ArkLaTex Made: Plum Nelly - A Flower Farm

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT/BOSSIER CITY, La. -

KTBS 3's Rick Rowe found a flower farm full of ArkLaTex Made flowers.

Plum Nelly – A Flower Farm delivers to most places in the Shreveport – Bossier area.

Owner Mary Marston says that she has always loved flowers; her father was a farm so she just combined the two.

"Locally grown flowers will last twice as long as those from anywhere else" says Marston.

Marston says that "about eighty percent of the flowers you buy come from South American which means they were picked two weeks prior to you receiving them and by the time you get them, it's amazing they're still alive."

Flowers that aren't locally grown are also known to have been given a lot of pesticides so they are full of chemicals and they are "sad" according to Marston because they haven't "had a free life."

Marston encourages people to buy local grown flowers because they are more fresh and last longer. She says that at Plum Nelly, they have a lot of different breads of flowers.

"People want sunflowers so I keep a lot of varieties. I have Zena's and Cosmo's. I have some Asters and Lilies and I have herbs and rosemary" says Marston.

Marston says that she enjoys what she does and loves hearing how happy people are a week after they bought them. She says that there is "nothing more heaven on earth" for her and she can't imagine doing anything else because the flower farm is her passion.
