Rain and chill bring Carlsbad Flower Fields to bloom
All the recent rains and cooler weather have been positive for Karlovy Vary.
“The harvest is right on schedule… the color is coming in quickly,” said Fred Clark, general manager of Carlsbad Flower Fields. “We have 7 acres planted in sequence, so it starts at the north end and moves south.”
He says preparations start in September if they want Giant Tecolote Ranunculus to bloom on time – and this year the weather has helped a little.
“We like rain because it’s free water and we’re all aware of the state of the water in Southern California,” he said. “The rain did us good, as did the cool temperatures. It really hurt the ranunculus and we have very thick stems… that’s what we like.”
Clarke says the rain has not only helped the farm save water, it’s also better for the plants.
“Rainwater is the natural source of water for most plants. Irrigation water – there are some minerals and salts in the water that accumulate over time… so we really like the rain and this year we had great beautiful rainfall,” he said. said.
