Trio decorate Dursley with 3,500 knitted flowers - South Cotswolds GazetteWednesday, March 31, 2021
Saturday, donated by knitters from as far and wide as Yorkshire, Reading and Durham. Angela White and town councilors Tyler White and Mandy Woodward appealed for knitted, crocheted, and felt flowers after taking down the Christmas lights in January. They were met with a huge response from Dursley residents, 1st Dursley Scouts, Dursley Lions and Lionesses and Henlow Court Care Home, as well as from creatives around England. “We wanted something to brighten up Dursley and we thought that it would help people in lockdown because the winter lockdown seems to have been worse for people,” said Cllr Woodward, who is a member of the Dursley Festive Committee with Cllr White and Ms White. Flower-makers had until mid-March to send in their creations, which were hung on trees, signs and bollards and placed in flower pots around Dursley. “The reaction has been brilliant. When we were putting them up on Saturday one lady came over to us and said ‘walking up through town has made me smile and I haven’t smiled in a long time,’ so that was really nice,” said Cllr Woodward. “We had another lady with her toddler who was so exc... https://www.gazetteseries.co.uk/news/19197160.trio-decorate-dursley-3-500-knitted-flowers/

Okanagan florists busy during pandemic, some busier than ever | iNFOnews | Thompson-Okanagan's News Source - iNFOnewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
COVID-19 pandemic has brought hard times onto some local businesses, Okanagan flower shops are busy — some say even busier than ever. The period around Easter and Mother’s Day is typically busy for florists, and despite current circumstances, this year is no exception. At Burnett’s Florist in Kelowna, business has been steady. “Our Easter was more busy than it usually is, and we’re hoping Mother’s Day is the same," florist Galena Clancy said. Kelowna’s Funky Petals, Harris Flower Shop in Vernon and Newell Flower Shop in Kamloops are all busy during the pandemic as well. "I think it's mostly because people are kind of communicating from a distance with flowers," Clancy said. Harris Flower Shop's Brenda Gedaschke says that many of her customers want to send flowers for birthdays, or just to cheer people up. Florists have shifted to accommodate current public health orders, offering online ordering and contactless delivery. Harris Flower Shop has even installed an honour bar outside their store, where customers can pick up arrangements and leave money in a locked collection box. “(The honour bar) has been spectacularly well received,” said Gedaschke, adding that there has only been one customer who didn’t leave enough money for their bouquet. The real challenge during the pandemic has been getting flowers from suppliers, Gedaschke said. "At this point everything is limited,” she said. “A lot of the import stuff, up until recently,... https://infotel.ca/newsitem/okanagan-florists-busy-during-pandemic-some-busier-than-ever/it72772

Country in Bloom budding with business confidence, despite COVID-19 - Sherwood Park NewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
Country in Bloom, a floral shop and home decor store, which opened in November. Owner Karlee Smith previously worked in the wedding industry as a wedding coordinator and florist. Her intention was to have a pop-up shop for two months to test the waters, but with 95 per cent of its Christmas stock sold, her customers have given her the support to press forward for another six months. “I was super-nervous to open. We didn’t know what restrictions would come, when they would happen, or when things would change, so it was extremely nerve-wracking,” Smith told The News. “But I thought amidst the pandemic, why not take the plunge? I thought, let’s take a chance and see where I can go from here.” Her business partner is her mother-in-law, Sandra Lavorato Hipkin, who comes with the local fame of running Mulberry Manor, a home-based giftware and home decor business that was set up in her basement in the rural county.
