How often do I pick up my share?
You pick up your Flower Share weekly.
Where and when do I pick up my Flower Share?
Grab your Flower Share at the Farmstand at Bell Urban Farm in Conway, Arkansas, located at 2011 Tyler Street. We have ADA-accessible parking, and are happy to deliver to your car.
Pick up your Flower Share on Friday 1:00 - 6:00 pm, Saturday 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, or Sunday 1:00 - 5:00 pm. Each week we send out an email and text reminder to subscribers. Just like with produce, the sooner you pick up the flowers, the fresher they will be! We will keep them in our cooler until you pick it up to preserve freshness.
What kinds of flowers will be in my Flower Share?
Some of the flowers you can expect to see in your flower share this summer include sunflowers, zinnias, marigolds, gomphrena, basil, lisianthus, ageratum, celosia, rudbeckia, dahlias, statice, and strawflower.
Can I request a specific flower in my bouquet or designer bundle?
The types of flowers included will vary each week. We are unable to take requests on types of flowers or colors. Each week will be a beautiful surprise!
Where do the flowers come from?
All of the flowers you see in your Flower Share are grown locally within the state of Arkansas. Many flowers are grown on our farm, Bell Urban Farm, but we also partner with other flower farms to source flowers! Blue Mountain Vegetable Farm, Whispering Willow Farm and Mindful Farmer are other farms that supply our flowers.
How long will the flowers last?
Each type of flower has a different vase life, or how long you can expect it to last in the vase. You can improve the vase life of your bouquet by freshening the water and trimming the stems. You can typically expect the flower bouquet to last a week or more if cared for properly!
Why buy a Flower Share?
Flower shares are a great way to support your local flower farmers and ensure that you have a fresh flower bouquet in your home each week! Studies have shown that a bouquet of fresh flowers in your home elevates your mood and relieves stress. Flowers make you happy!
Try splitting a flower share with friends and take turns picking it up each week!
Can I gift a Flower Share?
Of course! We love it when customers want to gift flowers. What a wonderful surprise that would be to receive a whole summer's worth of fresh flowers.
Do you deliver Flower Shares?
We do not deliver at this time. Please pick up your share from the Farmstand at Bell Urban Farm.
What if I am out of town one week and can't pick up?
You can have a family or a friend pick up your share if you are out of town, or you can let us know to donate it. You can email us at email@example.com or call the Farmstand at 501-504-6996.
