How two sisters formed Laurel Floral out of a backyard - Suffolk TimesTuesday, September 24, 2019
Outside her home on Delmar Lane in Laurel, Laura Carrillo, 31, snags a red rose from a storage shed in her backyard. She brings it inside and places it in a glass vase brimming with blossoming red and pink roses. She ties a red ribbon around the bouquet and snaps a photo with her phone. About an hour later, in the home across the street, sister Christi Carrillo, 28, uploads that photo to the duo’s Instagram account, @LaurelFloralDesign. It’s just a typical day for the Carrillo sisters.In early February, the sisters registered the name of their flower catering business, Laurel Floral Design, in Suffolk County. The “shop” — which operates out of Laura’s backyard – had already catered birthday parties, weddings and baby showers prior to the registration.Instagram is where Christi receives most requests for bouquets. It’s ideal for a company hoping to cater to a younger demographic, she said.“A lot of it comes from Instagram, and a lot of people that we know, too, just from... https://suffolktimes.timesreview.com/2019/03/two-sisters-formed-laurel-floral-backyard/
Floral artisans re-create de Young Museum's works with flowers - San Francisco ChronicleWednesday, March 14, 2018
Flowers flow through Joan McLellan Tayler’s blood. She was born that way, a child of the McLellan flower empire that grew orchids on the Peninsula. As a girl attending the Katherine Delmar Burke School in Pacific Heights, McLellan Tayler would accompany her father to the San Francisco Flower Mart in the predawn hours to shop the floral vendors. At nearly 90 years old, McLellan Tayler regularly shops the Flower Mart, as she did last week while preparing her annual floral entry into the de Young Museum “Bouquet to Arts” exhibition.For the past 34 years, select florists and floral artisans have been invited to re-create pieces from the de Young’s collection of artwork — with flowers. One hundred and 20 (give or take) “exhibitors” select or are assigned one piece of artwork, including the really modern stuff like video installations, and interpret it with flora and fauna. The fragrant results remain on display throughout the museum for a single week. And then, for the most part, they die.“I got my first choice,” McLellan Tayler said of the artwork she’d chosen to re-create with flowers. She has participated in 32 of the 34 “Bouquets to Art” exhibitions, and she fully...
Flamenco Flowers Is Now Open in the Loop - Riverfront Times (blog)Tuesday, July 18, 2017
Heit knew exactly what she needed to do: She decided to buy the shop.Earlier this month, Heit reopened the small storefront as Flamenco Flowers & Sweets(6346 Delmar Boulevard, University City). Her shop is more single-minded: Gone are the dog balloons and quirky candles that previously animated Fleur de Lou. In their place: a beautifully simple space that focuses on flowers and plants, with a few prepackaged kosher chocolates to boot. Heit is a one-woman show. She greets customers at the door and personally designs all the flowers, with striking designs that seem completely at home in the brick-walled space. She's responsible for the store's lushly romantic look — and even wired the pipe-based lamps that light it. It is her baby, through and through. "I've been thinking about all of this for a long, long time," she confides.Indeed, for Heit, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, the store is the promised answer to a long-ago dream. "I walked into a floral shop in Russia and said, 'This is exactly what I want,'" she recalls. "That was 27 years ago."click to enlarge

Meet your neighborhood florist, Urban Buds: City Grown Flowers - St. Louis MagazineSunday, July 05, 2020
Karen “Mimo” Davis was a 31-year-old social worker, living in New York City, when her mother and stepfather asked her to look after their greenhouse in 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.”
BACK IN TIME: Flowers by Telegraph in Englewood, 1933 - Pascack Press & Northern Valley PressSunday, July 05, 2020
Printed in the Brooklyn Times Union newspaper 150 years ago, a classified from 1870 advertises property for sale in Tenafly.

For this reason, the ads typically mentioned the proximity of the railroad station. This house had nine rooms, stable, outbuildings and fruit trees on 5 acres. The cost to buy: $9,000. ... https://thepressgroup.net/back-in-time-flowers-by-telegraph-in-englewood-1933/
