Yahoo's article on florist roses & toxicity
I felt very down reading about the workers in South America exposed to deadly poisons as they work in the greenhouses growing roses for us to buy as cut flowers. I hate to think of flowers being the cause of suffering to anyone. Does anyone know of a source of Organic flowers available for sale in the US ? I grow my own roses but still like to buy hot house Carnations and Stocks. After reading about the suffering going on, I just don't feel like buying cut flowers anymore.
