The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times
Queen Anne’s lace, lady’s slippers and hellebore anchored in distressed terra-cotta or stone pots — in his Brooklyn studio, using everyday materials: Petals are made from paper towels hand-painted with food dye, coffee and tea; stamens are made from kitchen sponges. Boulder, Colo.-based Stephanie Redlinger, 39, a former graphic designer who launched her paper botanical atelier, the Florasmith, in San Francisco in 2015, considers her flowers and the mushrooms she has perfected, made primarily from crepe paper embellished with materials like sand, “as botanical portrait or homage” — realistic but with an emphasis on each creation’s essential quirks, such as a poppy’s wrinkles. The paper artist Zoe Bradley, 47, whose studio is in Cowbridge, near Cardiff, Wales, takes a more abstract, performative approach to her flowers. She began her career at the fashion house Alexander McQueen, where she built wooden legs and fan-shaped corsets for one of the designer’s elaborate runway shows, and her psychedelic-meets-origami blossoms, which she creates from stiff metallic paper, have been displayed in the windows of London stores including Liberty and Harrods.And then there’s Tiffanie Turner, based in Fairfax, Calif., who is widely acknowledged as the progenitor and doyenne of the new generation of paper-flower makers, teaching popular workshops on the subject. She shows her work in galleries and museums, like the a... Oct 15, 2020
New York City's ‘Flower Flash’ Florist Designs a Display for Ralph Lauren - Architectural Digest
There’s a strange beauty in the disarray as well.”Another Miller creation outside of a subway station in Brooklyn.
Irini Arakas GreenbaumThe florist estimates he’ll use between 6,000 and 7,000 stems in the fanciful creations, including plenty of pink roses and peonies. Those varietals also happen to be two of the starring notes in Ralph Lauren’s new Romance Pink Pony Edition fragrance. All profits from the scent, which served as an inspiration for Lewis’s floral designs, will go to the fund.He notes that thanks to social media, photos of his installations will reach audiences far beyond New York, offering a much-needed reminder of the city’s magic. “Any attention we can bring our fair metropolis right now is really a good idea,” says Lewis. “We all need a little bit of a surprise these days, in a positive way. The whole country needs it, the whole world needs it.”... Oct 15, 2020
Don't let the name fool you—Floral Park Market is one of the best places to grocery shop - Atlanta Magazine
Deborah Johnson, who lived in Paris for more than 20 years and was schooled at Le Cordon Bleu) to frozen wood-fired pizza (from a Brooklyn outfit that got its start on Shark Tank).But that’s hardly the market’s sole selling point. There is a station for dispensing locally made Golda’s CBD kombucha on tap, shelves of local H+F breads next to two crockpots of boiled peanuts, and a large display of organic hand-milled grains. Floral Park Market doesn’t feel like a glorified convenience store. Everything from the spicy Portuguese tinned sardines to the roasted pecans whose proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels has been carefully sourced. If your ideal shopping list includes freshly baked banana bread, a bottle of elderberry syrup, high-quality CBD products, and in-house pickles, jams, and honey butter, there’s no better market in town. And as someone who has long been committed to the imperative to shop local, I’m kicking myself for not finding my way to Floral Park Market sooner.This article appears in our October 2020 issue.Advertisement...

How an Urban Flower Farmer Spends Her Sundays - The New York Times
Three years ago, Christina Clum left the corporate world to become an urban flower farmer.Her backyard in Kensington, Brooklyn, however, “is the size of a postage stamp,” she said. “And it doesn’t get good light.” So in February 2018, she put the word out to other Brooklyn residents about doing plantings in their yards. The exchange would be simple: They would get to enjoy the flowers, and then she would cut them and sell them through her company, Spry Flower Farm.Ms. Clum, 51, settled on five yards. “I had certain criteria,” she said. “I didn’t want to have to walk through someone’s home, because it would be weird and invasive.” She needed sunlight and an outside water source. Ms. Clum also made it clear that she wasn’t a landscaper. “Some people still don’t get that,” she said.“I have developed quite a fondness for my hosts and have attended barbecues and plays in which they are involved,” said Ms. Clum, who visits her hosts’ properties several times a week to dig up weeds, plant new seeds, and water the flowers, which she sells through a subscription service and to two stores. “I think it definitel...

A walk through Brooklyn Botanic Garden, now closed due to the coronavirus pandemic - Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Eye on Real Estate: Such serendipity.
It was my sheer good fortune to visit Brooklyn Botanic Garden the very last day before officials decided to close it to help slow the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
I wanted to do a better job of complying with the urgent need for New Yorkers to practice social distancing, so I made a resolution to walk more and stay out of the subway unless I had absolutely no alternative.
My reward for resolving to do the right thing and walk, walk, walk was a glorious afternoon at the famous 52-acre horticulture mecca — and the privilege of being among the last people to photograph its early spring flowers before it was closed.
The magnolia trees were magnificent at the venerable garden, which was founded in 1910 and opened in 1911. I’m glad I took tons of photos — because on Monday, the garden’s top brass decided it should be shut down “... Feb 27, 2020
Nothing Says ‘I Love You’ Like Secondhand Roses - The New York Times
Ms. Cohen’s apartment in Downtown Brooklyn.There, the Vogelstein sisters paid Ms. Cohen a few hours work to help them sort through the anemone, ranunculus, delphinium, privet berry, pear flower blossom, hydrangea and garden roses, as they figured out how to create new arrangements. Some would be going to subscribers who receive a delivery once a month for $29. The rest would be donated to a Lincoln Square neighborhood center.ReVased customers “don’t know exactly which flowers they are going to get,” said Aviva Vogelstein, who quit her job this month as a lawyer to work for the company full time. “That makes it exciting.”Office space, scooters, and now, floral arrangements: The sharing economy has trickled down to the flower industry, with more companies across the city committed to either extending the temporary joy flowers bring or to reusing or composting them more responsibly.After all, flowers are big business, and there’s room for growth. This year, for Valentine’s Day alone, Americans are expected to spend $2.3 billion on flowers, up from $1.9 billion last year, according to the National Retail Federation.In a city like New York, where special events happen on a daily basis and cut flowers are in demand year-round, it was only a matter of time before eco-minded entrepreneurs saw an opportunity.“Valentine’s Day is an incredibly wasteful holiday in terms of its environmental impact, but if you’re looking at the year as a whole, events are way worse,” said Liza Lubell, who runs Peartree Flowers, which specializes in large installations.A typical large event like a wedding or gala can produce up to 100 bags of flowers, Ms. Lubell said. “It’s not just centerpieces on a table anymore,” she continued. “The whole ceiling could be filled with flowers.” So Ms. Lubell created a second company, Garbage Goddess, which provides eco-cleanup services for events in New Yor...
