GREENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers
Garden. This title is considered equal parts resource and inspiration for many of the growers who call themselves farmer-florists today.
In Canada, Melanie Harrington established Dahlia May Flower Farms on her family farm in Trenton, Ontario after reading Benzakein’s book and deciding to take a workshop on Floret Farm in Washington. With over 60,000 Instagram followers (@dahliamayflowerfarm), Harrington has no problem marketing her sustainably grown, unique and often heirloom varieties from her roadside stand to local florists.
The beauty of flowers, of course, is that they sell themselves. “A lot of trends from the local-food movement are definitely spilling over”, Melanie told Ben when he dropped by the farm where she now produces row upon row of colourful flowers for cutting. “A handful of commercial greenhouses in the Niagara area have also been switched over to marijuana production, which puts a crunch on supply of greenhouse space. There’s a lot of trends coming together, but I’m just happy to focus on what I enjoy doing – being creative and growing beautiful flowers.”
Located in Thornhill Ontario, Antonio Valente is a perfect example of how the farmer-florist trend is taking hold even in more urban environments. Valente was a substitute teacher with a passion for flowers when he started selling cut flowers from the beds he kept in his parent’s backyard.
Also marketing himself through Instagram, where he posts rich photography from his garden as well as how-to videos at @antonionvalenteflowers, he recently took over his parent’s half-acre property and still can’t grow enough to meet demand. “I’m competing with larger growers who are producing acres of flowers, so I grow varieties that a florist wouldn’t typically find from a wholesaler, heirlooms such as dahlias, Gerrie Hoek and Pam Howden, and foxglove Sutton’s apricot. This allows me to... (EENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers)Sep 10, 2018
Discover 6 great flowering shrubs for shade
Lavalamp Flare Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata “Kolmavesu”): An adaptable and petite hydrangea that’s hardy to -40 degrees F, Lavalamp Flare produces big, conical flower clusters that are white and age to a brilliant pink. Each upright flower panicle can grow up to 16 inches long. With a mature height of just 2 to 3 feet, that means over half of the plant’s height is flowers. It’s perfect for smaller yards and gardens with limited sun. Another wonderful shade-loving hydrangea with no-fail blooms is the oak leaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia).
Japanese Andromeda (Pieris japonica): This broad-leaved evergreen shrub produces panicles of small, white, bell-shaped flowers in the spring. It’s a great early forage plant for many species of bees. Fully hardy here in Western Pennsylvania, Japanese andromeda prefers slightly acidic soil and some protection from heavy winter winds. The drooping clusters of flowers occur on shrubs that reach about 8 feet tall at maturity, though some dwarf cultivars do exist. There are also some varieties with pink flowers and foliage, too. As an added bonus, Japanese andromeda is typically deer resistant.
Compact Korean Azalea (Azalea yedoenese var. poukhanense “Compacta”): This semi-evergreen, compact azalea seldom requires pruning and produces lavender-pink flowers in the spring. It’s perfect for woodland gardens and shady beds. At full maturity, this slow-growing azalea reaches just 3 feet tall and spreads about 5 feet wide. Its an easy-care flowering shrub for the shade. Unfortunately, the deer do favor it (along with other azaleas), but if you have space for this beauty, I highly recommend it.
Mountain laurel (Kalimia latifolia): If you’re looking for a great North American native flowering shrub to tuck into a shady spot, mountain laurel is a beautiful option. This evergreen shrub has shiny green leaves that are topped with clusters of cup-shaped flowers in the mid-spring. Though some sources tout it as being deer resistant, mountain laurel is a favorite of the deer in my garden, so plant it with caution. Mountain laurel is the state flower of Pennsylvania, and most varieties can reach up to 10 feet in height, though they are fairly slow growers. There are many cultivars of this shrub that come in a wide range of flower colors but all prefer to grow in shady conditions with slightly acidic soil.
Japanese Kerria (Kerria japonica): Another Asian flowering shrub that’s perfectly suited to shade gardens, kerria is... (scover 6 great flowering shrubs for shade)Sep 10, 2018

Macys Day Parade on the West Coast Rose Parade CEO says change is coming (but it doesnt involve balloons)
Sierra Madre, La Cañada Flintridge and South Pasadena — will continue.
‘Assembled in silos’
A former Macy’s executive, Amy Kule, was brought on to lead the newly created Parade Development Office. Eads said the reorganization of the tournament’s hierarchy allows for better collaboration, planning and strategy between the 935 tournament volunteers who work year-round in 31 specialized committees.
“When all the different elements were being assembled in silos, it all came together in the end, and what we had was what we had,” he said. “Now we’re trying to strategically say, ‘What do we want this parade to look like?’”
Among the considerations are things like the ratio of commercial to noncommercial floats, the total number of floats (there’s usually about 45) and the number of equestrian units (usually around 20) and bands (another 20) compared to the number of floats.
Eads is sure about one thing though: He wants to create more long-lasting relationships with float sponsors. He points to Cal Poly Universities as an example. The public institutions have had a float in the parade for the last seven decades.
Typically each year, there are si... (039;Macy's Day Parade on the West Coast?' Rose Parade CEO says change is coming (but it do)
