FAQ

Why choose locally grown flowers?

There are so many reasons to grow and buy locally grown flowers! 

  • flowers from The Garden in Harrington are fresh picked and will last longer than other flowers that have travelled farther to get to you. Here, Southern Ontario, most flowers travel more than 1100 kilometres from grower to vase, but flowers grown in Oxford County just don't have to travel that far from farm to vase.

  • Local flowers means more variety! Some of the prettiest flowers don't travel well and just cannot make the trip from distant growing fields to your vase. The Garden in Harrington can grow flowers like Zinnias and Sweet Peas and get them to your door fresh, and beautiful!

  • Local flowers just smell better. Flower varieties grown locally have a great scent and are picked at their peak freshness. These flowers smell like the flowers your grandma used to bring in from her garden in ways that the flowers shipped in from a distance just don't. 

  • Local flowers are better for your health and the health of the planet. Not only do flowers brighten a dreary day and make us all feel a little happier, the Garden in Harrington is also a small flower farm that works with regenerative and sustainable garden practices to avoid pesticide use altogether. Our flowers, look great and smell fantastic - without any toxic sprays!

What is The Garden's 1 for 1 program all about?

We believe that everyone should have a few flowers in their life, but we recognize that for some people, particularly shut ins or seniors living in senior living facilities, that access to fresh cut flowers might not be all that possible. So, we decided to start our 1 for 1 program. For every bouquet of flowers purchased, we will donate a tussie bouquet of flowers to a shut in or senior's facility.
