If you read Seasonal Wisdom frequently, you may have seen this story a while back about the popularity of Slow Flowers with Debra Prinzing. As she explained, 80 percent of flowers sold in the United States are exported.  So, when you buy American Grown Flowers, you’re directly supporting local flower farmers in this country.

Just as many people now want to eat locally grown foods, they also want to enjoy the beauty of locally grown flowers too.

Recently, I was invited to attend an American Grown Flowers “Field to Vase” Dinner at P. Allen Smith’s Garden2Blog event. From the gorgeous local flowers to the delicious artisanal wine from Stargazer Barn, it was an unforgettable evening that warmed the hearts of everyone who attended.
