Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times
That could spell the end of many farms in California’s $360-million cut-flower industry. Since mid-March, sales have fallen an average of 85% on California’s 225 flower and foliage farms, while the labor force has dropped by a similar proportion, according to the California Cut Flower Commission, a state agency that promotes the industry. “We have companies that won’t be here when it’s over,” said David Pruitt, chief executive of the commission.
The novel coronavirus has proved as lethal on an economic scale as it is on the human scale, hitting a highly vulnerable industry in the most precarious part of the season.
“The cut-flower industry has been battling offshore production for many years, and margins are razor thin; so it’s kind of a tipping point,” said Michael Mellano, CEO of Mellano & Co., a third-generation grower and wholesaler headquartered in Los Angeles’ downtown Flower District. “This is our busiest and most profitable time of the year,” Mellano said. “So, it’s absolutely the worst time for something like this to happen.”
Mellano said he laid off more than 90% of his staff and went into survival mode, hoping to gear up his Southern California and Las Vegas distribution hub when the market revives.There probably won’t be a grand reopening for Lompoc-based Ocean View Flowers, which produced 40 million stems only two years ago. Its produce-growing parent company, Santa Barbara Farms, closed the flower ... May 1, 2020

High School product wrapped up a record-setting high school career in the fall.

Flowers also logged 63 rushing touchdowns during his career and earned all-region honors as a senior.“Breaking the record felt amazing not only for me, but the whole Glen Allen community,” Flowers said. “I couldn’t have done it without everybody’s help. The thing that will stick with me the most is (the scene) after the game, just getting to celebrate with all of Glen Allen and how everybody had my back.”Flowers said he’s been in contact with the Orange coaching staff since the summer after his sophomore year.

Even with the changing industry, Benken said she enjoys the challenge when someone gives the shop the creative freedom behind a flower arrangement.
“[I enjoy] when we can do something creative, and it’s not a picture of something [a customer] has seen online,” Benken said. “They give you some money, they give you a general idea and you just run with it.”
