With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, the floral industry is getting ready for one of its busiest seasons! Flower farms are a growing part of the horticulture industry and can be found scattered across Georgia from the mountains to the coast.
Now more than ever shoppers want to buy locally grown products and support local businesses. This has led to more and more vendors bringing fresh cut-flower bouquets to sell at farmers’ markets. Southern garden bouquets are the perfect gift for almost any occasion. Because most local flower farms are functioning on a farm-to-vase model, the bouquets are mainly made up of seasonal blooms. Luckily for Georgia farmers, that season can last from late winter through the summer.
With more than 90 Georgia businesses offering fresh-cut flower bouquets grown locally, you are sure to find the perfect bouquet for your valentine!
