Organic Flowers

Growing flowers for commericial sales uses a huge amount of pesticides, which can harm farm workers and damage the environment. So it's about time we have organic flowers! If you don't grow your own, look for organically-grown flowers at your natural food store, or purchase them from these links.

Also a selection of bouquets that benefit environmental organizations. Organic Bouquet is the leader in establishing the market for organic flowers "by encouraging major growers to initiate organic production while creating massive trade and consumer awareness for the need of organic flowers.

"Many of the varieties will be new to you because we don't believe in limiting your floral joy to just roses and carnations. Each morning we rise early to pick your flowers, ensuring that they are fresh, vibrant, fragrant and grown and harvested with the greatest care...We have always grown our flowers organically believing that they are more alive, vibrant and longer lasting. ...You are buying from expert flower growers and professional floral designers. But, most importantly, you are buying flowers from flower lovers."
