Homegrown Blooms appears in the June 2018 issue of Super Floral Magazine.

I’m so excited to share the stories of grocery stores around the country who are participating in and promoting American Flowers Week, bringing their customers a new reason to purchase bouquets and bunches of local blooms!

The June issue of Super Floral, a sister publication to Florists’ Review, features my story about just that.

“Homegrown Blooms, Coast to Coast” highlights some of the ways that groceries and supermarkets of all sizes are bringing the message of local, seasonal and sustainable flowers to their shoppers.

We have the most creative staff and for us, it was the joy of creating something to display during American Flowers Week and share with our customers — Denise Johnson, T&C Bainbridge Island
