Johnny's & Slow Flowers Partner Up

Offering informative  & inspiring articles for cut-flower success

"I'm delighted with the Johnny's Selected Seeds–Slow Flowers partnership. Our efforts to promote flower growing will foster more awareness of the incredible variety and huge rewards that come from growing cut flowers from seed. Having an employee-owned company like Johnny's that provides our industry the best flower, herb, and vegetable seeds — for farms large and small and even backyard cutting gardens like mine — is a win-win. Together, I believe we provide valuable, inspiring information about new and proven flower varieties, useful growing and harvesting techniques, and successful stories of the people involved in the Slow Flowers Community."
