The Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ASCFG), a non-profit trade association dedicated to educating and uniting commercial cut flower growers, recently launched localflowers.org. This enhanced site profiles its member growers, wholesale and retail florists, and floral designers across the United States and in 17 other countries.
Easily searchable by city or postal code, localflowers.org pairs customers with floral needs of any type with local ASCFG members. Each grower, wholesaler, florist or floral designer has a unique Member Page which outlines floral varieties and services available, with links to company web pages and social media accounts.

ASCFG members’ flowers are grown sustainably with care for the environment, something important to everyone. Also, every dollar spent strengthens the local community, something everyone feels good doing."
