How does Encore Boston Harbor keep its flowers so fresh? Meet the shrub whisperer - The Boston Globe
AdvertisementThey purchase flowers about a year in advance and work with a range of vendors to bring plants to bloom: seed companies, propagators, and growers.“None of these are flowers that you can just go buy off the shelf somewhere,” he said in the Encore Boston Harbor lobby not far from some of his workers, who were adding fresh yellow and orange arrangements. “You start talking about 4,000 flowers every two weeks — there are not a lot of places that can do that.”Walking through the casino’s front entrance, Chadwick explains the thinking behind the thick-leaf blend of yew and Japanese white pine nearby (a pleasant look for people being dropped off on one side; a protection for outdoor diners at the fancy Sinatra restaurant from the glare of headlights on the other).Brilliant floral beds formed a carpet around a trio of sculptures.(David L. Ryan/Globe Staff)The son of a landscape designer and a landscape installer, Chadwick regales you with the story of some of the 89 Scotch pines, all dug up in far-flung places, trucked to Everett and placed just so for the right Wynn Resorts look. Chadwick speaks with joy about the weeping cherries and Taylor junipers, about how he has a desk, but “most of the time, my office is out here.”He tells you about tree number one, an autumn splendor maple, that stands as a marker of the site’s transformation from a polluted former Monsanto chemical factory to a high-end casino resort. (He doesn’t mention the Exelon power station that is still across the street.)AdvertisementHe explains how to build a six-and-a-half-acre park after cleaning up loads of toxic waste: planting the trees, then putting in the walkways, layering in shrubs, and installing irrigation.And he describes the awe he feels seeing the property filled with people, finding serenity in the natural landscape he helped create.He encourages you to walk the property.And so you find your way to the harborwalk near the river and you look toward Boston. You can’t even tell you’re standing right next to a casino, with all its beeping and flashing slots, hoots and hollers at the table games, money lost and won — but mostly lost — in an instant.You can’t tell you’re near a hulking power plant, with its towering smokestacks.p class="paragrap...

New Canaan Florist Brings Local Charm, Quality To New Location - New Canaan, CT Patch
According to Pippitt, those orders are usually placed six months to a year in advance and are a mix of local and non-local ceremonies. "It takes you days, sometimes weeks to prepare for a wedding," Pippitt said. "It could be in New York City, or it could be in Westport or at Waveny." The store recently made it through Valentine's Day, one of it's busiest times of the year, and is gearing up for its biggest rush in May for Mother's Day. "We make deliveries for Mother's Day all week long, because people might want their mom to have it on Wednesday or Friday instead of Sunday," Pippitt said, "so volume-wise it's just a busy week." Amid that rush however, Pippitt finds constant reminders of his favorite part of the job: the joy his flowers bring to customers. "When you're giving flowers, it's usually from a husband to a wife or a daughter to a mom, whatever the occasion may be. People are always smiling when they receive a floral arrangement," Pippitt said. "That's my favorite part when we deliver flowers: people are always happy."

Denver parks’ flowers are three weeks behind after rough spring storms - The Denver Post
Fortunately, the city operates a greenhouse near the Denver Zoo. City horticulturists design park garden plantings a year in advance. Once designs are reviewed and approved, the horticulturists grow the plants in the greenhouse.

Increasingly, city horticulturists propagate fewer annuals and more perennials, native plants, xeric plants and ornamental grasses for gardens in the city’s parks.
“We’re starting to put perennials in all of our gardens. It’s happening everywhere. We’re cutting costs of growing annuals every year and the labor of re-planting annuals and then pulling them out at the end of the season,” Lehman said. “But we’re also providing plants for pollinators and more year-round interest and wildlife habitat and using less water.”
Lehman emphasized that the city’s parks cultivate much more than natural beauty.
“We work with aesthetics, obviously, but there are so many reasons to have gardens in our parks,” she said. “So many studies show that green spaces are so good for the mind and spirit and overall well-being, so keeping people healthy in the city is a big part of it.”
Toward that end, the city of Denver participates in the National Recreation and Park Association’s 10- Minute Walk Campaign.
“We started at the beginning of the campaign. We’re working so hard to make sure everyone has the ability to enjoy a beautiful space within a 10-minute walk of home,” Lehman said. “We’re plotting out spaces, and this is one of the big things we have in our two-year plan. We all feel it’s important for everyone to be able to enjoy a green space nearby.”
For Lehman and her crew, gardening chores never end.
“There’s a lot going on. I don’t know if people realize ... May 31, 2019
