The American-grown field to vase virtual experience live from The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, California will take place on April 24, 2021 – all from the comfort of your home. During this evening, you’ll meet flower farmer Mike A. Mellano of Mellano & Company and learn about his family’s flower farming history, while enjoying a special farm tour that will take you through the 50-acre ranunculus rainbow.
As Mike explains the growing process and digs deeper into the science of flower farming, he’ll touch on how Mellano and Company’s crops are grown using responsible conditions.
The other part of the experience will be a virtual visit to The Flower Fields, which will be alive with blooms at that time. And it is home to the Tecolote giant ranunculus, also known as the Persian buttercup or Ranunculus asiaticus. Colorful and beautiful, the ranunculus flower is native to Asia Minor and is a member of the buttercup family.
Mike will also highlight the unique relationship the Mellano family has with the Ecke family, owners of The Flower Fields, and how their partnership has worked to produce this farm for the public to experience and enjoy. The Flower Fields continues to be a national jewel, an attraction that will be enjoyed for future generations – and you can experience it all by yourself.
But you’ve got to save your seat to join this event And, if you’d like to include delivery of some of Mellano & Company’s renowned ranunculus in your experience, you’ve got to register by April 16.
