Melanie of Dahlia May Flower Farm
A native of the Quinte area and a lover of nature, Melanie brings to her work a background in art and horticulture as well as a passion for growing beautiful flowers. Since 2014, Melanie has been farming Dahlia May Flower Farm, the very land her parents cultivated. She completed studies in horticulture and floral design at Loyalist College, and has taken a course in flower farming and design at Floret Flower Farm, one of North America's leading operations of this kind. Melanie specializes in growing romantic and fragrant, often heirloom, varieties of flowers. Nestled in the beautiful rolling Murray Hills of southeastern Ontario, Dahlia May supplies fresh seasonal cut flowers at her farm stand located on the farm and distinctive bouquets to farmers' markets in the Quinte area. She also offers both rustic and elegant floral design services, inspired by nature and changing with the seasons.
