, seasonally inspired flowers.

Farming and gardening are not “one size fits all” and in the book Niki addresses all the factors that are universal, but also provides a road map to help customize your garden to suit your unique conditions. Plus, the book is filled with gorgeous and helpful photos!

Niki has studied with many talented floral designers, including Tulipina, Floret, Love 'n Fresh Flowers, Ponderosa + Thyme and Bows + Arrows, and she has combined all these experiences over many years into Flourish’s own signature style.
