Is spring finally here?
After such a long and cold winter, I have really been looking forward to spring, sunshine, warmth. The first day of spring, March 21, left a lot to be desired. Mother Nature dumped 12 inches of snow on us. Only a few days ago there was a threat of frost. Today, May 4th, I think I can finally say that spring is finally here.
The greenhouse furnace will be in need of an overhaul after the spring workout, but it certainly did it’s job. There are over 55 different varieties of plants in our greenhouses at this time. We have begun to transplant sunflowers, celosia, dahlias and many other items into our high tunnels. Our workload is never ending at this time of the season.transplanted sunsgreen

Our tunneled Italian Ranunculus, had to deal with tempertures from zero to those 80 degree days that we had in February. All that time with John’s watchful eyes willing them to make it through another Pennsylvania winter. He did just that. This years ranuculus crop is absolutely stunning!


The first of our peonies are beginning to bloom. By Mother’s Day, Red Charm and Coral Charm peonies will be gracing dinner tables up and down the east coast. The blooms on these are big and beautiful! With many more varieties following shortly behind.



Spring means something different to everyone. To me, it means the beginnng of another season of exceptional, local flowers.


Philadelphia Flower Show

It’s an exciting season at Cramers’ Farm – starting with our revamped website design! This new forum allows me the opportunity to reach out and share news from time to time. I will also keep you up to date on local events where we will have our dried flower bunches, willows, wreaths, swags, bouquets and other wares available.

Speaking of events, attending the Philadelphia Flower Show is something that each of you should put on your spring bucket list! Each February, for the past 19 years, we start gearing up for the event, which has grown into the country’s largest indoor flower show. While we are there from 10am to 9pm for the show’s entire ten day run, we never tire of meeting so many interesting people and making new customers.

The Philadelphia Flower Show has something for every member of your family, including beautiful displays, food and drink tastings, special bridal events, and the list keeps on going. Of course, with more than 180 vendors, the shopping is my favorite part! Artists from across the country fill the Marketplace with handmade treasures and one-of-a-kind finds. My trip to the show isn’t complete without a stop at Copa Soaps. My friend, Toni, makes the best soap I have ever used! Give them a try and you will be a life-long devotee to her luscious bath bars.

Have a foodie in your group? The Reading Terminal Market is directly across the street from the convention center. This epicurean paradise is not to be missed. They have anything and everything that you could ever want to eat. A few of my favorites are Hershel’s East Side Deli, home of the best reuben on earth, DiNic’s roasted pork, and Meltkraft for artisan grilled cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about a visit!

After a cold, windy, wet winter, we are all longing for spring. I guarantee this show will cure your winter blahs. Mark your calendar now for March 10 – March 19th. We can’t wait to see you there!
