A flower farm story
I very often find that people are genuinely interested in how flowers are grown for the commercial market. Although we are all familiar with the rose bushes in our own back yard and the care and attention they require, the commercial growing of flowers takes place on a scale that few consumers can imagine. Amongst the questions I hears are ones such as
- Where do the flowers come from?
- Are the flowers grown in fields or cut native bushes?
- How are the employees of the farmer farms treated and cared for?
- Do the farms operate in an environmentally friendly fashion?
- How do the flowers reach the consumer?
Like many other aspects of life, flower quality is not something that simply happens, the best flowers are grown at the best managed flower farms. At Grower Direct it has always been our goal to bring consumers the very best in flowers and to achieve this we have partnered with the very best farms operating in the ideal climate conditions of Colombia and Ecuador. One of our finest flower growers that we have enjoyed a 20 year relationship with is Golden Flowers.

Here is a short video from Golden Flowers that takes the viewer on a journey from farm to consumer, and provides a fairly in depth look into how those beautiful flowers reach the North American marketplace
