For the fourth year in a row, the U.S. Senate has designated July American Grown Flowers Month, recognizing the economic and cultural impact of America’s cut flower and greens farmers. It’s an amazing form of recognition right at the height of flower season!
There are so many ways you can participate in the celebration, connect with flowers and help spread the word that origin matters!
First, you can look for our iconic logo in the amazing American Grown Flowers displays from retailers participating in the annual American Grown Flowers Month. You’ll find special displays and supporting collateral in many Safeway, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions, Spartan Nash, Charlie’s Produce, Mother’s Markets, Ralphs, Alfalfa’s Local Markets, United Supermarkets and more.
Grab some American Grown Flowers and Greens when you see them and encourage your family and friends to do the same. With so many stores participating, it’s easy!
Florists, you can also look to DVFlora for its celebration of American Grown Flowers Month that includes downloadable marketing materials and a full month of specials on flowers and greens from Certified American Grown farms throughout July. Farms featured in July include: Ferntrust, Eufloria, Joseph & Sons, Mellano & Co., Holland America Flowers and Camflor.
And florists who are committed to spreading the #originmatters message and designing with homegrown flowers can use DVFlora’s dedicated online directory or our Where to Buy American Grown to quickly and conveniently purchase Certified American Grown Flowers and Greens.
