Our Slow Flowers Programs & Events
Each of our Slow Flowers Programs and Events is designed to better connect consumers with florists, shops, studios and farmers who supply domestic and American-grown flowers and foliages. Our goal is to deliver unique content and resources to Consumers and Flower Entrepreneurs!
Slowflowers.com serves an important B2C and B2B role as a free, nationwide, online directory to our members. We feature florists, shops, studios and farms that supply local, seasonal and sustainably-grown flowers to their communities.
We launched Slowflowers.com in 2014 with 250 members and it has since grown to more than 880 members across the U.S. and Canada.

Established and led by editorial director Debra Prinzing and creative director Robin Avni, BLOOM Imprint is a Pacific Northwest-based publishing venture whose mission is to work with creative floral entrepreneurs to produce floral, garden and design lifestyle titles by identifying authors and topics unique to the marketplace.
As a boutique publisher, BLOOM Imprint develops flower-inspired books from the seed of an initial concept to the final publication. Our development process maximizes each author's key creative strengths and hones in on both a core editorial purpose and visual expression to communicate an author's individual personality and brand mission.
American Flowers Week
Launched in 2015, American Flowers Week is the original domestic flower promotion holiday, produced by Slow Flowers LLC. The one-week celebration encourages all facets of the floral industry to use #americanflowersweek and related collateral to draw attention to and promote domestic flowers.
We generated 3.1 million social media impressions and inspired participation across all channels of the floral industry, including media, flower farming, floral design, retail and grocery, wholesale, ecommerce and other vendors, such as plant, seed and hard goods partners.
American Flowers Week's Botanical Fashions Campaign is featured every year in June.
The Slow Flowers Summit
The Slow Flowers Summit debuted in 2017 as a "LIVE" forum taking place during the heart of American Flowers Week.
Developed and produced by Debra Prinzing and Slow Flowers LLC, the Summit is designed to bring together creatives, thought leaders and change agents to participate in a lecture series and related events.
Our sixth Slow Flowers Summit will return to the Seattle area, June 26-27, 2023, hosted by the award-winning Bellevue Botanical Garden in Bellevue, Washington.
