Before you order flowers for Mom this Mother’s Day, evaluate where they came from and how they’re grown. Organic bouquets are cultivated without poisonous pesticides, whereas conventional stems from flower-producing nations (such as Mexico, Ecuador and China) may carry 50 times the amount of pesticides allowed on foods.

Here's how to find fresh, organic, local flowers for Mom this Mother's Day:

• Flowers bearing the VeriFlora logo are socially sustainable and grown in an environmentally responsible manner that eliminates or minimizes pesticides. Ask your florist to order VeriFlora blooms.

• OrganicBouquet.com stems carry USDA organic, Fair Trade and VeriFlora certifications.

• DiamondOrganics.com offers organic flowers and bouquets from California and Hawaii. VeriFlora certified.
