Earth Day All Year Round In Our Greenhouses

It’s almost Earth Day, and in honor of it we here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts want to show you what’s growing in our greenhouses.

We love celebrating our planet on April 22—there’s nothing better than seeing our Baton Rouge community come together for plantings, re-cycling events, environmental fairs and clean-ups. While you’re participating in local initiatives that remind us to be good stewards of the Earth, don’t forget to bring something green home, too. One of the best ways to get kids connected to our planet and interested in protecting it is to give them—and the whole house—something green to take care of.

Eventually, what would become the Easter meal in modern times was also brought in a basket to be blessed. Baskets carry with them a sacred meaning, sure, but they’re also important symbols of comfort and plenty, which is why we here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts love to design with them.

Here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts, we love the idea of designing with scent in mind as well as color, texture and contrast. After all, our flowers should be experienced fully, since they make an appeal to all of the senses.
