IT ALL STARTED WHEN…

These two Bloomin' Idiots, Sherry and Martha, began as avid gardeners years ago and now on their 10 acre property. The girls then decided to take the next step into flower farming thinking; "How hard could it be? We know all about gardening."

 

They could not have been more wrong! Flower farming is a completely different challenge - there’s very little difference between flower farming and agricultural produce farming. The girls soon learned they had A LOT to learn.

Why the name Bloomin’ Idiots? Because the ladies felt like Bloomin’ Idiots to start a second career at their age that requires hard labor in the HOT summer sun of Alabama but… they LOVE flowers! And, they LOVE making others smile with their arrangements!  Not to mention, they LOVE getting dirty - Really dirty!

Some years later, the farm is rocking with spring flowers, summer abundance, fall color and winter blooming Amaryllis and Paperwhites table top gardens ready to bring great cheer during the Christmas holiday.

The two ladies at Bloomin' Idiots Flowers believe that nothing can brighten someone’s day like a fresh, beautiful, locally grown bouquet. No matter the occasion, they know flowers lift the spirit, bring joy, and are wonderful food for the soul!

The farm is not typically open to visitors, but Bloomin' Idiots happily deliver gorgeous bouquets and buckets of flowers to happy, happy customers in Tuscaloosa County.

Flower clients in the Tuscaloosa, Northport area may choose from a large selection of "fresh from the farm", seasonal flowers and arrangements designed to their specific requests. There are also several workshops and classes the girls will bring to your home or office (or ours) during the year. See our workshops tab to learn more.

WHY BUY LOCAL

Almost 80 percent of the fresh flowers sold in the United States and Canada are not grown in North America. They are grown in Ecuador, Brazil, or Columbia and shipped to the US where they are sold to brokers and wholesellers. The flowers from other countries might have been cut from the fields 8 days or more before you even see them. No wonder flower arrangements never last very long!

BETTER SMELL

Many commodity-type flowers like Roses for example, have been bred over the years by the big production growers in the US and other countries for uniformity – they want them to fit into a box and often those “over-bred” flowers lose their natural fragrance during the breeding process. Bloomin’ Idiots Flowers produces flowers – mostly from seeds started in our greenhouse, in a wide range of colors, forms, and scents. Bottom Line: Our flowers smell like God created them

to smell!
