Kalin’s Favorites

I’m pretty much self taught in all areas of what we do here in the studio & on the farm. When I started getting multiple emails weekly asking for what products we use and love here- I knew I wanted to create this section of the website for you. Enjoy! PS- this is the easiest spot to shop for the flower lover / gardener / lavender grower in your life ; )

 

Farm

 

Loppers

One of our most used tools at the farm loppers are perfect for pruning fruit trees & harvesting lilacs. 

Garden Shears

I have dozens of this pair because they are affordable and they last a while. Perfect for wreath work in the winter but also having in the garden to harvest flowers with all summer. 

LAvender harvesting

Harvesting lavender bunches with a sickle is faster & more ergonomic.

 

 

Sluggo Plus

Slugs love the garden & for as slow as they are can do MAJOR damage. I adore Sluggo because its pet safe and enviromentally friendly but does the job. 

Proven Winners

Container Fertilizer

I fertilize our potted annuals we have around the farm and this is my favorite stuff. 

Hedge Trimmer

We use the Ryobi system for our electric hedge trimming - this is how we shape lavender plants. 

 

 

Studio

Snips

I've tried a lot of snips. These are my go to. Lightweight, sharp & last forever. Enjoy

Detail Work Snips

Sometimes having a needle nose snip can help with boutonniere / corsage work.


Aprons

You can never ever have too many aprons in the studio.


 

 

Foam

For arrangements that need a better anchor, we use foam. Foam is especially helpful in creating movement and on major scale buildouts.


Chicken Wire

Without question our most used “tool” in the studio to help us achieve movement and shape - be sure to grab plastic coated to help protect your flowers even better. :)


Turntable

Our favorite tool for making sure we “turn our work” place your vessel on a turn table while designing “in the round”


 

 

Books

Starting a cutting garden or dreaming of one? Erin's book will provide easy tips and beautiful images to get you going.

Someone gifted me this book early on in my journey and its been a fun one to be inspired by.

One of my favorite designers shares her unbelievable talent utilizing color theory.

 

 

The ultimate color guide you'll be amazed at the color you can find in florals and this book is especially helpful for people learning to pair together certain varieties.
