They are fresher than most you find in a store, and they aren’t doused in preservatives. The majority of flowers sold in the United States (about 80%) are imported from other countries. That means that by the time you put them in the vase at your house, they could already be a week old!
They can be more unique than those you find everyday. Many flowers I grow are varieties that are difficult to ship; meaning that if you can’t get them local, they can be nearly impossible to find. I want my flowers to spark creativity and inspire your moment with them, and I go out of my way to find flowers that are a bit off the beaten path.
They smell better! Many flowers have had their fragrance bred out of them in the search of uniformity for shipping. The sense of smell is powerful and can cause memories to come to life. How disappointing to receive a bouquet with no scent!
