Urban Buds

“Our story is one of land, community, culture, and love”

“We are a one-acre urban cut flower located in the Dutchtown neighborhood of St Louis, just seven miles south from St Louis Gateway Arch. We grow over 70 varieties of cut flowers annual, year round, and sell at Tower Grove Farmers’ Market, direct to florists, and design for wedding and events.”

“Environmental sustainability is paramount, so our flowers are grown with the use of Integrated Pest Management techniques, cover crops, compost, minimal tillage, and drip irrigation rather than harmful chemicals. The flowers are grown in our field, in a high tunnel, and in a heated glass greenhouse. It’s pretty impressive for two ladies in the middle of the city. Our flowers are lush, fragrant, unusual and beautiful; there’s nothing quite like them anywhere in St. Louis.”
