Stuck inside? Tips for indoor gardening to bring green to your space while quarantined - USA TODAYThursday, April 02, 2020
Grow lights, which offer the full spectrum of light plants need, can help if your home has low-light conditions.

"Place the grow lights close to the plants and leave them on for 12 to 16 hours per day."Research what kind of light your houseplants need: For instance, he says, cacti, succulents and Ficus require three to four hours of direct sun each day, "bright enough to cast a shadow and to read a newspaper," Warhurst says. Low, indirect light is best for plants such as pothos and Chinese evergreens."These areas may be further away from a window or where sunl... https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2020/03/31/coronavirus-quarantine-tips-garden-indoors-while-stuck-inside/2928016001/

If you are a cat owner, think carefully before bringing an Easter lily, or lily of any kind, into your home. Popular plants that are poisonous to pets and other yard hazards All of us likely grow plants that could be toxic to dogs or cats. The good news is, incidents of poisoning from plants are not common. Don’t throw away Easter liliesLeft over Easter lilies used to decorate churches should not be discarded. Also, purchase plants on sale in nurseries at reduced prices. Once the flowers have all faded, you can plant your Easter lily outside in a garden bed. Remove the plant from the pot and plant it into a well prepared bed enriched with compost. Choose a location that receives morning sun and some afternoon shade. Easter lilies go dormant in midsummer. When the foliage yellows later on this summer, cut the plant back down to the ground and mark the location so you will remember where it is.Easter lilies will begin to grow again this fall, around October.

Poinsettias signify the holiday season - The PostMonday, December 17, 2018
The overwintering process also requires poinsettias to be placed in a cool place; some may bury the plant in the ground, some may simply put it in the fridge.Poinsettias may also be a hazard to small children or pets in the household, but they are not deadly. “Poinsettias are mildly toxic, irritating but not fatal,” Thompson said. Thompson said she sometimes buys poinsettias, as she likes the color and their longevity. However, she also keeps an alternative. “I personally keep a Norfolk pine,” Thompson said. “My family has had one for a long time. It’s a small tree you can keep up all year, and during Christmas you can decorate it with lights and ornaments.” The holidays are a great time for Jack Neal Floral at 15 W. Union St., said Tasha Neal, an owner of Jack Neal Floral. “We’re looking forward to the holiday season,” Neal said. “It’s really exciting for us. It’s that time where everything in the store switches themes.”Jack Neal will receive its annual poinsettia shipment sometime next week. “We do sell a lot. Sales have gone down over the years though, most likely because grocery stores and convenience,” Neal said. “Poinsettias can be difficult to care for and easy to kill, so some may buy them one year and get discouraged.”Neal also said poinsettias can be finicky. “They require light, but not too much. They can’t be near a draft, so places near vents or windows or doors won’t work,” Neal said. “Watering them is iffy, too. They can’t be too dry or too wet. They are fragile as well.”But buyers, amateur gardeners or plant enthusiasts shouldn’t quit trying with poinsettias. As a commercial flower, they are part of the buying cycle. Their beauty can be year-long and their seasonal blooms can be encouraged. Poinsettias can be a worthy investment. “They have beautiful foliage,” Neal said. Poinsettias are often used for Christmas displays in churches. “We’ve always used poinsettias,” said Nancy Sand, pastoral associate for the Catholic parishes of St. Paul Catholic Church, Sacred Heart Church and Christ the King University Parish. “I’ve been here 28 years, and they’ve been here as long as I can remember... https://www.thepostathens.com/article/2018/12/poinsettias-holiday-flower-florist-athens
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.
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.

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
