Fire Flower Garden
Fire Flower Garden is a small farm/large garden that grew out of a love of flowers and gardening.. Some years ago Barbara found herself with more perennial divisions, seedlings, and dried flowers than she could use, and began hauling them off the nearby Belfast Farmers Market. This expanded into a seasonal plant and flower business which begins with pots of violas and newly dug field grown perennials. In mid season there is a "garden party" and by August, dried flowers are becoming available. The season winds down with a booth in the Farmers Market at Maine's well known Common Ground Fair in September, finishing up with a few weeks of dried flowers, pumpkins and gourds at the Belfast Farmers Market. To find out more about these see the Events listing.
A summer stroll through the gardens will reveal Barbara's eye for texture and color, along with an amazing array of hardy plant varieties suited to the often harsh mid-Maine climate. Her gardens are in USDA Zone 4, although she has been able to grow lavender successfully for many years. Whimsical pottery creatures created by Charlie Krause, Barbara's husband, may be lurking almost anywhere. Fire Flower Garden is Certified Organic by MOFGA.

The Farm Stand
The gardens and plant stand are open for perennial plants, cut flowers and herb plants during the season, from May through mid-September. We use the time honored self service system, unless we happen to be out in the garden when you arrive. It is advised that you call ahead if you need to "talk gardening" or are looking for cut flowers, or want to purchase pottery. See Contact for directions, phone number and other information.
We are at the Belfast Farmers Market on Fridays May through October, 9am to 1pm with a few exceptions when going to craft fairs.
