Flowers looking tired? How to extend their vase life - New Haven Register
Lisa Mason Ziegler, a cut flower grower and operator of The Gardener's Workshop, an online flower farming school near Newport News, Virginia. "Dahlias and sweet peas are more like five days. They have a shorter life but look fabulous."
When selecting cut flowers, keep in mind that iris, tulips, snapdragons and daffodils have an extremely short vase life — less than a week. Orchids, carnations and chrysanthemums usually last two weeks or more.
A clean vase is important, Ziegler said. "Put it in a dishwasher to remove any bacteria. Then cut 1 to 2 inches off each stem before putting them into the vase. They're probably clogged but cutting will open them up and they'll be able to feed again," she says.
Conditioning needs vary, said John Dole, an associate dean and floriculture specialist at North Carolina State University. Some varieties require more managing than others, but all cut flowers should be fed.
"Use the flower food packets that most likely came with the bouquet," Dole said. "Mix according to directions and position the flowers into the vase. After they've had their first big drink, take them out, put in fresh water and cut the stems again.
"By doing that your flowers will last longer and the sugars in the flower food will enhance their colors — particularly the purples," he said.

Historic Garden Week to bring tourists and provide plenty of flowers
Mary Johnson, chairwoman of the Hampton Newport News Garden Club.Historic Garden Week is dedicated to showcasing the state’s formal gardens, cottage gardens, herb gardens, water gardens and various floral arrangements.Johnson said she expects anywhere from 800-1,000 people to attend Garden Week at the five homes that will be on display in Hampton and Newport News.Over the past five years, Johnson said the tour has bought in on average 961 attendees and raised $27,000.Tour proceeds from the week fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic public gardens, a fellowship program and a centennial project with Virginia State Parks, according to a news release from the organization.At the state level, the week-long event attracts 25,000 visitors and has bought in an estimated $425 million over the last 45 years, said Karen Ellsworth, state director for Historic Garden Week.Ellsworth said the estimated figure factors in money spent on ticket sales, hotels, meals and gas.“When you look at the economic impact, it’s not just ticket sales,” Ellsworth said.Since 1920 the Garden Club of Virginia has grown from eight founding clubs to 47 clubs with more than 3,300 members, according to a news release from the Historic Garden Week.Organizers estimate 2,300 floral arrangements will be made specifically for the 85th Historic Garden Week.The Hampton Newport News Garden Club tour will feature four Hampton Universi...Aug 25, 2017
Floral industry adapts to avoid withering
Brown, said the company decided to open up two other locations elsewhere to expand Norfolk Florist’s customer and delivery base.One is planned for Newport News, while the other is planned for the Suffolk area. The branches on Baker Road in Virginia Beach and Battlefield Boulevard in Chesapeake will remain open.Lone Star Bloom owns 16 brick-and-mortar flower shops across several states – a business they promote with a “Sell Your Store” tab on their website.Brown said he sees his business role as stepping in and revitalizing local retailers. Most of the floral shops were financially struggling when the company bought them, he said, but that’s not the case with Norfolk Florist.“They have been growing every year since five years ago,” Brown said. “Most of the flower shops we look at have five years of declining revenue. It was definitely the strongest florist we had come across.”Companies like Teleflora and FTD have been strong players in the floral industry by creating a network of florists for online orders and deliveries.Shops can pay up to around 30 percent commission from the orders through these websites, Brown said.All three floral shops work with one or both of these companies.“Everybody’s taking a little piece of the pie out...” Parker said. “The rate of the orders coming in doesn’t amount to what you’re paying out to them.”In the end, Munford said keeping customers coming back means providing quality and expertise.“For these life changing moments, you want the best,” she said.

Local Flowers Make a Comeback
Our flowers play a bigger role [in the farm] than a cash crop,” said Lisa Ziegler, owner of The Gardener’s Workshop in Newport News, Virginia, a commercial flower garden she started in 1998. “They’re the welcome mat for good bugs.”Ziegler comes from a vegetable-farming background and began by dabbling in flowers, adding a row here and there among her pesticide-free beans and tomatoes. She now only sells flowers, although she continues to grow food to eat and trade with neighbors.Lisa Ziegler. (Photo courtesy of The Gardener’s Workshop)Rather than branding all insects bad for the farm, growers like Leiss and Ziegler differentiate between “good” and “bad” insects. While some insects eat food crops, others eat those destructive insects. By maintaining a balance of the two, pest problems in gardens and on farms can often be kept at an acceptable level. But when there is a lack of crop diversity, pests can get out of hand.If you only ever plant a few kinds of crops over and over, the same pests will keep coming back, and you’re less likely to f...

Newport News twin sisters open Hilton flower shop
Twin sisters in Newport News want to make picking up flowers a little bit easier and more affordable."It's kind of a do-it-yourself concept but we provide the supplies and the flowers," Connie Lowe said. "The idea is for the customer to come in and be creative."Corrie Shumate and Lowe opened Pick Me Up Love at 10221 Warwick Blvd. in Hilton Village in November 2016, Lowe said. The twins, 45, had worked together for the same company in the past and tossed around the dream of running their own business and working for themselves."The reason I chose this particular business, flowers, is because I've always enjoyed fresh-cut flowers and I like the atmosphere it creates around people," Shumate said. "It makes people happy."Shoppers can buy flowers by the stem, develop their own arrangement and use the store's supplies of cellophane, tissue paper, craft paper or ribbon to create their own flower wraps, Lowe said. The tissue paper and ribbon is complimentary while shoppers can also purchase glass or paper vas... (Daily Press)Jun 22, 2016
