Spring is coming!

Mariella‘s passion is flowers and her planter boxes, hanging baskets, and annual flower pots including succulents, herbs, and vegetables are the best in the Vail Valley! She grows them from seeds in her greenhouse at her farm. Many of you have seen her incredible creations over the years.

Time is of the essence because she has already started planting and will continue only through the middle of March.

As you have heard in the news more and more flower growers are going out of business or changing products to marijuana. It’s becoming harder and harder to find really good annual flowers. The demand has stayed the same or increased but the supply has diminished incredibly over the last three years. Don’t delay and order today! Email mariella@black-diamondpm.com and ask for our most recent rate sheet. She will put together a custom quote for you based upon full-sun, part-sun, part-shade, and the way the sun moves over the location of your arrangements. Remember her flowers grow from up here in the high country so they are heartier than store-bought front-range flowers! Irrigation maintenance and fertilization are separate.
