Downingtown’s Petals Please recycles wedding and funeral flowers into free bouquets for lonely seniors - The Philadelphia Inquirer
Adams. “Unfortunately, I knew a lot of funeral directors.” In July 2018, a volunteer picked up the first donation and returned ”with so many flowers in her SUV you couldn’t even see her.” Petals Please has since shifted its arranging sessions from Adams’ dining-room table to a space at Downingtown United Methodist Church. Flowers and vases or other containers are donated, and everything gets recycled, including flower petals, which get taken to a chicken farm in Malvern. Amelia Wondrasch especially enjoys that task. A 15-year-old student at Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square whose family is close to the Adamses, she has been a volunteer pretty much from the beginning. “I’ve always been a big one for recycling and composting,” she said. “And I love the idea of being able to...

Daisies bring a sunny look to the garden - Sumter Item
To the botanist and gardener, the meaning of "daisy" is not so simple. The botanist explains that the daisy is a composite flower made up of many small, individual florets. Those florets that make up the eye of the daisy have inconspicuous petals.
A different type of floret, the so-called ray florets, skirt the daisy's eye, and each has one large, outward-pointing petal. The petals you actually see on a daisy flower are those from the ray florets.
WHAT IS A DAISY?
Botanically, all daisies are in the Compositae, or daisy, family. But that family also includes many other plants not commonly called daisies. Lettuce and zinnias, for example.
The daisy family has two subdivisions, one of which is exemplified by the child's flower drawing, sunflowers, coneflowers and other daisies with "eyes." For examples of the other subdivision, look closely at a dandelion or chicory flower; in these flowers, all the florets are ray florets, each with a single, large, strap-like petal. There is no eye to these flowers.
The original "daisy" of poetry and literature is the English daisy, Bellis perennis. These squat, cheerful flowers, with yellow discs surrounded by petals in shades from deep-rose to white, originated in the grassy fields of England. Now they are widespread in America, too. Cultivated forms have been bred to have so many rows of petals that their yellow eyes often are hidden. These plants self-sow readily to give seedlings that revert to the "wild" form with a single row of petals, in which case they sometimes are considered weeds as they invade lawns and gardens.
SO MANY FLOWERS WITH "DAISY" IN THEIR NAMES
Nowadays, we gardeners use the word "daisy" to represent many different flowers in the... Aug 3, 2020
Connections flower through Lewes woman's Facebook group - CapeGazette.com
The COVID-19 pandemic introduced a world of social distancing that has left many longing for social connection.Victoria Brown of Lewes recognized this need and started a Facebook group called Sisterhood of the Traveling Flowers & Plants - Delaware. Since the group started in May, it has quickly turned into a source of optimism for many and grown to include 750 local Delaware members.
To participate in the Facebook group, members are tasked with safely delivering flowers or plants to the front doorstep of the home of other group members overnight. Once a plant is received, the recipient posts a photo online of their potted present so the rest of the online community knows they have been “planted.”
“I thought it was great to get out of the house during the quarantine and make someone’s day,” said Brown. “One small gesture can change a person's outlook on life.” The group has brought her closer to people she would have otherwise never met to build this online community. She said, “I have received many messages from ladies who were going through depression or... Aug 3, 2020
Business is blooming at NYC Flower District staple thanks to outdoor dining - New York Post
Kumar was able to open for retail on June 10, but many of his regular clients have yet to return after fleeing New York.
“We have a lot of great customers, but they’re out of the city right now,” Kumar, who took over the shop from his father and uncle in 2003, told The Post. “They don’t want to come back, but they’re still in touch with us and they know we’re waiting for them.”
The span of the lockdown was particularly painful for flower shop owners because it coincided with the all-important graduation season, when clients would normally be ordering bouquets of table orchids for parties and renting giant palms for outdoor celebrations.
“I’d say around 30 to 40 percent of business in May and June is graduation parties,” Kumar said. “We didn’t get any this year.”
And while he’d normally supply flowers to fill party halls for at least 15 weddings each summer, Kumar said that this year he hasn’t done a single one.
The slowdown in business has left Kumar with a huge backlog of inventory. Orders for spring flowers and summer plants were placed in January — well before the pandemic was a concern for most Americans — when the shop was still expecting strong warm-weather business.
“Now our suppliers are calling us and saying, ‘Hey, you still have that order sitting here,’” Kumar said. “We might have ordered 200 plants in one nursery, but we’re telling them we only need 125 or 150.”

The plants that have already been shipped to the 28th Street store are being sold at a discount, with boxes of orchids that might normally cost $65 selling for $50.
“Hotels don’t have guests, so they’re not putting orchids in their rooms,” Kumar explained. “In a month that might be changing, but right now we’re not getting a lot of business.”

Amherst Garden Walk blooms despite COVID-19 - Amherst Bee
Even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Hidy expects a higher turnout this year, since many garden walks in the area chose to cancel their events. Preparation for this year’s Amherst Garden Walk involved extensive advertising, including online promotion and signage, to raise awareness for the event.
According to Hidy, safety is a top priority for the garden walk. In addition to receiving approval for this year’s plan from the Town of Amherst Supervisor, Hidy and Moden are implementing other safety precautions.
“We’re mandating that all visitors are wearing a mask. They also practice social distancing,” Hidy said. “In the past, we have had different homeowners pass out beverages, and we opted to not do that, basically to minimize touching or any form of human contact.”
Even with the new safety guidelines and procedures, Hidy expects the walk to be an enjoyable community event.
“We just want people to know that we take their safety as well as the homeowners’ safety very seriously,” Hidy said.
If individuals are not able to attend the garden walk but are still interested in seeing the decorated gardens, pictures taken by both visitors and participants will be available on the “Amherst Garden Walk” Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BloomingAmherst/, following the event.
More information about the Amherst Garden Walk can be found on this Facebook page, and questions about this year’s event can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

A pandemic garden of joy and happiness in just three months - Marin Independent Journal
Dahlias are my absolute favorite flower and my favorite variety is called ‘SB’s Sunny,’” Miller says. “There are so many varieties and each one is unique. I love the colors and the shape of the petals.”
Miller wants to extend her garden in autumn and is planning her plantings for spring.
“I can’t wait to add more fruit trees and try growing potatoes,” she says.
This space has given her more than fruits and vegetables to eat and flowers to enjoy, it’s given her a great sense of accomplishment.
“Creating something from nothing is amazing,” she says.
It has also given her a new way to experience nature each day.
Photo by Arianne MillerPollinator plants, such as zinnias and dahlias, mingle with fruits and vegetables in Arianne Miller’s Novato garden.
“I love seeing the birds enjoying the garden,” she says. “I love the early morning light, picking the vegetables and watering everything by hand.”
She has two tips to share with readers.
“Plant what you love,” she says. “Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. If I can do it, so can you.”
Miller can’t share her peaches with all of us, but she offers her recipe for summer peach crisp.
Arianne Miller’s summer peach crisp
4 cups sliced fresh peaches
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup cold butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup rolled oats
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange peaches evenly in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish. Mix flour, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and salt in a bowl using a pastry cutter until evenly crumbled. Fold oats into flour mixture; sprinkle and press topping into peaches. Bake the crisp in a preheated oven until the topping is lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
