Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover - Seacoastonline.com
Upon arrival he opened the Sunnyside Conservatories on Rutland Street "a 4-minute walk from the Sawyer Depot."He abandoned this business in favor of the Garrison Hill location which, by 1905, he had turned into the largest greenhouse operation in the state, with 14 glass structures and several acres of outside plantings (he had bought additional land from Joe Ham). The size of the operation was such that he was able to open and supply retail outlets in Portland and Augusta, Portsmouth and Laconia. He put down more roots by marrying a local woman, Ellen "Nellie" Vittum, and he built a sizable home adjacent to the greenhouse complex. In addition to growing flowers he was an active member of the Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, and a relatively exclusive organization, the Society of the Colonial Wars (perhaps the male equivalent of the Daughters of the American Revolution?).In 1921, Howe sold the business to Elwill Shortridge, a prominent Dover entrepreneur, owner of the C.E. Brewster Co., wholesale druggists, which was located in a building at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets, now the site of St. Mary's Parish Hall. At one time Shortridge also served as president of Merchants National Bank and president of the Dover Realty Co. He and his wife, who had been Ada Massingham, lived at 4 West Concord St., and he remained active in the business until his death in 1946. Ada then took over and with her nephew, Tom Massingham, managed the operation until her death in 1958.Tom Massingham had been born in England, but at age 5 was sent by his family to Dover to live with the Shortridges. As a young man he worked in the business, served in World War II, and upon his return and at Ada's death, became the owner of the Garrison Hill Greenhouses. In 1950, he was one of the first to construct a b... Aug 3, 2020

The floral industry has a bad environmental track record. The 'slow flower' movement aims to change that - The Globe and Mail
In 2015, a decrepit house in Detroit, which became known as Flower House, was filled with 4,000 blooms to show that abandoned properties blighting neighbourhoods could be put to far more productive uses. And two years ago, in New York, floral designer Lewis Miller used eye-popping “Flower Flashes” to raise awareness of the vast amount of waste in his industry. Using hundreds of blooms leftover from events, Miller created flower pop-ups in garbage cans, on sewer grates and over statues in Central Park. His message: reuse and recycle. Organizers of the first annual Canadian Flowers Week came up with innovative ways to grab peoples’ attention, wowing them with blooms in unexpected places. Rachel Ryall/Toronto Flower Market Two female entrepreneurs – one in Canada, the other in New York – have built businesses around flower event waste.

Japanese Artist Mariko Maita Creates Unique Art from Pressed Flowers - GraysHarborTalk
The flowers give them an appropriate feathery appearance. Butterflies are a favorite with customers. With these, she abandons any resemblance to nature, running wild with glowing floral patterns on their wings. The same is true for the clothing of the doll-like people she creates.

One of six children, Mariko was born in Tokyo in 1940. Her family was fortunate to own a second house in the country, in Chiba near the ocean. The family moved there when the bombs of World War II started falling on Tokyo. There was a cave in the backyard and they felt quite safe. She still remembers the noise of the bombings. Eight years older, her husband Yosuke was not so fortunate. He escaped direct bomb attacks in the city.
As a child, Mariko was always making things. At school, she excelled in calligraphy, but her real interest lay in drawing. After the war, Mariko went to work for an insurance company. Sacrificing part of her small income, she took art lessons. For eight years, she studied oil painting under renowned artist Jyohei Kawakami as well as sumi-e (Japanese brush painting) under Keiitsu Kishimoto. She keeps a number of slim sketchbooks from that time on her work table and refers to them often. They contain beautiful Japanese landscapes and sights as well as her most treasured drawing, a portrait of herself by her teacher.
Yosuke Maita, who had become a merchant marine officer after the war, decided to try his fortune in Seattle where he found work at a relative's oyster farm. Ten years later, at age 36, he was looking for a Japanese bride. His marriage to Mariko was arranged by relatives. He also became an American citizen and acquired a middle name, Joe, as Yosuke had proven hard to pronounce for his American friends and colleagues. As a husband and father, Yosuke worked in a number of oyster businesses on the Washington coast and finally became a manage... Nov 28, 2018
Anchorage abandons proposal to cut city flower program - Ledger-Enquirer
Anchorage officials abandoned proposed budget cuts to the city flower and horticulture program after residents showed strong opposition to the idea.
Assemblyman John Weddleton had suggested cutting the entire $1.7 million horticultural budget to shift that money toward efforts to clear out illegal homeless camps and move people into emergency shelters, the Anchorage Daily News reported .
Weddleton changed course Tuesday, saying more than 400 emails had been sent since last week in support of downtown flowers and public greenhouses.
