Here at Hedge Post Farm, we grow and harvest a variety of products for the retail and wholesale florist, designers and others who want unique floral products for themselves. We specialize in woody cut florals, dried flowers, flora of the tallgrass prairie and naturals harvested from the land.
Golden Curls Curly Willow
Our curly willow is full-bodied and often reaches heights of 8 feet. We harvest the bulk of our stems in the dormant season when stem color is at its best. Sizes range anywhere from tips to large branches perfect for trellises, archways and large decor. Curly willow makes great wreaths! We offer dried willow products year-round. Not a fan of dried? Check with us about our next harvest of fresh branches. We're growing a new crop of red curly willow! Check with us anytime for availability.
Our largest stems of pussy willow produce as many as 40 catkins per branch. Sizes range from shorties that are easy additions to smaller arrangements to 4-foot specimen pieces. Single stem and branched! We're growing a new crop of fantail pussy willow! Check with us anytime for availability.
We have pruners and we're not afraid to use them! We keep an eye out for unique branches and naturals suitable for arrangements and decorations.
Cattails and Lotus Pods
When Mother Nature allows, we harvest cattails and lotus pods from our ponds. We have dozens of dried cattails available now, 4 to 6- feet long. We spray them multiple times to avoid unexpected explosions. Dried lotus pods are sold with and without stems.
Native Grasses and Naturals
The flora of the Flint Hills is unlike any other, especially the native grasses of the Tallgrass Prairie. Switchgrass, Big Bluestem, and Indiangrass all are great fresh cut or dried. Let us help you put the prairie in your designs! We've got assorted tree branches, acorn caps, pine cones and other naturals. An experienced eye for design is always present when evaluating what can make a desirable product.
If you're looking for dried gourds, we've got you covered! Gourds of all shapes and sizes, perfect for fine art, birdhouses and crafty projects. We currently have an inventory of more than 200 items.
We harvest Sea Lavendar, Limonium latifolium, every summer. HUGE dried bunches are available now!
Our farm is named for the 1930's shelterbelts of Osage-orange (Hedge) trees that edge our property and its use in our fences. Check out the peg puzzles and rock-solid hedge walking sticks made from our trees.
Most of our cut items can be sold fresh immediately after harvest for local customers. We can ship most products, with pickup at the farm an option for large branches. Our products may also be found or requested at The Flower Mill, Wamego, and 1419 Mercantile and Furnish/AsterHouse Design in Manhattan.
