O&J Growers “These guys are all local growers; they have their own farms. We like to buy as much local as possible. I like protea, they’re really long-lasting. You can put them with greenery so it feels a little holiday but not too much. They can last one and a half to two weeks in your house. I’m looking for ones that look the freshest, not too open, not too closed,” says Renna. Southern California Flower Market Stall 34FleuraMetz“It’s very high quality; they’re imported but not all of it,” says Renna. “There’s more unique stuff, more variety here. They are one of the biggest vendors, so they get stuff from all over the world. It’s in season somewhere.” Southern California Flower Market Stall 32

What's that smell? Flower town's shift to pot creates stink
This picturesque coastal town cradled by mountains and sandy shores is a scene out of a Southern California postcard. Residents of Carpinteria say they feel lucky to live in what they consider a slice of paradise.
But change is in the air. And sometimes, they say, it stinks.
That's because marijuana has become a new crop of choice in the farmlands surrounding this tight-knit community of 14,000, which has long helped fuel the U.S. cut flower industry.
Residents say a thick, skunk-like odor from the marijuana plants settles over the valley in the evenings and before dawn. To keep out t... Apr 13, 2017
Your chance to take a rare peek inside Southern California's flower farms
The Carpinteria Greenhouse and Nursery Tour on April 1 can’t help but be a showy affair — we’re talking bajillions of beautiful blooms that are normally off limits to visitors, in one of the nation’s most productive flower-growing regions.But the farmers have a deeper message for the thousands who come to ogle the fields of lilies, Gerbera daisies and other brilliant stems: Look for the orange and blue “CA grown” stickers when you purchase your bouquets.“We’re trying to get people to be more discerning,” said Kasey Cronquist, head of the California Cut Flower Commission. “Historically, in the wholesale flower business, a rose is a rose is a rose, but not anymore….Now you need to ask, ‘Where did this rose come from?’ ”Flower farms have become a rarity in the United States, with about 80% of cut blooms imported from other countries, primarily in South America, Cronquist said.Only about a dozen farms in the United States (including one in Carpinteria) still grow roses for bouquets, for instan...

It's all part of the 9th annual Carpinteria Greenhouse and Nursery tour.David Van Wingerden of Westland Orchids took guests on tours through his family's greenhouse where orchids are grown.His family is celebrating their 50th year growing flowers in the valley. But, business is not what it used to be. Van Wingerden said the tours are a not only a rare opportunity to teach people about how flowers are grown and harvested, but also to spread awareness about the declining industry."California used to supply 80% of the cut flowers sold in America," Van Wingerden said before one of his many greenhouse tours. "Now, 80% of flowers sold in America come from South America."While, Carpinteria is still a major source of the flowers sold in the U.S., many growers in the valley are finding they may no longer be able afford to stay in business."South America...
