About us

Flora Borealis is a small-scale flower farm located in Ancaster, Ontario.  We grow stunning specialty flowers and lush foliages and bring you the freshest and most beautiful bouquets.  You won't find any imported blooms here, all our bouquets are field-grown right here in Ancaster -- they are truly local gems! 

Owner and operator Andrea is the one-woman force behind Flora Borealis.  Andrea is a long time resident of Ancaster and discovered her love of flowers while spending countless hours in the garden with her mom.  The perfumed smells of peonies were her first flower-love and many an hour was spent trying to figure out how to save the smell for later by "making" perfumes.  Unfortunately her 9-year old self never figured out how to make lasting perfume, and instead learned that some things in life are here for but an instant.  The ephemeral beauty of flowers continues to pull on her heart-strings to this day.

 

Our Flowers

Flora Borealis uses only ecological and sustainable methods to grow our flowers and foliages.  We do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides, so you can feel good about your purchase.  Guilt-free flowers!!  We also place a high importance on limiting waste.  For this reason, you will never find any foams or plastics in our arrangements.  Each bouquet is hand-tied and placed in a recyclable brown paper sleeve.

All our flowers and foliages are lovingly grown from seed, bulb or tuber and harvested by hand.  Our small-scale approach allows us to tend carefully to all our flowers by hand and harvest them at the peak of perfection.  Watching all the wild and wonderful shapes, sizes and colours of seeds give way to life each season is a privilege to behold and we look forward to sharing the bounty of the season with our customers.

Please join us on this beautiful adventure of colour, texture and fragrance. 

With appreciation,

Andrea
