Missouri—and the property’s 132 rosebushes—while they honeymooned. “I fell in love with horticulture,” says Davis. Within the year, she left New York and bought a farm in Ashland, Missouri, where she began growing and selling flowers. (In 2008, Davis earned a master’s degree in horticulture.) In 2012, Davis and her then-partner (now wife), Miranda Duschack, got word of a greenhouse for sale in Dutchtown. Feeling adventurous, they bought the greenhouse—designed by Lord & Burnham in the ’50s—with an acre of land, eventually acquiring eight more plots that were once the site of Held’s Florist, a flower farm, dating back to the 1800s. Today, the farmstead is known as Urban Buds: City Grown Flowers, where more than 70 varieties of flowers are grown. “We’re in the heart of the city,” says Davis. “Few people get to connect with farming, and [our shop] gives them the opportunity.”
Hometown Hero | South Ashland Florist and Greenhouse - WSAZ-TVTuesday, October 22, 2019
ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) -- For more than 70 years, South Ashland Florist and Greenhouse was a community staple. Sisters Mary Gifford and Donna Suttle are honored for their decades of work in their flower business that was a community staple for more than 70 years. But those days came to an end in early August when sisters Mary Gifford and Donna Suttle made the bittersweet decision to close their family business. "It started last year Valentine's Day," Suttle said. "We kept saying, 'Are you ready to quit?' 'No, are you?' We kinda joke about it." But friends, family, and longtime customers never thought the day would actually come. "It started 73 years ago," said Gifford. Dad had just bought this house. He started a pansy patch in the backyard, and people got into it ... he had such a vision." ... https://www.wsaz.com/content/news/Hometown-Hero-South-Ashland-Florist-and-Greenhouse-547804661.html

Ashland City woman opens new flower shopTuesday, July 17, 2018
On June 11, longtime florist Kim Bevels did something she’s wanted to do for years — she opened her own business in Ashland City. The timing was right — unlike three years ago, when she had another offer on the table — for Bevels to finally open her own shop, As You Wish Floral Designs, at 101 Stratton Blvd. The space became available a few months ago, she said. She mainly creates arrangements for big events, including birthdays, funerals and weddings — and holidays like Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day — but said she wants to be flexible to meet customer’s needs. “I can make whatever you want,” Bevels said. “I can make it happen.” She noted that she can make deliveries locally, or in surrounding areas including Nashville and Clarksville. Learning the industry “fresh out of high school” in 1999, Bevels said the flower business is “in her blood” now. “It’s just making people happy, (and seeing) smiles on their face when they get an arrangement,” she said of her interest ... https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/cheatham/2018/06/27/ashland-city-woman-opens-new-flower-shop/738350002/

Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”
E. Stephen Hein Florist is located at 380 E. Second St. More info is available at www.estephenheinflorist.com.
Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php
Florist Who Bragged About Entering Nancy Pelosis Office Charged - Patch.comSunday, January 17, 2021
KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.
