PickOntario represents the flower growers of Ontario and promotes the beautiful flowers they grow. These growers produce over 1,000 varieties of cut, potted and outside bedding plants in their greenhouses across Ontario. By purchasing local flowers, you are receiving quality and freshness, while supporting greenhouse growers and over 7,000 employees.
“This initiative aims to engage and educate consumers about Ontario’s floriculture,” says Dejan Kristan, marketing director for PickOntario. “It is important to know what types of flowers are grown in Ontario so that you can support local businesses and the economy, and buy fresh, Ontario-cut flowers and potted plants.”
