Do we use pesticides on our dried flowers and hop garlands?  Are the flowers grown environmentally sensitively?

We only use chemical solutions to solve disease problems when absolutely necessary, in a responsible and measured way.  We do not prophylactically spray our crops. We take our environmental sustainability very seriously but we are not certified organic. When we spray we use chemicals to specifically target disease or insect problems. The sprays used are applied in optimum conditions to avoid hitting non-target species, for example bees. We use low-drift nozzles to reduce spray drift in to the environment.

We grow and harvest our flowers using a combination of hand and mechanical methods.


Are the dyed flowers eco-friendly?

The dyed flowers and leaves are not grown or processed on our farm.  Our supplier states that the dyed flowers are created with a “water-based paint in a transparent or opaque finish”.
