Juan Mata Commemorates the Flowers of Manchester on the 60th Anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster
IS/GettyImagesManchester United ran out 2-0 winners against David Wagner's Terriers with goals coming from Romelu Lukaku and new marquee signing Alexis Sanchez.Following the victory, in his weekly blog, Juan Mata dedicated the victory to the victims of the air crash and their families, writing: "When you have a painful defeat like the one we had by mid-week in London, against Tottenham, all you want is for the next game to start as soon as possible. "We needed to show the character of the team and to react in front of our fans in order to go back to the winning path. And so we did. I think it was a complete performance, one of those days when the game is under your control, and we managed to close it in time to add the three points. I hope we can do the same against Newcastle this coming weekend. "We really enjoyed ourselves on the pitch, especially during the second half, and eventually we could dedicate the victory to the victims (and their families) of that fateful day in Munich."PAUL ELLIS/GettyImagesThe Spanish midfielder went on to memorialise those who had their live affected by the Munich air disaster. "But the day that is absolutely shown in red on this week’s calendar is this Tuesday, a day that marks the 60th anniversary of the air disaster," Mata wrote. "As I said above in the headline, the victims will never be forgotten, they will always be remembered and will be a part of United’s history forever. The passion, determination and courage shown by the club to carry on in those horrible moments have left an indelible mark forever."The “Flowers of Manchester” will always be with us. By the way, the minute of silence before our game was simply spectacular… It is because of this...Feb 8, 2018
A florist's advice for saving money on flowers
Chris Drummond, president-elect of the SAF in Alexandria, Va., says consumers shouldn't be embarrassed if they have questions. "There are so many hundreds of varieties of flowers. Even me, in the business, every year I find something I've never seen before," he said. "We certainly expect our consumers not to know about certain varieties. We expect you to have questions."It's helpful to understand, that pricing is not standardized in the floral industry, says Kayle Walker Burns, owner of Petal and Bean Floral & Event Planning in Breckenridge, Colo. What one florist charges likely is different from other florists, and you also can expect differences if you buy flowers at a grocery store, online or from a local florist.We asked professional florists to share their top tips for buying bouquets and other items during flower-centric holidays and events.Preorder for your best chance to get what you want.According to the Society of American Florists, the ideal window for preordering flowers is three to 10 days. Preordering helps florists make sure they have the right and freshest flowers for the consumers - and ensure first availability. The closer you purchase flowers to the holiday, the greater chance of availability and the price may be affected. Valentine's Day is on a Wednesday this year, so florists expect more flower pur...

This Week in the Garden: Magnolias are in full bloom
It has an unusually dark burgundy 6-inches wide flower with an elegant tulip shape. Flowers appear before the leaves emerge.“Alexandrina” has huge purple pink flowers with white interiors. It is a multi-stemmed deciduous tree with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It was introduced in France around 1831.“Elizabeth” produces luminous, pale yellow, cup-shaped flowers to 6” across that glow on the bare branches in late spring. It will become a large tree, to 30-feet high by 15-feet to 30-feet wide.“Vulcan” produces, in early spring, rich, ruby-red blossoms that are 10-inches to 12-inches across, beginning at a young age. The form is slender and elegant, vigorous, to 15-feet tall and 10-feet wide.M. liliflora “Nigra” is a compact, rounded, shrubby tree that matures to 8- to 12-feet tall and as wide. Each lily-shaped flower has six (sometimes seven) purple petals with white insides (petals are 3- to 4-inches long).Magnolia stellata (Star Magnolia) produces flowers that are quite unlike those of M. soulaneana types. The slightly fragrant white or pink flowers, with strappy petals that open to resemble stars, are produced prolifically in late winter. The tree blooms quite early in winter so it is best to plant where you can see the flowers from inside your home. It grows only to about 10-feet and twice as wide, usually with a multi-stemmed shrubby form.AdvertisementMagnolias are easy care plants with no serious pests or diseases but they do have fleshy roots that resent being transplanted from their original spot, so site carefully and allow for future growth. The larger-growing specimens show up best when the background highlights the flowers and big fuzzy buds as well as the picturesque gray limbs. Don’t plant other smaller plants, like annuals or perennials, under them since any digging will disturb those sensitive roots. They like soil that is neutral to slightly acid, amended with lots of organic matter at planting, and slow release fertilizer if growth is weak or sparse. Provide good drainage and full sun for best health, growth and bloom. Young trees need regular irrigation during our dry seasons but the trees become more drought-resistant as they mature.Garden tips are provided courtesy of horticulturist Sharon Hull of the San Lorenzo Garden Center.

Florists Prep For Inspiring Day In Omaha
The Society of American FloristsPosted: Monday, January 8, 2018 at 3:42PM EST
ALEXANDRIA, VA — It's been more than two years since Rhonda Bullington attended SAF's 1-Day Profit Blast in Des Moines, an experience that expanded her skill-set and provided a boost in business. When the owner of Loess Hills Floral Studio in Council Bluffs, Iowa, saw the educational program is next headed to Omaha, Nebraska — a mere six miles away — she pounced on the opportunity.
"I got a lot out of the program the first time, both during the sessions and the networking opportunities in between," she said.
On Sunday, January 14, Bullington will be sitting front row and center with another employee in tow. SAF's first event of 2018 combines a blend of favorites and new presentations. Bullington said she's especially interested to hear headliner Laura Daluga, AIFD, discuss ways to connect with millennials.
"My business is largely weddings, so millennials are my clients," she explained.
First-time Profit Blast attendee Jack Fabbrini is ready to "soak it all in." ... (PerishableNews )
