1. Tell us about Petal by Pedal.

Petal by Pedal seeks to bring locally grown bouquets to New York City doorsteps, by bicycle. Celebrating the natural beauty growing within our own backyard, Petal by Pedal picks seasonal flowers from urban rooftops, Brooklyn gardens, and New York farms — and delivers them via Bullitt cargo bicycles bearing PxP’s nostalgic logo. Our handcrafted bouquets are thoughtfully arranged and sustainably packaged in recycled brown kraft paper and mason jars, with our cards typed out by typewriter. We offer authenticity and connection in the realm of buying flowers online — flowers simplified.
