Slow Flowers Journal

Home   |  Workshops & Classes  |  Articles  |   Blog   |  Press  

Dear Slow Flowers Friend,
I launched in January 2017 as an online editorial vehicle for sharing stories of member flower farmers, floral designers and other American-grown and sustainable topics.

The goal? To deliver news, features, profiles, Q&As, opinion pieces and lots of gorgeous photography tailored to you. By producing dense, substantial, well-reported and well-written pieces, I believed our content would change attitudes and further engage readers in the local, seasonal and American-grown floral landscape.
And today, it is my great pleasure to announce that the Slow Flowers Journal has a new home as part of the monthly print magazine Florists' Review. Under the leadership of president and publisher Travis RigbyFlorists' Review is the highest-circulation floral industry trade magazine on the market. Beginning with the August 2017 issue, I will join the magazine as a Contributing Editor -- and, you will find our dedicated editorial section called Slow Flowers Journal nestled inside the pages of Florists' Review.
Isn't that cool? Now even more readers will learn about the 
#slowflowersmovement and how they can adapt and adopt a more sustainable lifestyle in the floral industry.
Read on to learn how you can subscribe and receive 
SFJ in your mailbox each month!

Hard to capture in an image, but the demand for some varieties is so large that we sometimes receive calls from five different wholesalers for the same order that can not be fulfilled.

Color variation in garden roses

David Austin Rose "Beatrice"

Often we receive a question like: "What is the exact color of that variety?"

Many David Austin varieties not only differ from color during the seasons, but also from the same harvest of the same plant. In a 12 stem pack you'll always find different color schemes. The difference between the varieties is always very clear, but as seen below some of the Beatrice Roses are really different from the others.
One of the reasons so many future brides like David Austin wedding roses is because they really look as if they have been freshly picked from the garden. They are authentic, natural and have more 'character'. Something most modern roses lack.
