Hidden Springs Flower Farm is Family Owned
Owners, Brigitte and Harvey Buchite have been involved in raising plants nearly all of their lives. Harvey graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in horticulture and spent 17 years working for the U of MN and MN Extension Service, followed by 10 years as a partner at Rice Creek Gardens, a specialty plant nursery in Blaine Minnesota. Brigitte, a native of Austria, graduated from the University of Bodenkultur in Vienna, Austria with a Masters Degree in Agriculture. Harvey and Brigitte introduced the gardening world to Wisteria Blue Moon, their own selected seedling that has proved to be hardy to -40 degrees and blooms three times a year in long clusters of fragrant flowers.
Harvey is a popular garden speaker, with several presentations on Peonies and Heirloom Apples. His presentations have taken him to garden and specialty commercial grower groups in Canada, Europe, and from Portland Maine to Portland Oregon and throughout the Midwest. As past president of the American Peony Society and past President of the Minnesota Peony Society he is deeply committed to helping others learn about one of his favorite plants. Many of his peony articles can be found on the Web, in various publications including the American Peony Society Bulletin.
Extensive travel to visit nurseries and gardens has allowed Brigitte and Harvey to scout out a wide variety of select and unusual plants. We enjoy sharing our passion for rare and interesting plants by making them available to our customers. Our active peony, daylily,and perennial hybridizing programs allow us to bring the best and hardiest plants to our customers, well suited for our demanding climate extremes.

We look forward to helping you reach your garden dreams,
Brigitte and Harvey
