Business Spotlight: Blooming Business - Springfield Business Journal
LLC, and she also buys product from C-Street Flowers LLC. When she can’t find a specific bloom from local growers, she uses wholesalers, such as Mears Floral Products Inc. and Baisch & Skinner Inc.
The truck currently carries mums, strawflowers, zinnias, celosias, sunflowers, dahlias and gomphrena flowers. Hartman says the sunflower is most popular.
This year, Hartman started growing some of her own flowers. Of the 21 buckets typically on the flower truck, which she named “Stella,” she says three or four buckets were consistently homegrown this summer. She hasn’t crunched the numbers yet to see if growing her own flowers saved the business money, but she says it saved time. She hopes to double her own quantity next year.
“The initial preparation of the flower beds took up some time during the offseason, but it saved us driving time and that’s really important for what we do,” Hartman says.
The truck always carries buckets of single-stem flowers to buy per stem or to create a bouquet. Single stems are typically $2-$3, and specialty blooms run $5-$8 apiece, Hartman says.
The mobile business also offers a bouquet delivery service, as well as three-, six-, and 12-month bouquet subscriptions, which Hartman says produce about 15% of total sales. The subscriptions range from $30 to $900, depending on the length of service and size of bouquets.
Hartman also has created relationships with local businesses. Throughout the week, the Ozark Mtn Flower Truck and Hartman’s three part-time employees can be found around town parked at Eurasia Coffee and Tea LLC, Tie and Timber Beer Co. LLC, and Brick and Mortar Coffee LLC. The truck also can be hired for weddings and corporate events. Any given outing generates around $250 in sales, Hartman says.
The C-Street City Market on Commercial Street was Hartman’s first stop in July 2017.
Amy Truitt, manager of the north-side farmers market, says the Ozark Mtn Flower Truck has been an asset.
“People are drawn to it, which brings them to our location,” Truitt says. “A lot of times, people don’t even know we’re there. They come for one specific reason, like the flower truck, and realize there’s a market here and they come back.”
Ahead of the trendBefore taking her business concept to the streets, Hartman says she was inspired by the food truck trend.

New MP forced to defend spending on travel and flowers
Queensland policies to ensure staff had clear guidance about purchases.She described the questions in the Parliament by the LNP as "unfounded smears".The LNP tried to move a motion in the Parliament calling for the government to publicly release the RTI documents, but it was defeated after a vote, despite Greens MP Michael Berkman and independent Sandy Bolton supporting the opposition, due to Labor's majority.Education Minister Grace Grace accused the LNP of trying to "besmirch" the character of Ms McMillan, and "throwing mud"."Get over it - she won the election," Ms Grace said.Ms Grace said she did not get personally involved in the work of RTI officers."What happens is there are independent people who look at this. And they are the ones who make the decisions and until that is finalised, I'm not going to release any papers that I don't know about that are part of an issue to be looked at," she said.LNP leader Deb Frecklington said the opposition had asked about the ethical standards unit."[Ms McMillan] came into the house today and she started talking about the Queensland Audit Office, so obviously the opposition now has more questions than answers," she said.But Deputy Premier Jackie Trad accused the LNP of "muckraking"."Those documents are to be released by the independent Right to Information officer, not a politician," she said.Earlier, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was unaware of the allegations.Comments disabledFelicity Caldwell is state political reporter at the Brisbane TimesMorning & Afternoon NewsletterDelivered Mon–Fri.Aug 15, 2016
Sandy Parrill: When it comes to plants, there's no shame
Tall, elegant lilies have already passed by for a brief affair of the heart, kissing cheeks and nuzzling sleeves with smears of amber pollen.
But it is also time for the ultimate in garden porn to arrive in my mailbox: bulb catalogs that are full of scintillating, seductive photos. It doesn’t help that daffodils come with names such as “Kiss Me,” “Tete a Tete,” “Rapture” and “Intrigue.” Tulips such as “Sugar Love,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Fire of Love” are marked with hearts as favorite selections.
But my favorites are exotic strangers that keep me spellbound such as Salome, whispering tales of 1,001 gardens and natives that hint of subtle, cozy companionship and promises of lifetimes together.
It will soon be time for colchicums (aka naked boys, so called because they grow leaves in spring like naked ladies and discard them for late summer bloom) to come cavorting through the garden with huge pink, purple and white cups amid blue flowers of leadwort. They are planted near the doorstep to be noticed both coming and going.
Pest-proof because of their poisonous attributes, colchicums have long been used in the production of the drug colchine, used to treat gout. I have already sent in an order of a few new titillating varieties this year. I procrastinated too long last fall, and my most desired were sold out.
