Floral industry adapts to avoid withering
It’s a trend he’s noticed more often and one he hopes won’t reach his shop’s doorstep.Parker owns and operates Churchland’s Village Flower Shop in Portsmouth. He took over the business from his parents, Walter and Janice Parker.The business has been open since 1964 and has only ever had one storefront — something Parker said he doesn’t intend on changing.Parker said one location can do just as well as “multitude of locations,” but this doesn’t mean he hasn’t seen a decrease in the floral business over the years.“At one time, we were doing as many as 125 to 150 deliveries a day. When the economy slowed down, that went down to 25, 30 to 50 deliveries a day,” he said. “There’s nothing in my shop that you have to have. You have to have air and water. Everything else is just a luxury.”Sarah Munford, co-owner of The New Leaf in Norfolk, agreed flower arrangements have always been a luxury.“It’s a luxury business. You could easily buy a Hallmark card or a free email card…” she said. “I think it’s a lost art. ... You don’t have to go to a flower shop anymore to get flowers. You can buy them (at grocery stores), but if you want the experience and expertise, you’ll come to us.”Munford opened her floral shop with co-owner Lau... (Virginian-Pilot)Mar 9, 2017

Made in St. Louis: Designer prefers unexpected luxe bohemian style
Laurie Skrivan, email@example.com
Always an entrepreneur • Flowers has an accounting degree from Kee business college in Portsmouth, Va., and says that she always planned to have a business of her own, but she had no idea it would be jewelry design. “When the store closed I knew that I needed something where I could be transient, and this just happened. I’m self-taught, and I’m always learning,” Flowers said.
Creative streak • Flowers has always enjoyed sketching, so the image she created to represent her brand comes from one of her casual sessions with pen and paper. “It’s Eve,” she said of the line drawing composed of electrified zigzag lines that outline a female form with an Afro sitting cross-legged and backward. The abstract sketch shows that she’s hugging herself, arms wrapping around to her back. “You have to love yourself,” Flowers explains simply.

Tattoo test • The soft-spoken designer appeared to have the “Eve” figure tattooed over her lower arm spanning 6 inches and extending over the back of her hand. A collection of her geometric mixed metal bangles envelop the figure centered over her wrist. She reveals that this is a temporary tattoo ($10) at sahgol.com, but she’s considering a permanent one along the inside of her forearm up to her wrist.
Naturally chic • A native of North Carolina, Flowers came to St. Louis with her husband about 15 years ago, but her personal aesthetic has always been a cool, sleek earthy vibe that she described as upscale bohemian. (STLtoday.com)Aug 15, 2016

Student-grown flowers planted across Portsmouth
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Horticulture students from Churchland High School are helping beautify the city.
Landscapers with the city of Portsmouth have planted more than 200 flowers in eight different locations. 10 On Your Side was there May 5 as crews planted 50 flowers at the intersection of Effingham Street and London Boulevard.
The Portsmouth Public Schools says the city of Portsmouth purchased the begonias after the students grew more than 500 plants for their Spring Flower Sale.
The class of 18 students spends part of their time in the classroom and part of their time growing plants in the school’s greenhouse. The program is part of the school system’s vocational training offerings.
“I’ve learned about different pesticides that you can’t mix together. I’ve learned what you wear while you are planting and applying pesticides,” said Jakuel Fentress, a first-year student of the program.
