Lavender Green Flowers: The British florist of choice for weddings and events - ITCMTuesday, August 29, 2017
Venues include the British Museum, Claridges, The Berkeley, The Connaught, Coworth Park, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, The Langham Hotel, The National Gallery, The Natural History Museum, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, The V&A, The Wallace Collection, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle. They also create flowers on behalf of 60-100 discerning brides every year. 2017 has been the busiest year yet, with a huge influx of high profile weddings and outdoor events throughout the summer season. Working at The RHS, Chelsea Flower Show, Aegon Championships, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, they put the floral designs on the central stage, going above and beyond to deliver stand-out spectacles. (Lavender Green Flowers place a significant amount of emphasis on the whole picture, considering and often advising on every other element of an event that becomes important, such as lighting, furniture and even food.) From the initial brief and design process through to the creation and subsequent delivery, clients know that they can rely on Lavender Green Flowers’ highly inventive, hard-working and experienced team. As is often the case, nothing is ever out-sourced meaning installations are slick and efficient. The designers, florists and installers are all part of the Lavender Green Flowers’ family, and they therefore share the same passion and enthusiasm for the perfect execution of every job. Barnes says, “I was not interested in learning how to be a florist. I was interested in learning how to sell amazing flowers and how to create breath-taking flower displays. I have always wanted to be the very best I can possibly be at whatever I do, and so failure was not an option. It is incredible to make money out of a low margin product. You need the tenacity of a limpet, self-belief, a great team of kindred spirits and to enjoy the experience… plus an awful lot of luck!”...

Marrazzo's Florist To Move If LMT Development Approved: Report - Patch.comSunday, February 09, 2020
LOWER MAKEFIELD TOWNSHIP, PA — Marrazzo's Manor Lane florists, a fixture in Lower Makefield, will move, but stay open, if a new residential development at its current site is approved. The Intelligencer reports that developer Cedar Crossing Investors is seeking variances to build 11 homes on about three acres of land at Marrazzo's current location, at Yardley-Morrisville and Pine Grove roads. The paper writes that the two-story townhouses would be about 2,800-2,900 square feet, with four bedrooms, according to plans filed with Lower Makefield Township. The development would be at the site of the third-generation Marrazzo's, which was established in 1947 in the Manor Lane section of Morrisville. It moved to its current location, the site of an existing nursery, in 1984, according to the paper. Mike Marrazzo told The Intelligencer that there's a deal in place to sell the land. If Lower Makefield approves the development, the family business will relocate nearby, he said. "Once we know where this is going, then we're going to try to look fo... https://patch.com/pennsylvania/yardley/marrazos-florist-move-if-lmt-development-approved-report

Hillier Nurseries' history inspires display for Chelsea Flower Show - Daily EchoSunday, February 09, 2020
Visitors to the exhibit will approach via a replica of the original Hillier shop in Winchester, which was bought in 1864. They will be transported back to the company’s beginnings as a single florist’s shop and a small patch of nursery land. Beyond the shop, visitors will discover a large warden with a stone-walled walkway, taking them on a journey through semi-mature trees, large shrubs and colourful herbaceous planting schemes. The walkway will end at a water feature. Lilly Gomm will join the team as designer for the second year running. She made her Chelsea debut with Hillier in 2019, winning gold. She said: “It is an absolute honour to be working with Hillier again, particularly this year as the company celebrates its history with its exhibit. The design this year is intended to capture the essence of Hillier, stand out and be memorable, at the same time as featuring the detailed stunning planting and variety that Hillier is known for.” The garden will feature 21 mature trees as well as Many of the plants grown on the Hampshire nursery and available in its 17 Hillier Garden Centres, which include branches at Winchester and Three Legged Cross.

Muncie Origins: Normandy Flower Shop continues family florist tradition - Ball State Daily NewsSunday, February 09, 2020
Judy Benken, owner of Normandy Flower Shop, can be found in this room taking orders, making flower arrangements and calling suppliers. As a third-generation florist, Benken isn’t new to the flower business. She said she grew up in her father’s flower shop because it was attached to their house, and “there wasn’t any getting away from it.” “I probably started working when I was around 12 [doing simple little things],” Benken said. “When I started [delivering flowers] after school, I was 16.”After Benken moved from Muncie to Ohio with her husband, she said, she thought she had left the flower business behind her. However, once the holidays rolled around, Benken said, she found herself working for a flower shop in Ohio because she missed the “chaos and crazy” of the season. Although Benken and her husband started their family in Ohio, they wanted their children to grow up in Muncie. In 1982, the Normandy Flower Shop, which was established in downtown Muncie in the 1940s, came up for sale. The Benkens decided to make the shop their own.“It was the [floral] business that I knew,” Benken said. “I wasn’t making much of a living working for other people. It was [my husband’s] idea to buy the flower shop. I just wanted to come home.”At the time she opened N... https://www.ballstatedaily.com/article/2020/02/daily-lifestyles-normandy-flower-shop
