Forego the single Valentine’s bouquet for a whole season of them with a bouquet subscription from Durango’s Passion Flower Bouquet Farm. After all, from girlfriends to old friends and all of the budding romances between, there will always be someone in your life who needs a bouquet to brighten their day!
You won’t get one in time for Valentine’s Day, but the gift will come back tenfold while the flowers are in season, May through October. Passion Flower is a local Community-Supported Agriculture option, meaning your subscription helps the farm purchase seeds and cover labor for all your beautiful bouquets to come (a worthy investment). The flowers, vase, and season help guide each week’s unique bouquet, and you’ll receive newsletters throughout the bloom so you can see what’s coming and pick which ones you want to opt into!
(Pssst, April’s Garden will also be showcasing Passion’s flowers in their bouquets this year if you want to get a whiff)
