Downingtown’s Petals Please recycles wedding and funeral flowers into free bouquets for lonely seniors - The Philadelphia Inquirer
Lots of people love flowers. But few love flowers as much as the people of Petals Please. This Chester County nonprofit rescues and repurposes beautiful blooms from weddings, funerals, corporate events, and other occasions. Related stories Volunteers pick up the donations, disassemble the sprays and centerpieces, trim the blossoms, and create teacup bouquets and other small arrangements for delivery to senior citizens like May Hiltebeitel. “Flowers are heartwarming and wonderful,” Hiltebeitel, 101, said from the Simpson Meadows Retirement Community in Downingtown — the town where the garden she once created outside her own home on a busy street became a local landmark. “Petals Please brings so much happiness to us old folks living alone,” Hiltebeitel said. “In fact, it’s the next best thing to your grandchildren coming to visit.” Petals Please, founded in 2018, has created and delivered about 8,000 floral gifts throughout Chester County. Most of the recipients are in nursing homes, hospice care, or are Meals on Wheels clients; some have few visito... Jun 19, 2020

New Hampshire florists see demand bloom despite event cancellations - New Hampshire Business Review
Pandemics don’t have silver linings, but they’re catalysts for compassion. Aimee Godbout of the family-owned Jacques Flowers in Manchester, said she expects sales to drop off during summer, but she’s seen an uptick in customers placing orders outside of special occasions.
“There’s the everyday ‘I miss you,’” as people choose flowers for parents they’re unable to visit, a neighbor who can’t get out of the house or the local nursing staff, she said.
“Right now there’s a lot of ugliness happening in the world,” said Godbout. Working at a flower shop provides contrast. “Every time you pick up the phone, it’s someone calling to be nice.”
Wrenn, of Shirley’s Flowers, has noticed that requests are grander and more intricate. Instead of ordering simple bouquets to honor birthdays, customers want floral cakes dotted with lavender blooms and candles. Or they request novelties: flower arrangements designed to resemble mermaids, unicorns or cats.
Meanwhile, proms and graduations are canceled. Godbout said her company normally sets up the stages to honor these milestones, but “all that business is gone.”
Offsetting a potential summer slump is Godbout’s garden shop. Springtime has pollinated a kinship for plants and with people spending more time at home, even those without a green thumb are taking up the horticulture hobby to cultivate a backyard escape.
In the last week or so, Godbout has arranged phone or video consultations from brides who rescheduled or are starting to plan their ceremonies for 2021.
Many of the more than 400,000 vendors that support the $74 billion wedding industry are small mom-and-pop shops. Stay-at-hom... Jun 19, 2020

Mild winter lacking snow leads to early spring flowers - WKYT
WINCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - We saw many rainy days this Meteorological Winter, which goes from December through February. But as far as snowfall goes, we really haven't seen that much. This winter we saw 5.4 inches of snow, and for the past three years we have seen a very similar trend.
Flowers are already starting to bloom in early March.
"Every year is different, every year is unique," David Davis, Extension Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources, said.
Since it has been another mild winter, some plants are already starting to bloom.
"Plants are breaking dormancy quite a bit earlier than we would have expected," Davis said. "What I've seen a lot of quite a bit this week are like our Bradford pear trees, our flowering trees, a lot of our ornamentals."
Those vibrant colors and comfortable temper...
