Eco-friendly tulips at Trader Joe’s!

Grown at Sun Valley, certified VeriFlora and organic, and $6.99 for 10 stems.  What a deal!  The staff told me that they sell so fast that they can’t keep them in stock.  In fact, they don’t even put them in water.  The flowers are dry-shipped and they just put them in a basket.  They explained that by keeping them out of water, the flowers don’t open as quickly, and they go home with customers so fast that the fact that they stay out of water for a little longer while doesn’t matter.
