Why these fifth generation Dean farmers began growing roses - Ballarat CourierTuesday, May 21, 2019
A florist of 10 years, Ms Tippett had always wished to grow something herself, before the perfect opportunity arose. Ms Tippett was commuting to Melbourne to her job at Cecilia Fox, when one of the farms she sourced flowers from, Soho Rose Farm, in Drysdale, near Portarlington, was put up for sale. The property sold, but the business did not. "All of the roses were going to be bulldozed," Ms Tippett said. "It would have been a real loss to the floristry industry." So, she and her husband Brock went to the property to have a look and ended up coming home set on the idea to transfer every single rose bush - all 8000 of them - from Drysdale to Dean. "It was a pretty massive move," she said. "It was amazing and has worked out so well. The move went really well, the plants have done incredibly. We've done nothing to them really and they have thrived." Her roses are unique heritage varieties of garden roses and have an invigorating rose fragrance. Grown in the paddock, they grow more slowly than in a glasshouse and require more maintenance due to the increased susceptibility to changes in weather. Garden varieties and hothouse roses differ in size and often have different stems. Some hothouse roses have a fragrance, while others do not. "Because I'm a florist as well and have dealt with a lot of brides I know that when they pick their bridal bouquet they want it to smell really beautiful. These roses give that nostalgic feeling and that is the beauty of it," she said. Growing up, Ms Tippett was always interested in gardening as her mum was very experienced. Moving from floristry, where she was dealing with only the blooms, to going full circle to learning about how to actually grow and tend to the ros... https://www.thecourier.com.au/story/6124758/why-these-fifth-generation-dean-farmers-began-growing-roses/?cs=62

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.
