Flower girl - Boothbay RegisterTuesday, September 26, 2017
Washington, D.C., and now in Brunswick.Lutte, who grew up in East Boothbay and Damariscotta, and her husband, who grew up in New Harbor, met while attending Lincoln Academy in Newcastle. They were living in Washington D.C. when they started talking about moving back to Maine in 2008. “My goal was always to have horses,” Lutte said. They found the perfect place in 2009, in Farmingdale.Thanks to an old sign that read “Lay Z Acres,” that they found in the barn on the property, they had a name for their farm. It's called Lazy Acres.After starting a fence for the horses, the couple began to formulate a plan to generate some income on their farm. “We were spending all our free time working on the farm, because we loved doing it.”Lutte started researching flower-growing. She found several icons in the industry, and began following “every single thing they had ever written in their lives about growing flowers.”She learned that MOFGA was offering a free tour of a flower farm in Whitefield, and signed up. The owner, Andrea Ault, was a florist who grew all of her flowers herself. She soon became a mentor to Lutte.The Luttes started getting serious about growing flowers. They rototilled a few rows in their fields last fall, and in the spring they started planting.They agreed that their first year growing flowers would be a trial period, so they wouldn't get too stressed out over weather and learning curves. They were going to determine if they could grow flowers, and if they liked growing flowers. “We decided to put seeds and seedlings, and some plugs (tiny seedlings), in the ground, and see how it went. If we lost them, we lost them.”“It was so different from the way I'd grown flowers before, which was to not cut them, but to just let them grow to look at in the g... http://www.boothbayregister.com/article/flower-girl/91929?source%3Dmp

Citizen of the Year: Catlins fantastic florist - Champaign/Urbana News-GazetteTuesday, January 08, 2019
Danville, where she met her husband, Tim, then a manager trainee.She and Tim married in May 1987. That October, Tim's job with the department store took them to Iowa and then Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming and Minnesota. In Nebraska, Welsh — who continued to work as a florist out west — directed community theater, served on the Miss Nebraska Pageant board of directors and directed the pageant for three years. In Wyoming, she was involved with the Cheyenne Frontier Days, billed as the world's largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration.In 2004, the couple and their young son, Tanner, moved back to Catlin to be near family. A couple of years later, Welsh opened Floral-n-Flair, a flower shop and event-planning business, in the same downtown building she started out in. She and business partner Kay Smoot also own and operate a gift boutique called Pauline's Attic.Welsh was working one evening when Stutsman popped in."Who got it, and how are we going to decorate?" she asked, thinking he'd stopped by to discuss the Citizen of the Year banquet at the Methodist Church, which she decorates.She was floored by his answer."It still hasn't sunk in," she said, the day before the banquet.While honored, Welsh was quick to acknowledge her "crew," including local high school students and residents who help her set up for community events, weddings and parties — and family. Tanner, who turns 21 this month, has autism, and Tim is his full-time caregiver and still finds time to help out at work."I wouldn't be able to do any of this without him," she said."It's always been a team effort," she continued, adding she learned that from her dad who helped out in many ways at the shop and home before he passed away a couple of years ago.Welsh recalled sitting at the family table years ago after her brother became a 1,000-yard rusher on his high school football team."My dad pointed to his picture on the front of the sports page and said, 'He wouldn't have done that without his line that blocked for him.' I've always remembered that. You can't do it alone. You have to surround yourself with good people and work as a team."... http://www.news-gazette.com/noelle-mcgee/2018-11-01/citizen-the-year-catlins-fantastic-florist.html

How an Ecuadorian rose makes the journey to your American sweetheart for Valentine's Day - The Denver PostSunday, February 11, 2018
Wholesale Florist in north Denver. Amato broke into the wholesale business in January 1974. (The company started as a carnation grower in 1958.) It ships flowers across Colorado, but also to Kansas, Wyoming and Nebraska.President and CEO Heather Weickum was born in that first year. She grew up roller skating on the warehouse’s concrete floors after hours. Her father was a co-founder and eventually became the sole owner of the business.“This place was my only sibling growing up,” she said.Now Weickum runs the company and employs 70 people. Amato projects it will sell 130,000 stems of flowers over the Valentine’s holiday, tallying up hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit. The most popular varieties of roses can cost a retailer more than $70 a bunch.Amato can stock several hundred varieties of flowers at a time in the warehouse, and more than half of those are roses. They come in a rainbow of hues and gaggle of names, many inspired by the flower breeder’s daughter, mother or lover. Some names, such as Hot Nina, Lola and Jessika, call to mind an old flame. Others read like perfume ads tucked in a magazine: Pearl Avalanche, Sweet Unique, Cool Water. And then there are the names that beckon to whom they’re selling: Sweetness, Engagement, Soulmate. Rose breeders trademark these names and can receive royalties from other plantations that grow their variety.Most roses are natives of Ecuador. The year-round sunshine and high-altitude...
