How Green Are Your Mother's Day Flowers?

San Francisco (April 24, 2006) -, America's first online organic florist, offers Mother's Day bouquets grown free of harsh pesticides and chemicals helping to protect all the women in your life including Mother Nature herself.

"The organic story is now broadening far beyond the health benefits of pesticide-free foods," said Gerald Prolman, CEO of "Organic farming, whether asparagus, strawberries, cotton or our own beautiful flowers, helps protect Mother Nature - it's that simple."

Grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, organic flowers thrive in living ecosystems: beneficial insects including wasps eat the aphids, while natural fertilizers transform the warm, humid soil of the greenhouses into a hotbed of radiant colors and floral hues.

Consumers can sweeten the gift with organic and fair trade chocolates accompanied by a recycled, hand-blown, green glass vase.

Featured Mother's Day bouquets include:

  • Fragrant Garden Bouquet - 20-stem arrangement includes Fragrant Lilies, Pink Spray Roses, White Asters, Pink Hypericum, Gypsophillia and Godetia.
  • Purple Mountain Bouquet - 20 of Organic Bouquet's favorite purple blooms, Purple Statice, Mardi Gras Asters, Agapanthus, Trachelium and a touch of pink roses for a truly regal presentation.
  • Bountiful Tulips - 20-stem bouquets are grown in California using certified organic farming methods and include a glass vase with each order.
Organic production methods demonstrate viable alternatives for a floral industry increasingly responsive to consumer demands for more environmental options.

Organic flowers are a budding sector of the $13 billion organic market. U.S. sales of organic flowers grew to $8 million in 2003, an estimated 52 percent growth spurt from the previous year. Sales are expected to continue to grow 13 percent annually through 2008, according to the Organic Trade Association.

Driven by a passion for the environment and a commitment to the health of farm laborers, Organic Bouquet works with small farmers, corporate growers, and retailers to establish a thriving domestic and international market for organic flowers.
