New Hampshire florists see demand bloom despite event cancellations - New Hampshire Business Review
Flowers are natural mood elevators, a fact that behavioral research from Rutgers University in New Jersey confirms. The study measured participants’ reactions to gifts of flowers against gifts of candles or fruit baskets, and only flowers elicited authentic smiles. This is all the more notable in time of coronavirus because these types of grins show up in the crow’s feet or laugh lines area of the face and are discernible behind a mask.
More people are also seeking blossoms native to the area, said researcher Kaitlyn Orde at the University of New Hampshire’s Sideman Lab.
The number of farms producing field-grown cut flowers in New Hampshire climbed from 64 to 101 farms, an increase of about 60%, in the decade from 2007 to 2017, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
“Cut flowers are an increasingly important specialty crop in the state,” said Orde, “and [the spike] illustrates that consumer demand is strong for regionally-grown flowers.”
Despite the lack of special events, Bob Cote of wholesaler Baystate Farm Direct Flowers in Bedford says business has been brisk. However, the continued postponement of large gatherings for funerals and nuptials is not hardy news for florists powering through less than ideal conditions. “Weddings are our bread and butter for the summer,” Cote said.
Floral shops, like other retailers, are adjusting their operations to address customers’ hesitancy to browse in their aisles. In addition to offering delivery and curbside pickup, Hewson encourages people to visit her open-air greenhouse where she transferred many of her ancillary gift items. She also posted that same inventory on a revamped website.
“We’re still using that [the greenhouse and the website] for people who don’t feel comfortable coming into the store,” she said. “Being inventive is what got us through.”
Catalysts for compassion

Community well-wishers also helped merchants withstand the pandemic’s aftermath. One customer started what Hewson calls a “flower chain.”
In April, Maryanne Jackson of North Conway purchased 20 table-sized bouquets of friezes, roses and greenery from Hewson with a note wishing people “joy and color,” asking them to support small businesses and consider paying forward the gift. Many of the recipients heeded the suggestion and called Hewson’s shop ... May 1, 2020

COVID-19. It’s been hard to get flowers in.“It’s been really hard for our wholesalers. One of my direct wholesalers are out of New Jersey, they had to shut down completely. So our local ones have very limited product,” Scott Robertson, a co-owner of Stems Fleur, said. “The growers in the Netherlands have been throwing away thousands and thousands and thousands of flowers. It’s been bad all the way up the chain.”“It’s very limited on what we’re able to get in from our wholesalers,” Urban Orchid owner Brandon Sitler said. “We do have a lot in here. It’s just, if you called in and said, “I wanted a peony,” I don’t have peonies in right now.”A Ohio Department of Health spokeswoman, when asked directly whether flower shops count as essential businesses, didn’t answer the question. Instead, she said the businesses still operating need to ensure they are following the stay-at-home order guidelines.“Businesses need to use their common sense on how they interpret the order. If the local health department or local law enforcement showed up, would they have a rationale that they could point to in that order that yes, this is under this provision and this is how we are staying open,” ODH spokeswoman Melanie Amato said. “They also have to prove that they are following all the guidelines set forth in the order.”...
