Organic Flower Power

Organic flowers are grown sustainably. They are raised without harmful pesticides and toxic fertilizers. Conventionally raised flowers are heavily sprayed with pesticides and toxic fertilizers contributing to water and soil pollution. Not to mention harmful to the workers that harvest them and potentially harmful to those who receive them. Choose organic when possible for the sustainable choice.

"Organic flowers address the core purpose of organic production: to enrich the earth,"
"The market introduction of organic flowers is important because it is safer for farm workers and is good for the environment. Organic floral production encourages healthy stewardship of the earth."

To grow an organic flower garden, avoid using any pesticides, fungicides, weed killers or insecticides, and concentrate on improving the quality of the soil using organic matter. Grow flowers organically with advice from an experienced horticulturist.
