Why Local Flowers

You may be wondering why local flowers are any different than what you pick up at the grocery store. Currently, more than 80% of flowers purchased in the United States are grown overseas, most commonly in South America. These flowers are raised with heavy use of dangerous pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides, and under very poor labor conditions. They have been shipped from often thousands of miles away, producing high levels of carbon emission. Additionally, by the time you purchase them at the grocery store, they can be as much as a week old, meaning they often last just a couple of days in your home.


There is no reason to ship flowers in from another continent when we can grow gorgeous blooms right here at home. Growing & buying flowers locally opens up a whole world of beautiful, delicate blooms that do not ship well- blooming branches, delicate vines, winter hellebore, fragrant sweet peas…. Local flowers are clean, sustainable, beautiful, interesting, and long-lasting.


We are proud to be a part of a new movement in the US toward sustainably grown, locally sourced, and seasonal flowers!
