Behind Our Garden Gate
Growing things is our passion.
Whether that be charming fresh cut garden flowers, foliage & plants as Escalara Farms, or our life in faith, family, and business ventures as a husband and wife team.
As plant enthusiasts with big dreams upon graduating with degrees in Environmental Design & Horticulture (Gig ’em Ags!), we set out into professional endeavors including commercial landscaping and event floral design. So much was learned during the two decades that followed. Our family grew during that time as well, with the blessing of two lovely daughters. Today, we find ourselves at a crossroads contemplating what is next as our nest empties. We want to spend this next chapter of life using our talents to inspire a new generation of gardeners, plant geeks and nature lovers. Escalara Farms is our platform to keep us growing into the future.
My name is Christina and I am a plant addict! Truly, I can’t pass by a seed rack or a nursery and not want to purchase something. I absolutely love architectural shapes, textures, gorgeous colors and anything with fragrance. My belief is that your environment, whether inside or outside the home, should reflect personal style. This philosophy is our approach to what we grow in our garden at Escalara Farms. You’ll find classic varieties as well as the unexpected, edibles and herbs. We grow for enjoyment in bouquets and also love sharing our knowledge and hospitality through flower socials. Follow us on Instagram to see what we are up to in the garden and glimpses of what we are growing.
Ricky is the resident horticulturalist and Chief Bucket Washer at Escalara Farms. He spent the first 20 years of his career in the commercial landscape industry where his company grew to operate in both Texas & Oklahoma and was recognized as one of the Top 150 landscape companies in the country. Today he does as he is asked, which is extremely challenging, since he has become more rebellious with age. The one thing to remember about Ricky….HE GETS IT DONE IF IT MATTERS!
