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.""
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): "" impassionaed advocate for a more sustainable flower industry.""

""Debra Prinzing inspires us to slow down and smell the flowers, especially those grown in our own backyards or by local flower farmers.
