Organic Roses and Tulips for Valentine's Day

February 10 , 2003 Novato CA -- This Valentine's Day, thirty-one colorful varieties of organic roses and tulips certified under the new USDA organic regulations are available for the first time online at OrganicBouquet.com and at supernatural food markets nationwide.

Organic Bouquet, Inc., the nation's leading organic flower provider, is credited for introducing the natural product industry's newest category Organic Floral. Retailers including Whole Foods Markets, Wild Oats Markets and Trader Joe's were among the first to carry the products.

Why Organic flowers, we don't eat them? "There is more to organic than healthy foods", says Organic Bouquet co-founder and CEO Gerald Prolman. "Organic flowers address the main purpose of organic production, which is to enrich the soil and produce crops in a responsible manner. Overall, organic floral production encourages healthy stewardship of the earth."

"Growing flowers organically is very important because it is safer for farmers and farmworkers and is good for the environment.

Do organic flowers cost more? According to Organic Bouquet co-founder and President Dave Smith: "Price is always a question of supply and demand, but the big-picture answer is that, beyond the price tag, there are hidden costs associated with non-organic production; specifically, the potential negative impact to the environment and to the health of farmworkers. So, whether or not organic is a bit higher in price, as a true value, it is always a much better deal any way you look at it.

Smith declares: "Organic flowers say 'I care about you, and I care about the earth!'"

The USDA now establishes the definition of "organic". This definition is applicable to horticulture as well. Organic agriculture is generally defined as: an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles, biological soil activity, and minimizes the use of off-farm inputs. The primary goal of organic agriculture is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people.