Colchicums should be in the ground no later than early September, but the huge, baseball-sized bulbs will even bloom sitting on a windowsill, to be planted later when the flowers fade. I sometimes divide older clumps as I see them start to bloom if they have become so crowded bulbs have pushed up and are lying on top of the ground.
Camassias will be added this year as well. An old planting of 20 years failed to come up this spring, and I mourned for them. Native to North America, camassias, or “quamash” bulbs, in the story of the Indian woman Sacajawea, were fed to Lewis and Clark to keep them alive during their expedition of North America. In late spring, they sport pretty blue or white star-like flowers dancing up a 2-foot stalk, relishing sun or light shade and most any soils from moist to dry.
But I believe I hear the sweet call of something fresh blooming in the garden, and I must go to greet them. Will it be the cameo pink flowering Japanese anemones, announcing the anticipation of autumn; tantalizing fragrant Honeybells hosta; skyrockets of goldenrod; or lemon yellow Missouri primrose? Which will be my love today?

Lady's slipper is best-known native orchid
As it crawls out the exit hole, the bee passes a small projection, the flower’s anther (male part), which smears pollen onto the bee’s back. If the bee visits another lady’s slipper, it will deposit this pollen on the female part of that plant.
Only a small percentage of flowers are pollinated each year, as, without a nectar reward, bees soon learn not to bother with lady’s slippers.
If a flower is pollinated, a fruit begins to grow. By summer’s end, the almond-shaped fruit is 1.5 inches long and has three prominent ribs. As the capsule dries, the ribs split open. Thousands of tiny seeds that look like fine sawdust gradually sift out and are dispersed by wind and water.
Orchid seeds develop differently from seeds of other plants. They have no stored starch reserves. When they first germinate, they form a tuber-like structure. This will not grow until joined by a specific species of fungus, which may take a few years.
The plant forms a symbiotic relationship with the microscopic fungus, which helps its roots absorb nutrients from the soil. Once the seedling produces green leaves and begins to photosynthesize to create energy, it is less dependent on the fungus.
From the time seed is first dispersed, it can take 10 to 17 years for a lady’s slipper to bloom in the wild.
In addition to the pink lady’s slippers I saw on my camping trip, several uncommon to rare lady’s slippers are found in the Northeast.
The showy lady’s slipper, whose species name reginae means “queen” in Latin, is a spectacular, large white flower with a rose pouch that grows in limy fens and swamps. In 1929, Morris and Eames described it as “the crowning glory of our northern bogs.”
There are also three varieties of yellow lady’s slippers in our region. The most dramatic of these is the northern small yellow lady’s slipper, deep yellow with scarlet markings inside; petals and sepals are suffused with dark chestnut-purple. It has an intense, sweet fragrance and prefers northern white cedar swamps and fens.
In addition, there’s the ram’s-head lady’s slipper, a rare reddish flower with a conical pouch that grows in rich, moist forest soil and cedar swamps.
Many species of lady’s slippers have declined because of habitat conversion and digging by gardeners and commercial collectors. Browsing can be a factor where deer populations are high and natural succession can shade out some species.
Orchids are challenging to grow in the garden, as they are very particular about soil and habit... (Stowe Today)Feb 3, 2016
Unselfish Smyrna cruises by Concord
Zaire Swaby, Charlie Taylor and Ja’vier Worthy during Smyrna’s 69-47 win at home Tuesday.
SMYRNA – Smyrna boys’ basketball coach Andrew Mears said Tuesday night was the first time his team had been at full-strength in a while.
If the Eagles’ 69-47 win over Flight A contender Concord is any indication of how they’ll play this season out, the rest of the state should take notice.
“Things definitely fell into place for us tonight,” Mears said. “We played Eagle basketball and got the win. This is the first time we’ve been totally healthy in weeks and it showed.”
“It’s a tough adjustment,” added freshman forward Jaymeir Garnett, who led Smyrna with 17 points and five assists. “But we learn our lessons from our losses and keep pushing forward.”
No such lesson would be necessary on Tuesday, as Garnett and sophomore guard Caleb Matthews (16 points on four three-point shots) led a balanced Eagles attack that put the game away with a 16-5 run to start the third quarter, ballooning a 30-22 halftime lead to 46-27 in the later stages of the period.
“When we go on a run like that, teams usually quit,” Matthews explained. “When all three of us – myself, Jaymeir and Ja’vier [Worthy] – are scoring like that, it’s hard to beat us.”
Garnett, after scoring 10 points in the first half, turned to playmaking duties in the third quarter, racking up four of his five ass... (USA TODAY High School Sports)
