Sweet Grown Alabama Summer U-Pick Flower Farms

Sweet Grown Alabama Summer U-Pick Flower Farms

Stop and Smell the Local Flowers

There is just something special about picking your very own bouquet of fresh smelling flowers to set in the center of the kitchen table for all to see. Alabama has ideal conditions for growing and is home to several types of fresh cut flowers. While you may not be able to find specific flowers year-round like the ones that are imported from other countries, when you buy local, you know exactly where your flowers are coming from.

When visiting a Sweet Grown Alabama cut flower operation you will notice a stark contrast to imported flowers, which arrive at the florist or retailer a week after cutting. Picking your own flowers is also better for the environment. Transportation accounts for 29% of greenhouse gas emissions, which are reduced by local purchases.
