Artisan made wreaths, made on a farm that grows all their materials. Beautiful seasonal wreaths for home and gifts, plus fresh garlands and centerpieces and wreaths with lavender. “Our herbs and flowers are grown naturally without harmful pesticides. We grow and use lavender, olive branches, rosemary, sage, marjoram, oregano, thyme, cilantro, dill and various flowering herbs, such as yarrow, monarda and feverfew in our designs.”
A lovely online directory to help you find florists, studio designers, wedding and event planners, supermarket flower departments and flower farmers who are committed to using American grown flowers. Like “slow food,” slow flowers are locally grown and often organic (though not always). These florists guarantee the origin of the flowers they use.

National home delivery of organic, biodynamic, wildcrafted, fair trade, and “green label” flowers (deemed by Organic Bouquet to be socially and environmentally responsible), including roses, lavender, lilies, gerberas, alstroemeria, amaryllis, seasonal bouquets and more. I have received these flowers and they are fresh, beautiful, long-lasting and of excellent quality. They also have 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. Our ultimate goal is to help protect the environment and improve farm worker safety by eliminating millions of pounds of toxic pesticides from agricultural usage.” They are also working to establish international standards for responsible growing of commercial flowers. In addition, they sell fresh organic gift-packed fruits, gourmet organic gift baskets, seasonal eco-gifts, and handcrafted artisan vases from around the world.
