The ASCFG is a trade association
which provides production and marketing information to commercial cut flower
growers in the United States and Canada. Its goal is to unite growers of
specialty cuts produced in the field, greenhouse or hoophouse, and sold to
wholesalers, retailers or directly to consumers at farmers’ markets. The Cut
Flower Quarterly
is the only major
periodical which focuses on field and greenhouse growing, research, market
trends, new varieties and other aspects of the cut flower industry.
