Gardening has been in Foxie’s bones since she was a child gardening along side of her mother on their family farm, Pharsalia, in Nelson County. Built in 1814 Pharsalia is now owned by Foxie and Dick Morgan and is an event home as well as a flower farm. Perennials, annuals and woodies are grown for cutting and sold at Nelson County Farmers Market, to floral designers, DIY brides, and others in need of fresh cut locally grown flowers.
Peonies have become her passion and she has nearly 1000 peony plants. Teaching, learning and sharing information on cut flowers has brought so much enjoyment to her life.
Foxie and fellow speaker Beverly Lacey live 20 minutes from each other in the Blue Ridge Mountains and help one another with advice and selection of plants as well as sometimes sharing customers!
Tuesday 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm John Marshall. Open to the public and free of charge.
The Flower Farm Girls are bringing loads of varieties of bare root peonies to sell at the GCV symposium. They will be selling at the John Marshall on Tuesday and at the Bolling-Haxall House on Wednesday. Remember, fall is the perfect time for planting peonies!
