Reviews

Debra Prinzing inspires us to slow down and smell the flowers, especially those grown in our own backyards or by local flower farmers.
--Lara Spencer, ABC's Good Morning America lifestyle anchor and New York Times best-selling author of I Brake For Yard Sales.

From Debbie Arrington of the Sacramento Bee: "The mother of the Slow Flower movement, Prinzing is making a personal crusade to encourage people to think about floral purchases the same way they may approach what they eat: Buy locally grown flowers or grow them yourself."

From Ballamy Pailthorp, KPLU-FM (NPR affiliate): ."..an impassionaed advocate for a more sustainable flower industry."

From Veronica Silva, Canadian Gardening Magazine:
"In her latest book, "Slow Flowers", Debra Prinzing shows us that it is possible all year long to find beautiful ingredients for DIY bouquets in one's own garden or nearby. Her designs prove that we don't have to resort to flowers imported from faraway places... This book will have budding floral designers, snips in hand, running into the garden to gather their next bouquet."
From Craig Nakano, LA Times, February 25, 2013:
""When Debra Prinzing talks about ""Slow Flowers,"" the title of her new book, what's most striking is the extent to which concepts that sound so familiar and so logical also can seem so foreign. After all, how many times have we picked up flowers at Trader Joe's without asking ourselves: Are the blooms in season? Were they grown locally? Who produced them or where did they come from? You might find those kinds of sourcing questions answered on menus but rarely on store-bought bouquets.""
