Stop by the market this weekend to get some of the beautiful geraniums, dahlias, verbenas, petunias, heliotropes, alyssums, portulacas, impatiens, fuschias, cosmos, and many more vibrant flowers for your garden. 

Not sure about annuals or perennials? Read on "Know Your Flowers: Annuals & Perennials" post.

Moreover, we have a huge selection of natural soil, mulch, organic plant food, and other gardening needs. Stop by the market today and pick the blooms you like!

 

Know Your Flowers: Annuals & Perennials

Everyone agrees on the obvious: flowers ARE beautiful. However, not all flowers are made equal when it comes to their life-cycle and blooming habits.

You've probably heard of our weekly specials on annuals and perennials at the Reston Farm Market, but wonder what's the difference between the two categories? We are happy to "decode" the gardening language for you and look at the gardening strategies that will keep your garden full of blooms all season long. 

Annuals

Annuals are the plants that complete their life cycle in one year. These low-maintenance annual flowers will bloom all season, making them a great choice for containers and hanging baskets. Annual flowers are loved by many gardeners, as they prevent repetitive boredom and allow them to have a totally different garden every year. If you want to experiment with a new color scheme in your garden or try some new plants, annuals are the way to go!

At Reston Farm Market, we carry a variety of annual flowers and plants. From garden's darling petunia to sweet vanilla-like alyssum, cosmos flowers, vibrant portulaca, verbena, classic geranium, and much, much more!

Perennials

Perennials flowers are designed to live for three or more years. They are perfect for those gardeners who like consistency and/or have no time to experiment with the garden. However, standard perennials have a much shorter blooming cycle compared to annuals. Try mixing different kinds to establish a blooming pattern - hibiscus, hydrangeas, daisies, gaillardias, and other perennials. 

We, at Reston Farm Market, have a huge selection of both annuals and perennials to fit the needs of your unique garden. Committed to organic gardening, we also carry a variety of natural mulch, organic soil, organic plant food and natural fertilizers, and more exceptional quality gardening tools. Stop by today!

Well, we have some exciting news for you!

Effective this week, we are excited to offer Spring Specials at the Reston Farm Market. Look for our awesome daily specials announcements on our Facebook page @RestonFarm Monday through Thursday!

Reston Farm Market to Carry Raw Honey from Golden Angels Apiary, VA

We are excited to be able to offer our customers the very best raw honey sourced from the local farms in Virginia. Starting this weekend, we will carry delicious raw, unfiltered honey from Golden Angels Apiary located in Singers Glen, VA. Here're the types of honey that you will find at Reston Farm Market:       

  • Thistle Rose Wildflower Sourwood RAW Honey (16 oz)
  • Thistle Wildflower RAW Honey (44 oz)
  • Thistle Clover Orange Wildflower Minimal Process Honey (16 oz)
  • Thistle Wildflower Minimal Process Honey (32 oz)   

What's so special about the honey from Golden Angels Apiary?

Golden Angels Apiary, VA specializes in raw honey and is one of the most well-regarded apiaries in Virginia. They do not filter their honey. What makes their products so special is their utmost respect for the bees and the environment.

Environmentally conscious and ethical work processes: 

  • Golden Angels Apiary do not use chemicals to remove the bees from the honeycombs at the time of the harvest. Instead, the bees are carefully handled using the natural methods that do not harm the bees nor the purity of the honey;
  • Wax moth damage is controlled utilizing a large freezer unit, rather than chemical means; 
  • Parasitic mite control is handled by vinegar vaporization, smaller foundation cell sizing, and essential oil treatments.

The health benefits of raw honey

Raw honey is both delicious and healthy. It contains nutrients and enzymes that have a variety of health benefits and has been used in natural medicine for ages. Some of the benefits of raw honey include:

  • Cold remedy - raw honey helps to soothe a sore throat and works as a cough suppressant; try adding it to hot tea with lemon if you have a cold;
  • Natural antiseptic - raw honey has antibacterial and antifungal properties; it can kill unwanted bacteria and fungus;
  • Great source of antioxidants - raw honey contains antioxidants that help to protect your body from cell damage.

Did we mention it's delicious, too? Try some organic peanut butter mixed with raw honey on a pair of healthy crackers, and you will know what we mean.

Stop by the Reston Farm Market this weekend and get some delicious Golden Angels raw honey to sweeten your day!
