Floristry: "Slow Flower" movement relies on sustainable cut flowers

The "Slow Food" movement, which emerged in Italy in 1986, campaigns worldwide for regional and high-quality food. The "Slow Flower" movement, which was founded three years ago, wants to build on this idea. It includes gardeners and florists from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. "We work in a way that conserves resources, with as little water and electricity as possible and without pesticides or floral foam," said Claudia Werner, who runs the "Kleiner Wilder Garten" nursery in Bremen. She is a member of the movement.

"I raise everything myself: from the seed or the tuber to the finished plant," said Werner. She makes colourful, seasonal bouquets from the cut flowers, which she sells in health food stores. She also equips wedding and birthday parties or funerals with flower arrangements, wreaths or bridal bouquets. Starting with seven members, the "Slow Flower" organization now has almost 200 members.
