WHY BUY LOCALLY-GROWN FLOWERS?
- Only 25% of flowers sold in the U.S. are grown on American soil. By purchasing locally-grown flowers, you are directly supporting American family farms and the Lowcountry economy by keeping dollars and jobs here in the U.S.
- Imported flowers are cut days before they arrive in your hands. Local flowers are fresher, meaning they'll last longer once they reach your vase.
- Farming outside the U.S. is often unregulated, meaning your flowers can be grown using loads of chemicals. Local, small farms tend to grow flowers sustainably, using only organic methods. Buying local flowers also preserves farmland and ensures fewer resources are used in transporting flowers to their destination.
Buying local, sustainable flowers means you support ethically-grown products produced right here in South Carolina. Our families are proud to grow flowers for you and your family, and we look forward to meeting you soon at a local farmers market, event, or florist.
