There is nothing like fresh flowers to instantly lift the heart and the spirit. Flowers feed the soul. Studies show that fresh flowers in a person's environment improve their mental health and well-being and people that consistently buy fresh flowers report feeling less depressed, anxious, agitated, and experience long-term positive affects on mood. In an office setting, the presence of plants and flowers have even shown to improve cognitive performance! We think everyone needs some "flower power" in their life!
Our generously sized bouquets are 35-40 stems per bouquet and are about twice the size of a farmer’s market or standard size grocery store bouquet. You would easily pay two to three times as much for bouquets of this size and style through a traditional online wire service and you won't find flowers this fresh, fragrant, or as high quality at most grocery stores or even most florists shops.
Locally Grown Flower Bouquets Make Great Gifts!
The bouquet subscription is also a thoughtful, memorable, and one-of-kind gift that is sure to be enjoyed and appreciated by the special people in your life. Gift cards are available for any occasion. Some popular occasions include
Administrative Assistant's Day
How Does It Work?
The 2017 flower subscription service runs from July 7 through September 22. Sign-up options include 4 week, 8 week, and 12 week subscriptions.
Bouquets are available for weekly pick-up at various locations in the Western suburbs of Chicago including Naperville, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, and Lombard. Free delivery is available for subscribers located in Downers Grove and Westmont.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for community supported agriculture. A CSA directly connects community residents to their local farmers. Through a CSA, community members help support local agriculture and farmers by investing in and purchasing a future “share” in the farmer’s sustainably produced goods; typically this is in the winter or early spring when the farmer uses the advance funding to prepare and plan for the coming growing season.
In return for their investment, supporting community members are rewarded with a weekly share in the goods produced by the farmer during the growing season. Most people are familiar with vegetable CSAs, but there are many CSAs with a variety of locally produced goods some of which include fruits, eggs, meats, cheeses, artisanal breads, and of course, flowers!
What Will I Receive?
Every week you’re signed-up, you can expect to find an artfully crafted, European-style bouquet bursting with beautiful, lush, and vibrant flowers. Flower bouquets are freshly picked from our fields and crafted on the day they are delivered.
By comparison, online flowers and most grocery store bouquets are often made with week-old, imported flowers covered in chemical residues and shipped thousands of miles from where they are grown in factory greenhouses. Our flowers are LOCALLY grown, always FRESH from the field, and are SUSTAINABLY grown without harmful chemicals so they are safe to handle and have in your home.
Since flower bloom time is dependent on many variables and often subject to the whims of Mother Nature, your bouquet will contain flowers that are picked at their peak of freshness and are composed of what is “best in bloom.” Bouquets could include a mix different flowers like nostalgic heirloom varieties of fragrant sweet peas or forget-me-nots and a premium selection of flowers like large dahlias, delphiniums, and specialty sunflowers. Our aim is to always surprise and delight you.
For your convenience, flowers are ready for pick-up on Friday evening through Saturday evening for enjoyment over the weekend and all week long. We will inform you of your pick-up location with your order. In case you would like to be reminded of your weekly pick-up or delivery during your subscription, please advise us and we will call you, email, or text you (whichever you prefer) alerting you to delivery or pick-up details.
If you are out of town or unable to pick up your weekly bouquet, please feel free to share your share your flowers. Just let us know in advance and we are happy to accommodate requests.
