Hi everybody,

I have a question about a special gift I would like to make for a special girl.

It's not easy to find organic flowers to deliver in Long Island, and I would like to know if somebody is able to do that.

Actually, I would like to give to the girl a bunch of different kinds of organic flowers (with no chemical fertilizer) and a bottle of bier (Brooklynn Brewery) and a letter of me.

I can't do it my self, because I'll not be in USA for the next 3 months at least...

It's important for me, and so, if you can help me, thanks a lot

Good Bye

Hum, yeah sorry, maybe it's not the good term. I'm french, so my american writing is not so good.

I mean flower without chemical fertilizer. Ecological flowers...

I'll answer for the OP

No I am not jesting, and don't call me Shirley.

C'est tres difficile. Many of the flowers sold by American florists are not grown in the US. It would be hard to trace their precise origin. You could try contacting one of the wholesalers located in the flower district in Manhattan (around 28th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues). There are some farms on the east end of Long Island that grow flowers, but I do not know if they are organic. There is a large one that sells only in bulk to retailers. Bonne chance.
