Fresh, Beautiful, Locally Grown Flowers for Your Valentine

— Written By Anemones

Locally grown flowers are:

  • fresher and so last longer.
  • prettier because they are harvested near full bloom.
  • sustainable with a low carbon footprint since they were not shipped from the other side of the globe
  • a way to invest in local farmers.
