Flower girl - Boothbay RegisterTuesday, September 26, 2017
Sarah Lutte is growing flowers.Lutte and her husband Mark have started a flower farm in Farmingdale, and their flowers are being distributed in Boothbay Harbor and Wiscasset, to Boothbay Region Greenhouses, Water Lily Flowers and Gifts, and through Lutte's mother, Sally Bullard, owner of A Maine Wedding.Growing flowers is a labor of love for the Luttes, and that, along with producing pork and poultry, is just a part of how they spend their days. Both work at full-time jobs outside their farm, and they have two young children, Henry and Polly.Lutte has been a fundraiser for the Nature Conservancy for 12 years, beginning in Washington, D.C., and now in Brunswick.Lutte, who grew up in East Boothbay and Damariscotta, and her husband, who grew up in New Harbor, met while attending Lincoln Academy in Newcastle. They were living in Washington D.C. when they started talking about moving back to Maine in 2008. “My goal was always to have horses,” Lutte said. They found the perfect place in 2009, in Farmingdale.Thanks to an old sign that read “Lay Z Acres,” that they found in the barn on the property, they had a name for their farm. It's called Lazy Acres. http://www.boothbayregister.com/article/flower-girl/91929?source%3Dmp

She has lived in the U.S. for 37 years, and Maine for 23 years.Before coming to Wiscasset, Deirkrikorian lived in Rockland and Warren, working in flower shops and plant nurseries, most recently for five years at Moose Crossing Garden Center in Waldoboro. “House plants are my passion,” she said. “Last season at Moose Crossing I decided it was time to make a change. It's a big step, but I feel that I'm ready.”She decided that the only way to find out was to jump in feet first. She was walking around town in Wiscasset this past fall, and saw the 'for rent' sign on the door at 52 Water Street. “I called the number and took that next step.”The shop has been open since mid-November. Deirkrikorian said that business was a little slow over the winter. “But I started... http://www.boothbayregister.com/article/water-lily-flowers-and-gifts-wiscasset/68438

10 Best Spring Flowers to Plant of Display - Gotham MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
Tulips grow best with full or afternoon sun and water weekly. The tulip planting process begins in November, so if you want a simple but beautiful display, your best bet is to stop by your nearest florist.DaffodilsDaffodils are an easy perennial flower grown in most regions of North America, excepting the hottest and most humid. If planting, begin in the winter so blooms can arrive at the start of spring. Water when the weather is dry. If kept in a vase, they should be kept alone, as their stems release a liquid that can wilt other flowers. We recommend a bouquet of golden ducat, petit four and rip van winkle - all types of daffodils.HyacinthsKnown for their intense fragrance and bright colors, Hyacinths are the perfect spring flower. They do well in full sun and require frequent watering if there's no regular rain. They come in a wide variety of colors, from Blue Jacket, to blue-purple, Carnegie, pure white, City of Haarlem, buttery yellow, Delft Blue, soft blue, Jan Bos and fuchsia.ForsythiaBelonging to the olive family, Forsythia are low-maintenance flowering shrubs that grow quickly in an upright, arching form. They can grow to be up to 10 feet tall, so if planting, choose your spot wisely. Forsythia grow best with at least six hours of direct sun and moderately moist soil, so only water if experiencing a drought.RhododendronRhododendrons are often tubular, funnel or bell-shaped and very fragrant. These beauties do well in climates with adequate rainfall and moist springs and summers, so water pretty frequently if you live in a dry area. Place your rhododendrons in a slightly shaded area, but avoid deep shade or full sun.See also: The 5 Best Yoga Mats to Unroll in 2021PeoniesPeonies typically loom from late spring to early summer, depending on your location and variety.

Bloomin’ good: Clinton florist business is awards finalist - 100 Mile House Free PressWednesday, March 31, 2021
I’m still trying to make heads or tails out of it. I’ve never been very good at honouring myself, but I’m very proud, and very thankful, to whoever nominated me.”Lawrence began working at a florist shop in Prince Rupert when she was 14, and continued until she went off to college for theatre school. At that point, she put flowers aside, but found they kept coming back to her: “I did my own wedding flowers, and flowers for friends.” Finally, at her mother’s encouragement, she decided to go for it, and Bubbles’ Blossom Design was born in time for Mother’s Day 2018.When Lawrence and her husband Jordan moved to Clinton in October 2016, she realized a florist shop was something the area needed.“At first I thought I’d research it for a couple of years, see how it goes, see how much interest there was, but then I decided just to jump in and do it. If an opportunity comes along you jump in with both feet.”READ MORE: Clinton hires new Chief Administrative OfficerShe says that the overhead was low: “I bought a used cooler and a couple of buckets, so it was an easy thing to do.” Until recently she worked out of her kitchen and dining-room, but last year an extension was added to the back of their house at the corner of Dewdney Avenue and Cariboo Highway for a small storefront.Lawrence nearly sold out of flowers that first Mother’s Day, and she says that the support from the community has been incredible. “It was a great initial reception, and I have the best customers. It was all by word of mouth and Facebook.”The business has since expanded beyond Clinton, with Lawrence delivering orders to Cache Creek and Ashcroft.“My end goal is to have ... https://www.100milefreepress.net/news/bloomin-good-clinton-florist-business-is-awards-finalist/
