Toilet paper over tulips: How the floral industry is being affected by COVID - UNF SpinnakerMonday, April 27, 2020
People on Instagram are using hashtags such as #onebloom created by florist Holly Chapple to view flowers as a symbol of hope. Rachael Ann Lunghi, owner of Siren Floral Co in Southern California, is bringing florists together and sharing her skills by hosting bouquet and centerpiece classes on Instagram live videos. “Let’s keep flowering together even though we are distancing,” Lunghi said in a recent Instagram post. These videos gather hundreds of florists per session who interact with each other through comments, sharing tips, and support. Many florists have even recognized the public’s need for beauty and given away flowers once intended for high-budget weddings or events. Ann Evans of Cypress Floral Design in Downtown Jacksonville donated centerpieces that were originally made for an event to small businesses around the city. Shepard also shares this hope for the floral community. Recently, his podcast interviews have been focused on providing much-needed advice and encouragement for listeners. Above all, Shepard believes that floral designers, wholesalers, and customers need to communicate and show each other grace during this time. “We just need to be a little more gentle and a little more caring and not quite so cold,” he says. https://unfspinnaker.com/83395/latest-stories/toilet-paper-over-tulips-how-the-floral-industry-is-being-affected-by-covid/
