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!”...

Flower Pot florists inadvertently attracting lovers of pot, not peonies - Montreal GazetteTuesday, March 19, 2019
There are also green plants galore. But none of the aforementioned can be smoked.No matter, people continue to call or drop into this florist shop on Notre-Dame St. W. and inquire about purchasing pot. That has everything to do with the name of the place, Le Pot de Fleurs / The Flower Pot.In spite of the fact that the only shops permitted to sell pot in Montreal are the provincially run Société québécoise du cannabis outlets, the message has clearly not been registered by some stoners.And so it is that Flower Pot proprietors Pia and Herbert Teichmann have been deluged by those in search of marijuana.No sooner was cannabis made legal here than the couple learned that would-be buyers went online to Google “weed stores near me” and their shop was among the destinations listed.“So I started getting phone calls asking how long the lineup was around our store,” Pia says. “Other callers wanted to know if I had any edibles or oils in stock. Then some started dropping by and wanted to know about all the different kinds of pot we carried. I had no idea there were so many different varieties of pot. At first, I didn’t even know what the people were talking about, because I’m not a marijuana person.”The deluge hasn’t stopped.“No matter what we say, we’re still getting requests. It’s nuts. But, clearly, the weed business is better than the flower business,” Herbert says. “We’d definitely be making more money at it.”But they’re not the only florists or shopkeepers dealing with this.“It seems that anyone who has &lsqu... https://montrealgazette.com/opinion/columnists/flower-pot-florists-inadvertently-attracting-lovers-of-pot-not-peonies
Agassiz florist asking community for help - Agassiz-Harrison ObserverTuesday, March 19, 2019
Lance fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning her own flower shop when she opened Holly Tree Florists and Gifts in Agassiz nearly twenty years ago. The shop – which moved from Cheam Avenue to Pioneer in 2002 – is well-known by locals, as is the aging yellow pickup truck Lance uses to deliver flower orders.But after nineteen years of bringing floral arrangements and bouquets to her community, the 72-year-old is asking locals for their support.Right before Mother’s Day, Lance underwent a bilateral femoral endarterectomy surgery – the removal of plaque from the femoral artery. Her recovery time was going to cut into profits during one of the busiest times of the year, so a fellow florist based in Mission, Tami Klassen, started a GoFundMe page to help her.“The floral industry is something people do because they love it and they’re passionate about it,” said Klassen. “Cash flow isn’t always that great in the [industry.] When good seasons come they will often cover you through to the next event.”“If you miss out on one event it can really hurt your cash flow... https://www.agassizharrisonobserver.com/news/agassiz-florist-asking-community-for-help/
Dinner series brings floriculture to the table - Greenhouse CanadaTuesday, March 19, 2019
You’re buying a feeling.”An experience is right. Starting with a cocktail reception and live music, guests are invited to make their own flower crowns as demonstrated by a local florist. The evening continues with a tour of the greenhouse, where guests are encouraged to ask any questions they have about the industry. Finally, the evening is concluded by a four-course dinner and introductions from the chef.Cultivating the next generation’s love for flowersThe first Petals & Plates was held at Rosa Flora in September 2017, with three others since then at CosMic Plants in Lincoln, Van Geest Bros in St. Catharines and Creekside Growers in Delhi. While the event is attended by people of all ages, they are starting to see more interest from the younger generations, which Kristan says is a great sign as the industry continues to develop the next generation’s relationship with flowers.“There’s a lot of gardeners, there’s a lot of flower lovers in the older generation,” he says. “But part of the fear is the newer generation, the millennial generation; they don’t have the same relationship with flowers.” Petals & Plates is one way to get people looking at flowers in a new light.For example, there’s the flower crown bar during the event. “It’s not your classic flower crown that you’re thinking of that has 100 flowers and maybe some fruit in it,” says Kristan. “These are very subdued.” People are keen to wear them as fashion accessories.Demonstrating the relevancy of floriculture is not the only goal of Petals & Plates, however. “There’s a lot of misconceptions with the industry,” says Kristan. By inviting people to see how flowers are grown and brought to the marketplace, Petals & Plates provides a venue for greenhouse operators to clarify misconceptions and instill pride in the industry. “Allowing people to come see what goes on in these greenhouses goes a long way to dispelling those rumours,” he says.According to Ed Vermolen, sales manager at Aldershot Greenhouses and volunteer member of... https://www.greenhousecanada.com/business/marketing/bringing-floriculture-to-the-table-32796
