- They've been great. Super flexible with delivery a monthly arrangement for our elevator lobby and splitting the bill between 4 households. Also a great place to get pots for indoor plants (and plants themselves of course).
- Surprised my best bud with flowers for her birthday from here. They have a few already-made bouquets or you can work with the florist to come up with a custom arrangement. While they're a bit pricey, the flower selection is unique and has more of a variety than other places.
- Did a bouquet for me that looked like a Renaissance still life -- gorgeous!
- I've ordered flowers from Michael several times and always received compliments on his work. Just tell him what you like and your budget and he'll come up with something beautiful. Reasonable prices and he delivers all over Seattle.
- Michael is a true flower artist! His bouquets are creative and unique! And he is extremely nice to work with too!
Not exactly a professional but...
Where are you buying holiday wreaths this year? What's fresh and ethically sourced?

@Lizprc City People was the overwhelming suggestion from people off-list. Thank you!
I am a volunteer photographer for Soulumination and they are having their annual wreath sale as we speak. They provide professional photo shoots to families who have gravely ill children. It is an amazing organization. They collect all their greens from volunteers who bring in things from their yards etc. Then, volunteer artists go to work and create incredibly unique and beautiful wreaths. All sizes and price points. 100% of the proceeds go toward continuing to fund their mission. I got mine and it is stunning. You can find the details at soulumination.org
I did a study way back in grad school on the carbon benefits/drawbacks of different types of Christmas trees. I would put wreaths in the same category as Christmas trees, as long as they come from farms. The biggest winner for Christmas trees are the ones that can be planted again, but cut trees came out ahead of fake ones because of the carbon benefit of growing the trees for several years that would not happen if people did not buy Christmas trees. If you have a fake tree, or wreath, then get a good one that will last as long as possible. So, long answer is as long as the wreaths come from a sustainable tree farm, they should be fine.
