WHAT HAPPENED TO TRADITIONAL FLORAL BOUQUETS?

On March 20, The New York Times published an article, “What Happened to Traditional Floral Bouquets,” in which author Deborah Needleman wrote:

• “Most of our cut flowers are imported from Latin America, where labor is cheap, working conditions harsh, regulations lax and chemicals prevalent … .”

• “Imported flowers are jacked up on fungicide, dunked in vats of preservatives and jostled and manhandled for about a week,” before arriving in retail flower shops.

Peter Moran, CEO of the Society of American Florists (SAF), responded to what SAF called “inaccuracies” in the article. Read his response here.
