You’re invited to join the Social Media experience and share images of #redwhiteblueflowers for #americanflowersweek (June 28-July 4). Of course, we hope everyone features local and seasonal flowers — from your own garden, or sourced from a flower farm in your area.
Kelly created the “American Grown at Home” weekly floral delivery subscription program to help flower lovers and florists familiarize themselves with botanicals from U.S. flower farms.
Every two weeks she features a curated collection of stems from one of the farms she supports (and most all are Slow Flowers members, as well).
This direct-from-the-farm-door-to-your-door box program is a way for me to help create more awareness of what is grown seasonally and regionally, help the farms move their abundance of product, instill a sense of national pride in where our flowers come from and provide you a sense of hope & inspiration in the home with beautiful botanicals
Your box will ship Tuesday June 30th to arrive Wed July 1st.
The cost is $150 (shipping included) and features 100 stems, including: red peonies, crocosmia and dahlias; white foxglove, cottage yarrow and alstroemeria; blue nigella, tweedia and scabiosa; blue eucalyptus and mint.
He’s your opportunity to experience a variety of Red-White-and-Blue domestic blooms and explore creative ways to celebrate local and American grown flowers – whether you’re making a bouquet, installation, centerpiece or wearable. PREORDER YOUR BOX HERE.
