Sly Hill Flowers

Welcome. I’m Karoline Sly, and I’m a flower farmer.

My family – husband, two boys and a few dogs – has lived on a beautifully wooded 5 acres in the South Sound of the Pacific Northwest for the past 24 years...and yes we live on a hill.

Growing up I spent a lot of time in the garden with my grandfather and I guess the gardening bug just stuck. As an adult I’ve always grown flowers along with a huge and quite serious vegetable garden – so serious that I had to take up canning to use up all the vegetables! I’ve been an organic grower forever because we always had dogs, kids, a well, and really it was just the right thing to do.

The football field (remember I said boys) that we had in the back yard has now been transformed into dahlia beds. The greenhouse is getting an upgrade - we've laid the foundation, built the walls, and are tirelessly working to complete the finishing touches so that we're ready for spring seeds.

The inspiration for Sly Hill Flowers started a few years ago when I decided that I could grow flowers for my oldest son’s wedding. That year I grew 50 dahlia plants. From that very first season, as the saying goes, I was hooked. The very next year for my youngest son’s wedding I planted over 800 plants. Go big or go home - right?

I've spent hundreds of hours memorizing varieties, finding vendors, researching planting methods and learning everything I can about this crazy idea of becoming a flower farmer. I have been so inspired by all the support, encouragement, and valuable information shared by flower farmers in the industry that it's made me believe I can do it too. So here we go and I’m sooo excited!
