Lavender Green Flowers: The British florist of choice for weddings and events - ITCMTuesday, August 29, 2017
Venues include the British Museum, Claridges, The Berkeley, The Connaught, Coworth Park, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, The Langham Hotel, The National Gallery, The Natural History Museum, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, The V&A, The Wallace Collection, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle. They also create flowers on behalf of 60-100 discerning brides every year. 2017 has been the busiest year yet, with a huge influx of high profile weddings and outdoor events throughout the summer season. Working at The RHS, Chelsea Flower Show, Aegon Championships, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, they put the floral designs on the central stage, going above and beyond to deliver stand-out spectacles. (Lavender Green Flowers place a significant amount of emphasis on the whole picture, considering and often advising on every other element of an event that becomes important, such as lighting, furniture and even food.) From the initial brief and design process through to the creation and subsequent delivery, clients know that they can rely on Lavender Green Flowers’ highly inventive, hard-working and experienced team. As is often the case, nothing is ever out-sourced meaning installations are slick and efficient. The designers, florists and installers are all part of the Lavender Green Flowers’ family, and they therefore share the same passion and enthusiasm for the perfect execution of every job. Barnes says, “I was not interested in learning how to be a florist. I was interested in learning how to sell amazing flowers and how to create breath-taking flower displays. I have always wanted to be the very best I can possibly be at whatever I do, and so failure was not an option. It is incredible to make money out of a low margin product. You need the tenacity of a limpet, self-belief, a great team of kindred spirits and to enjoy the experience… plus an awful lot of luck!”...

Top Toronto Florists who deliver on-demand Flowers in the GTA - viewthevibe.comTuesday, May 21, 2019
Like a stuffed animal or something.Those days are over! Go local. Especially when Toronto city is filled with incredible florists.Top 5 Florists to order your next Bouquet Gift1. Tonic BloomsIf you’re looking for something to really make an impression, Tonic Blooms is it. They’re not your typical florist, as their bouquets are a little unconventional. I personally love their fun bouquet names, like Farm Boy which I recently used on a Valentine’s Day Gifting tv segment. They mix up flowers you wouldn’t typically see together, and to top it off, they wrap them up in their signature denim wrap which is the perfect touch. Especially if the recipient is into fashion or denim specifically in any way. Although they don’t have a physical location in Toronto, they deliver all across the city, and they have a beautiful packaging that really does protect them from arriving like a disaster. Order Now 2. Wild North FlowersA small, independent flower studio located in downtown Toronto. Their design style is natural and elegant, with that “fresh from the garden” look. They buy directly from local growers so their flowers are always fresh. Arrangements are made using fresh seasonal blooms and foliage. You pick the vase type, size and colour palette, they do the rest. Alternatively they do offer a hand tied bouquet option without a vase as well. Free Toronto delivery, and the rest of the GTA for $12. You can order online until midnight for next-day delivery, 7 days a week. If that special someone is worth that monthly reminder, or maybe it’s a treat for yourself, they also offer a monthly subscription too. Order Now 3.

Peterson opens flower shop and liquor store in Clayton - WatertownDailyTimes.comTuesday, May 21, 2019
Riverside Drive, Wednesday. After months of renovations and decorating, Mr. Peterson and his staff have transformed the former Jreck Subs, 514 Riverside Drive, into Harper Leigh Florist and the former Prudential Realty office, 421 Riverside Drive, into River Bottles. The only flower shop in the village, a satellite location of Gray’s Flower Shop, Watertown, closed a few years ago, and the last liquor store downtown shuttered before that. Despite both closures, Mr. Peterson said the demand remained, and with the growing foot traffic in the village, he decided to satisfy that demand. “I think it adds to the community,” he said. Harper Leigh Florist, named after Mr. Peterson’s two granddaughters, features coolers filled with vases of roses, some adorned with lace, for Mother’s Day and shelves with flower pots varying in shape and color, wooden window boxes with mums, daisies and other flowers, and tiny Adirondack chairs holding succulents. Diane Peterson, manager and Mr. Peterson’s sister-in-law, said the designers will make custom arrangements of flowers and foliage in their workshop past the showroom. The store will also offer fresh-cut flowers in wraps, balloons, pinatas, chocolates and tea. Mr. Peterson said he wants to incorporate a delivery service for customers living in waterfront towns and their inland hamlets from Lyme to Alexandria, as well as the town of Theresa. The building has an outdoor deck overlooking the St. Lawrence River that Mr. Peterson said he wants to turn into a garden for customers and passersby walking along the... https://watertowndailytimes.com/news03/peterson-opens-flower-shop-and-liquor-store-in-clayton-20190508

Why these fifth generation Dean farmers began growing roses - Ballarat CourierTuesday, May 21, 2019
A small group of workers rise early in the morning to tend to and pick the flowers, then work from the family farm shed, built in 1880, sorting orders of flowers for florists. Kristy Tippett, owner of Soho Rose Farm, took possession of the roses last year. A florist of 10 years, Ms Tippett had always wished to grow something herself, before the perfect opportunity arose. Ms Tippett was commuting to Melbourne to her job at Cecilia Fox, when one of the farms she sourced flowers from, Soho Rose Farm, in Drysdale, near Portarlington, was put up for sale. The property sold, but the business did not. "All of the roses were going to be bulldozed," Ms Tippett said. "It would have been a real loss to the floristry industry." So, she and her husband Brock went to the property to have a look and ended up coming home set on the idea to transfer every single rose bush - all 8000 of them - from Drysdale to Dean. "It was a pretty massive move," she said. "It was amazing and has worked out so well. The move went really well, the plants have done incredibly. We've done nothing to them really and they have thrived." Her roses are unique heritage varieties of garden roses and have an invigorating rose fragrance. Grown in the paddock, they grow more slowly than in a glasshouse and require more maintenance due to the increased susceptibility to changes in weather. Garden varieties and hothouse roses differ in size and often have different stems. Some hothous... https://www.thecourier.com.au/story/6124758/why-these-fifth-generation-dean-farmers-began-growing-roses/?cs=62
