Anderson's Sunflower Farm brightens up scenery in Cumming - Gainesville TimesMonday, July 11, 2016
Anderson couldn’t see a good reason.It was a good decision.The man who grew up farming now owns and operates Anderson’s Sunflower Farm at 3360 Shiloh Road in Cumming. The farm is a popular summer destination for Georgians taking family portraits or interested in purchasing bright, yellow blooms.Anderson explained the decision to plant sunflowers was made in 1994 when his father phased out the hog operation.“We weren’t going to grow corn and wheat and such anymore for the animals,” Anderson said. “So that year, my dad said rather than letting the fields grow up into weeds, he was going to plant sunflowers.“I said, ‘Why? You’ve got to be kidding.’”But the family planted the flowers all the same, and within one year, it was a hit in the community.“People would actually stop and leave notes in the mailbox, thanking him for making their drive to work more pleasant,” Anderson said.Later that same year, one of Anderson’s daughters suggested they try selling the flowers. He told them to make signs and see if they have any luck. Any money they made, he said they could keep.People started stopping and buying. More than 18 years later, business is booming.“It’... http://www.gainesvilletimes.com/section/199/article/117790/

Capital - Why are flowers so expensive? - BBC NewsTuesday, May 21, 2019
Jeanie McKewan, who has been growing flowers for 13 years in the US states of Illinois and Wisconsin, points to insect damage as a big challenge, saying there’s a “zero tolerance” policy: “It is through constant vigilance and the use of integrated pest management that we keep the little buggers from getting the best of our crops,” she says.Then the flowers have to bloom on schedule. In the case of Mother’s Day tulips planted in January or February, they have to bloom by early May in time to be picked and shipped.Labour costs are already high – according to the 2012 US Agricultural Census, contract and hired labour accounted for 10% of total agricultural operating expenses in the US, but that number soared to 40% for greenhouse, nursery and floriculture production because of a tighter farm labour market and rising wages. Then you add extra costs for peaks.McKewan hires extra hands during peak periods but says cutting flowers “requires experience and cannot be done by just any part-time employee”. Chris Drummond, a Philadelphia-based florist, says wages average around $13.25 (£10.16) per hour in the US. “In order to ramp up production to meet holiday demand, growers are required to pay far above that average,” he says.In developed countries like the Netherlands or Germany, Stewart says that there are greenhouses with automated technology like sophisticated watering machines or robot transplanters and harvesters, where fewer workers are needed. But in poorer nations with cheaper labour, there’s less use of technology. Then it’s time for shipping. While flowers are waiting on the runway or in the back of a lorry, temperatures can’t be too cold (for Valentine’s Day) or too hot (for Mother’s Day). When they arrive at the wholesaler, they must look perfect. That means no bug bites, no missing petals, no dead buds. Otherwise, they get thrown away. “It has to be flawless,” Stewart says.Complicated logisticsChris Drummond, the florist, estimates that the holiday volume “is usually nearly 20 times the everyday volume”. He says many farmers nurture flowers all year long to ensure enough blooms for the handful of holidays. During the other months on the farm, he says, flowers are sold at cost, below cost or discarded and turned into mulch.“So, of course farm price increases as demand increases,” he says. “Consumers are paying a premium to make sure that grower is compensated for their expense and effort to maintain the plants year-round, thus ensuring the wide variety of flowers is available at each holiday.”He highlights costs across the supply chain, saying industry participants must “rent temporary space, pay fuel surcharges, find space on airlines, hire independent drivers, find more refrigerated trucks, pay overtime to staff” and more. Roses flown from Bogota to Miami are hit with a 15-cent (£0.12) importer’s fee to clear customs and inspection. Domestic refrigerated shipping can vary, but that’s another eight cents (£0.06) per rose.It also depends on what kind of flower you’re shipping – Drummond says 300 carnations can fit into the same box as 150 roses, so the transport price per stem is halved. Transit time from field to florist can be up to a week (though it can wildly vary depending on where the flowers are coming from), and the blooms must be carefully handled every step of the way.Hans Larsen is a cut flower grower in the US s... http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20190507-why-are-flowers-so-expensive
