Certified Farmers Market Fresh Pick of the week: Fresh Cut Flowers and Locally Grown Orchids
April 6, 2009, Palm Springs, CA
- Although they are always available at the Certified Farmers’ Market
, we thought the week leading up to Easter was a particularly good time to feature our Fresh Cut Flowers and Locally Grown Orchids
. Choose from a variety of fresh cut flower options that look great and smell even better. Cut flowers make the perfect gift for friends and family, or to brighten up your own home during the Easter season. Lillies, while always in fashion, are an Easter tradition. They’re also a lovely reflection of Spring, and a wonderful way to bring the outdoors inside.
Our Locally-Grown Orchids are another great gift idea for the Easter holiday, or as a gift to celebrate Springtime here in the Coachella Valley. Orchids are traditional Easter favorite as well, and ours are raised by a local farmer who offers a wide variety of hybrids that you won’t find anywhere else.
Did you know:
The Orchid family is the largest family of the flowering plants in the world. There are more than 22,000 accepted species, and there may be as many as 25,000 (because of taxonomic disputes). But even 25,000 is dwarfed when one takes into account the astounding number of hybrid orchids – over 100,000!
