Lily Stone Gardens is a year round floral design shop and seasonal cut flower farm located about 35 minutes south of Winnipeg just outside of Rosenort, MB. We have been growing flowers at Lily Stone for 7 years now. We started our business by growing flowers for farmers markets in Winnipeg but have now shifted the business in a slightly different direction and currently supply flowers for my own flower shop, weddings, and multiple other florists in Manitoba with locally grown flowers during our seasonal months. We grow flowers on approximately 1.5 cultivated garden acres and grow over 20 - 30 varieties of cut flowers. A large part of our business is designing for weddings. We currently design weddings for around 50 - 60 couples per year as well as offer bulk flowers for DIY weddings. It has become a strong passion of mine to also supply high quality, strongly demanded cut flower varieties to Manitoba Florists. This year we plan to expand our business by offering a CSA subscription and multiple workshops on growing cut flowers on a small scale as well design workshops.
