Grow Plant Shop's First Brick-and-Mortar to Open Saturday - Fort Worth MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
It's the final week in the Airstream for Magnolia Avenue plant shop Grow.
That's because, on Saturday, Grow will be celebrating the grand opening of its new digs — the shop's first-ever brick-and-mortar location at 4800 Camp Bowie Blvd.
In a social media announcement, Grow stated that it would forgo a grand opening party due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Only six customers will be allowed in the shop at a time, and any overflow will need to wait outside, six feet apart. Masks are also required.
Still, it's a welcome change for the plant shop that built a loyal following on Magnolia, thanks to its eye-catching, chrome Airstream, parked on the lawn next to Maggie's R&R and stocked to the brim with an ample selection of shrubs, succulents, and other greenery. Owners Emily and Bobby Lynge always saw the Airstream as temporary, however, and during the pandemic, were able to make the move to the space once occupied by The Enchanted Florist on Camp Bowie.

The Bouquet Farm blooms in the Fraser Valley - Vancouver SunWednesday, March 31, 2021
English says with a laugh. “My grandfather was a greenhouse grower and they had a wholesale floral industry. And my dad took over a portion, so I worked for him. … And then my mom was also a florist.” Her father eventually sold the floral arm of the family business connected to Houweling Nurseries, where English continued to work after the sale. But, when the floral company closed down, forcing English to lose her job — an event that coincided with a breast cancer diagnosis — she took some time to focus on herself. And then, she got right back into the growing game. source data-srcset="https://smartcdn.prod.postmedia.digital/vancouversun/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/258982965-1227_feat_bouquet_farm_1-s.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=472&type=jpg, https://smartcdn.prod.postmed... https://vancouversun.com/homes/gardening/the-bouquet-farm-blooms-in-the-fraser-valley

Eric Buterbaugh with his floral arrangement in front of Fred Segal on Sunset near La CienegaRenowned floral designer Eric Buterbaugh is the mastermind behind each of the arrangements. The florist-to-the-stars told WEHOville that he gave special care to create an arrangement appropriate for each location.“I always check out the surrounding elements for inspiration,” said Buterbaugh. “For example, I thought it’d be fun to incorporate pink pampasin front of Pink Dot. I was inspired by the yellow building at the Sunset Plaza sign so we incorporated stunning yellow forsythia, yellow acacia, yellow lipstick pincushion protea and lots of soft pinks for an opulent, springtime vibe. We are using vibrant colors for the installation in front of Fred Segal to play off the use of colors in the Fred Segal logo.”Floral arrangement in front of the new Pendry Hotel at 8430 Sunset Blvd. at Olive DriveButerbaugh is excited to have created these special arrangements because stunning florals are something he associates with West Hollywood.“When I think of West Hollywood, I think of glamour, beauty and style which are the same adjectives that I associate with flowers,” said Buterbaugh. 0 0 voteArticle Rating/div... https://wehoville.com/2021/03/28/floral-arrangements-placed-along-sunset-are-gift-to-weho-from-the-soon-to-open-pendry-hotel/

A Flower Display in Burlington Honored the COVID-19 Dead - Seven DaysWednesday, March 31, 2021
Vermonters who have died from COVID-19 since the disease struck the state nearly a year ago. "It often feels like we're just talking about numbers and tallies," said creator Jayson Munn, a florist who mainly works weddings and other events. "I thought this was a great opportunity to do it in the public square." Burlington was one of about 80 cities nationwide that hosted an art installation as part of the Floral Heart Project. Created by New York City-based artist Kristina Libby, the idea was to designate March 1 as a national day of mourning to publicly grieve those "lost to and suffering from COVID-19." As of Tuesday, more than 515,000 Americans have died. Munn said one woman he talked to had lost her husband to the disease. She told him that visiting the flower memorial had been the first time she'd publicly grieved his death; both she and Munn "started bawling," he said. He gave her a rose. "It was a really touching, touching moment," Munn said. Daniel "D.J." Boyd of Wilmington was walking down Church Street when he saw a crowd by the display and thought, Gee, only in Burlington do you see a bunch of roses in the street and everyone just walking around taking pictures. Boyd walked over himself and read the sign that Munn had erected explaining the display, "and it just struck me," he said. His uncles, twins Leon and Cleon Boyd, had died of COVID-19 early last April, just six days apart. "It's amazing," Boyd said of the display. "It's a good gesture. It puts it into perspective, you know?" Boyd walked over to Munn and told him he'd lost his uncles. Munn picked up two long-stemmed roses from the bricks, and then handed them to Boyd. https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/a-flower-display-in-burlington-honored-the-covid-19-dead/Content?oid=32450871
