Green


Did you know that juniper is not only a full service florist but we are happily a "green" florist? Since I started in the floral business nearly 10 years ago I was always shocked to see how most flower shops, though they sell a natural product, have very unnatural practices. I believe that a flower will survive for it's optimum time if given heaps of TLC, fresh water DAILY and kept in tepid conditions out of direct sunlight and not kept in a chiller using needless energy. Our flowers last long and our customers will tell you the care we take shows. We NEVER use or give flower preservative with our bunches because we believe educating our customers on how they can preserve flowers naturally is most helpful and better for the environment. We are also developing ways of composting our green waste with others in the Newtown community. If you are a Newtown resident or business owner in the central main district and would like to form a compost co op we'd love to hear from you. Please call Mindy from juniper 389 4058 .
