Spring gardening provides inspiration - Renton Reporter
In Holland the celebration of spring means potted bulbs are displayed in window boxes, public and private gardens and tiny bulbs are even set into bird’s nest that are then wired onto the branches of street trees and public spaces. Nobody celebrates spring like the Dutch – but we can try.

Steal from the French: Plan for pools of pastel colors
Monet painted soft pinks, purples and blue color tones in his famous water colors and garden scenes and the highly developed artistic sense of the average French citizen means that even home gardeners pay attention to color echoes, color groupings and color families. You can make like Monet and float some hellebore blossoms in your bird bath or as a table centerpiece (hellebore blooms closely resemble Monet’s water lilies) or take a cue from the French paint box and plant a container or garden bed in ribbons of pastel colors. Think cool, blue delphiniums, pink phlox and lavender petunias with accents of white or purple. Yes you are painting with flowers and every gardener is an artist with a trowel.

Steal from the Italians: Formal Forms
Mama Mia! You won’t see bountiful blooms in a traditional Italian garden as lack of water has taught Mediterranean gardeners to use form and symmetry to create the living masterpieces of classic garden design. In your own garden use balance and symmetry to add a more formal look to the front of a house with matching urns or container gardens. Do not try to grow the tall and narrow Italian cypress in our wet winter climate. Instead substitute the tall and skinny Ilex ‘Sky Pencil’ to create exclamation points in the landscape or to fill a classic terra cotta container with evergreen form.

Brexit could wilt huge Dutch flower trade - Capital FM Kenya
Yme Pasma, chief operating officer for Royal Flora Holland, keeps a watchful eye as workers sort stems arriving from all over the world before sending them off to destinations across Europe.
But this well-oiled operation, where robotic efficiency meets a riot of colour and fragrance, is facing a challenge that could make the hardiest bloom wilt: Brexit.
“We are preparing for all kind of disturbances along the way,” Pasma told AFP at the huge warehouse in Aalsmeer, near Amsterdam. “The worst is a hard Brexit and we are preparing for that as well.”
The Netherlands has long been famous for tulips, and flowers remain a vital part of the Dutch economy, with seven billion euros ($8 billion) a year in sales.
Britain is the third largest market for the Netherlands’ flower export business, after Germany and France, accounting for 850 million euros.
As it is now, flowers are flown in from around the world before being sent seamlessly to Britain or other parts of the European Union’s single market.

The flowers man: Lakeline Oaks resident surprises ladies with flowers every week - Hillcountrynews
He's been on the Eiffel Tower, the Tower of London and through the Chunnel. He's seen the tulips in Holland, he's seen the red brick streets of New Delhi, India and spent five years of his life in Germany.
"I love people. I love people," he said, with rising enthusiasm. "I want everybody to be my friend. I know that's impossible, but I love people. That's one thing my wife did, too. She was a wonderful woman. I feel blessed, I've lived a great life."
Carver's goal is to complete a full circuit of giving flowers to every lady at Lakeline Oaks within a year and a half. One thing is for sure, he said, he's going to keep giving away flowers as long as he is alive and able.

Seasonal Flowers for Fall and Winter - Columbus Monthly
Mother Nature loves you not: There are a few caveats to finding this foliage.
"Between the growers in California, Holland and South America, many flowers that were once seasonal are available almost year-round," says florist Kim Meacham. "Even some of those, when ordered off-season, are expensive and the quality isn't reliable, so we always make that [clear] to couples and have a few backup options available."
Meacham's the owner of The Paper Daisy Flower Boutique in the Short North, beloved for its cozy but cosmopolitan style-and its canine team member, Melvin Stanley.
"He has quite a few customers who stop in just to see him," Meacham says. "He obviously loves all flowers like the rest of us, but his favorites are the pet-friendly varieties like roses, orchids and snapdragons."
Professionals like Meacham know the rules of horticulture-from finding the best bloom for your Best Dog or knowing which plants are available when, without costing you an arm and a leg (or those dream heels).
If visions of sun-kissed peonies and peach-colored blooms dance in your head, Meacham and Kasey Conyers of Orchard Lane Flowers (another Central Ohio weddings mainstay, located in Clintonville) have suggestions for making floral selections that are right for the season, but still accomplish the look you're dreaming of.
Instead of: Peonies
Peonies were once only available for a short time in the spring. Now, thanks to Ala... Nov 28, 2018
Gardening: Amaryllis is a beautiful winter flower for the Prairies - Saskatoon Star-Phoenix
A recent trip to the grocery store surprised me with a huge display of boxed Amaryllis bulbs shipped directly from Holland at the entrance to the store. These colourful boxes of bulbs promised white, red, pink or bicolour blooms by Christmas time. It was difficult to decide on one particular colour so I gave in to my hoarding tendencies and purchased one of each. The Amaryllis with which we are most familiar is a common houseplant around Christmas time. The genus (Hippeastrum), native to South America, consists of around 90 species and more than 600 hybrids and cultivars of perennial herbaceous bulbous plants. There is a genus Amaryllis, however. Amaryllis belladonna refers to a plant originating in the Western Cape region of South Africa that has a lily-like flower and growth habit and is commonly referred to as belladonna lily, Jersey lily or naked lady. There has been a lot of discussion among botanists regarding the naming of Amaryllis and Hippeastrum. This article refers to the Hippeastrum plant that is familiar to most of us as ‘amaryllis.' Amaryllis bulbs are usually purchased in the fall and produce beautiful large blooms around Christmas time. Bulbs can vary in size from five to 10 centimetres, while the flowers can range from 10 to ... Nov 28, 2018
