Slow Flowers in the News

Primer Magazine

Primer Magazinean online lifestyle platform for dudes, discovered and recommended us for Valentine's Day floral giving. Author Jack Busch also featured a link to our Slow Flowers LOOK BOOK of American-grown Valentine's Day flowers.

Where to Find Locally-sourced Flowers for Valentine’s Day
Buying local, seasonal flowers is something I have to do twice a year; my rose-hating better half’s birthday and Valentine’s Day are both in winter months. Here’s what I’ve learned so far. .  . 
Looking for more resources for buying local, sustainable flowers, I stumbled upon It’s run by Debra Prinzing, who manages a community of 700+ flower farmers and floral designers who believe in domestic flower sourcing. The “Slow” in Slow Flowers is a nod to “Slow Food,” that close-to-home, low-carbon/transportation-footprint, seasonal and local mindset.

Mail Tribune Wedding Planner
Slow Flowers teamed up with Joan Ewer Thorndike of Le Mera Gardens, a longtime member based in Talent, Oregon, to author an article about locally-grown flowers for her regional newspaper's WEDDING GUIDE. 

Joan says: "After many years telling our local newspaper (The Mail Tribune) that I would not place an ad or support their Wedding Guide so long as they kept it as a canned product with little to no local content and all ads, they called my bluff and are going local on the whole thing!  . . . As part of the agreement on purchasing a half page ad I said I'd like it placed right next to a story on DIY."
As it turns out, the newspaper asked for Joan's help to author the article and she enlisted Slow Flowers! The piece hits Joan's target audience -- DIY couples. Let us know if we can assist you in doing something similar in your market! PR Support is a Premium member benefit.
