  1. I am trying to contact American Grown. Can you please provide me with an email I can get it contact with?


  2. Sirs:
    Today I received your American Grown Farm & Flower Guide.
    We have been supply wholesalers for 44 years now. After reading your new guide, I feel it important to spread this every part of the floral industry. It is not often that we get the chance to push “Buy American”, so this opportunity gives us the chance to do just that.
    This comment format does not allow me to attach the file article that we would like to post in our flowerblog. So please send me the email address where I can forward the article for your review, Then please review it, then, we seek your blessing and permission to post.

    Lynn Eggett, President
