GREENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers
I grow varieties that a florist wouldn't typically find from a wholesaler, heirlooms such as dahlias, Gerrie Hoek and Pam Howden, and foxglove Sutton's apricot. This allows me to differentiate myself and compete with the big guys."
Florist Rebecca De Oliveira, of Blush & Bloom Flower Studio, is buying more of her fresh cut flowers from these farmer-florists as the trend continues. De Oliveira's enthusiasm was apparent in speaking to us, "I buy a lot from the growing number of small batch growers, and it's amazing. Their product is far superior to anything we see imported. It's fantastic!"
"Fresh", "local", "sustainable" and "unique" are common buzzwords that describe both the trend towards farmer's markets and farmer-florists.
Local growers are bound by the same seasonality as the rest of us gardeners – in about a month Canadian gardener will be digging up dahlia tubers. Sweet peas can be sown in pots during autumn and overwintered in a greenhouse, and "hardy annuals" such as larkspur and love-in-a-mist can be sown this fall.
Many local-grown flowers are available now at local farmers markets.
The year-round value of seasonal growers is in the relationships that form between the producers and consumers in a world that has long been dominated by commodified supply chains and major auction houses. "You met my friend Melanie at Dahlia May- she's the coolest!" exclaimed De Oliveira when we called to talk about this story.
Friendships that blossom in business over something as precious as locally grown flowers – isn't that what this business should be about?

However, the plant has been eradicated in several other communities, including Boston.
"It's a very large plant with a large, flowering stalk that towers over people, like an umbrella of white flowers. It's very showy. I think that's what made people plant it years and years ago," Forman Orth said.While beautiful, hogweed can be extremely dangerous. It produces phototoxic sap that, after being exposed to sunlight, forms painful, fluid-filled blisters on human skin, she said. Experts say it can also cause blindness if it gets in your eyes.It also poses some ecological issues.
Once hogweed - which thrives along streams and riverbanks - sprouts flowers, it begins to die, Forman Orth said. Because it's top-heavy, it tips over and pulls up soil along riverbanks, causing soil erosion, she said.The plant recently made headlines after Virginia researchers discovered it had landed in the state for the first time last week, officials said.Researchers from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University acknowledged that while the plant - which was found in Clarke County on June 12 - can be toxic, they believe it was planted intentionally decades ago and hasn't spread since, according to a statement from the university.The plant has also invaded several other states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Maine, Oregon, and Washington, according to research from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It first landed in the United States from Asia and Europe in the early 20th century as an ornamental garden plant, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation said.Fortunate... Jun 14, 2018
Moving on from the lily: The blooming of the funeral flower business
Kelly's Flowers owner Kelly Sutton shows why the funeral flower business is a blooming industry.
Business is blooming for florists in the funeral business.The amount of people dying grew from more than 25,000 in 1973 to 31,000 in 2016, according to Statistics NZ. Kelly Sutton has specialised in funeral flowers for the last 16 of her 32 years as a Wellington florist.
Sutton sometimes uses vegetables from the deceased person's home if they were not keen on flowers or were a particularly keen gardener.
The owner of Kelly's Flowers says people are increasingly looking beyond the classic white lilies for their loved one's respective send-offs.READ MORE:* Sentimental funeral wreath disappears from grave site* Families forgo funerals to cut costs* Wellington woman launches New Zealand's first online funeral directory* Gladness and grief: Saying goodbye to a loved one at Christmas"Vegetable casket sprays are one of my specialties.

They will only grow a little before cold weather stops growth.Hyacinths, ‘Paperwhite’ daffodils, freesias, and Lachenalia corms can be planted in bowls now to achieve flowers for Christmas. Once they have put on 2.5cm (1in) growth, they can be taken into a cool room, only to be brought into a warm room in time to flower for the festive period. Bulbs sold as ‘prepared’ can be forced by plunging the planted bowls in a cold, dark place for a few months, then bringing them straight inside to flower.Lawns on thin soils may benefit from a high phosphate feed. This will strengthen the roots for winter, rather than encouraging lush top growth that could suffer in the cold and weaken the grass.Dig over any areas due to be grassed over later in the year. Leave them for a few weeks to allow weeds to re-emerge, and then spray with a weedkiller or hoe off to ensure thorough weed clearance before seeding or laying turf in the autumn.Summer prune apple and pear trees to encourage more fruiting spurs. Put grease bands on fruit trees to catch wingless winter moths.Plant out rooted strawberry runners and pot some up to bring into the greenhouse later in winter for early fruits.Vegetables to sow now include lettuces, spinach, land cress, purslane, beetroot, radishes, coriander, spring onions, calabrese, spring greens, turnips for their green tops, Swiss chard, winter spinach and hardy Japanese onions.Prune pyracantha and train shoots to supports.Prepare soil to plant evergreen shrubs and conifers by digging it over and incorporatin...
