Have you ever wondered where those grocery store or florist flowers come from? If you want the big picture read "Flower Confidential" by Amy Stewart. Here are the highlights:
exploited employees in foreign countries in substandard working conditions
shipped over long distances with a big carbon footprint
sprayed with pesticides (many that are illegal for use in the US) throughout their growth and packing process
You might pay a lot or a little for the flowers but you aren't even touching the environmental and social cost for their production. Thank goodness there are other options! I grow most of my flowers from seed. I grow with love and care and use regenerative soil building and permaculture informed practices to build a healthy ecosystem. You can feel it with these flowers. They are full of life! Come see for yourself!
