By Any Other Name

Okay, admit it….when you think of organic flowers do you think of weeds? I do! Many of the flowers that are grown organically are not the type of flowers you would typically use for centerpieces. But, with some careful planning, they can be. Some time ago, I visited an organic farm near me and to my surprise they had sweetpeas growing wild (and organically) all over their property. They also had delphinium, roses, irises and sunflowers growing organically. They showed me mint, fever few, echinacea and lavender; and incorporated into a bouquet look very nice together. I purchased a couple of their medicinal bouquets, which included the herbal components mentioned above and made a bouquet for someone in the hospital. I was greeted by three employees at the front desk who couldn’t stop asking me about this bouquet. Yes, they noticed it had mint in it and couldn’t get over how nice it looked and smelled! The bottom line here is it is very possible to have organic centerpieces that look elegant and you will be proud to display.
