Joe and Hazel Cook with their daughter Amy have operated a family owned business, Blossom Hill Nursery since 1994, specializing in the hybridization and propagation of British Delphinium elatum. A second passion has resulted in an extensive peony collection of over 600 varieties including species, tree, herbaceous and intersectional peonies. The Cooks are propagating the peonies, including grafting 100 varieties of tree peonies. They continue to win many prestigious awards.
In 2014 they received Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence award for BEST Micro Business! Congratulations to the Cooks from The Lakefield Horticultural Society.
