graduationa3We, at Allen’s Flowers and Plants, are focused on providing fresh flowers, which means that we only partner with local flower farmers to ensure we get the best possible selection for our customers. It is just one of the reasons that we have voted the favorite San Diego florist so many years in a row!FB valentines 2

In San Diego County, we are fortunate to have many excellent flower farmers to partner with that share our vision of fresh and sustainable flowers. Our flower partners are part of the San Diego County Flower and Plant Association, which has over 200 members.

Our climate in San Diego provides a great environment for year round flowers that we can locally source for all our flower bouquets, flower arrangements, and flower gifts.

We also work with local growers who supply all of our San Diego flower shops with green plants, flowering plants, and fresh fruit for our gift baskets.moma4

For example, Carlsbad is known for its flower fields, including tulips, while the inland areas of San Diego County provide drier, more temperate climate for other types of flowers.

Some of our partners also focus on organic farming and have initiated ‘green’ practices in their flower farming to ensure that the flowers are available for future generations to enjoy.

What locally sourced flowers means for you is that the flowers do not have to travel so far before they get to us for hand arranging and hand delivering.romantic3

That means more time in your hands as fresh flowers with a longer shelf life for you to enjoy. The bottom line means that this provides you with more value for your money.

Other advantages mean that our local partnerships provide us with special access to unique flowers that other florists cannot offer as well as special pricing that we can also pass onto our customers. This can make a real difference when planning for a special event or wedding when you need a lot of flowers or you need to make a last-minute change.chrys2
