Struggling Naples florist brings smiles in tough times, giving away flowers - Naples Daily News
They were a gift from this florist."That gentleman was Patrick.The delivery came with a message that he and his wife need help to keep supporting their family — and Del Bello shared it with her followers on Facebook."These crazy days are calling for creativity and ingenuity to survive," she wrote in her post. "I'm sure they would gladly do an arrangement for you! Let’s help our local businesses!"Mirela, the shop's only florist, came up with the idea to give away the flowers."It's better than to do nothing," she said. "It's a way to at least get something and to try to survive and to keep the business working."Business dries upDue to the pandemic, the local flower shop, in an industrial building off Linwood Avenue near downtown Naples, can't accept walk-ins anymore, it's barely receiving any new orders — and with so many of its partner restaurants, office, hotels and restaurants closed the events market that usually feeds it business year-round is shut down.The last-minute cancellations of so many local events left the Beneš' with a large inventory of unused flowers in early March. "All of that money went away too," Patrick said.The Beneš' didn't give away all their flowers, in hopes of getting some orders after making their free deliveries.According to economic impact survey, SWFL's economy taking a big blow from coronavirusAlso: February jobs report for SWFL rosy, but picture has darkened due to coronavirusThey got a few orders on Tuesday from nearby residents who received the free flowers, so they reopened the shop after it sat dark for several days in a row."If this keeps going, it will be amazing," Mirela said. "We will see."Even if it doesn't keep going this way, she's not going to give up easily."It's not only the money," she said. "We invested a lot of money into the business, but it's also the heart. I would say it's our heart's desire to keep it alive." Going forward, getting flowers will be more difficult. Their usual wholesalers aren't trucking flowers to this coast anymore, due to the coronavirus scare.The Beneš' are prepared to do whatever they can to fill any orders they get, even if it means driving to Orlando or Miami to pick up the flowers themselves."We are running out of money. We need people to call us. We need people to order with us," Patrick said.Did you know?: More young people are testing positive for COVID-19 in SWFLBy the way: Renters, property managers feel pressure as rent comes dueThe couple moved to North Naples in 2018 from Germany, where they owned and operated a larger flower shop.

Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
Ms. Carr, who plans to donate from her floral sales to various organizations supporting Richmond’s African-American community.
With the help of staff and flower donations from Fourteen Acres Flower Farm, Ms. Carr and Ms. Shaw placed flowers around the two monuments on the last weekend in May.
Mrs. Walker’s descendants were heartened.
“That was a beautiful thing as we experience the protests going on in Richmond and the rest of the country,” said Liza Mickens, 22, the greatgreat-granddaughter of Mrs. Walker.
She learned about it when she received a tag on social media by Ms. Shaw, a longtime friend, who had posted a photo of the statue that was ringed with flowers.
“That gesture not only embraced Maggie Walker, who believed the future is in the hands of the youths, it embraces and champions black voices, which is what the monument is all about,” Ms. Mickens said.
“It’s great that we are using all of our talents to champion the cause,” she continued. “The protests and conversations are a continuation of the historic fight for empowerment, equality and equity for all Americans. But it is my generation’s responsibility to leave the world in a better place than when we came into it.”
Ms. Carr has a similar view of history and current events.
“It is sad that police are targeting African-Americans and that economic and educational discrimination is still ingrained in American society, especially after the protests in the 1960s and early ’90s.”
She continued, “All lives don’t matter until black lives matter.”

Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times
F.J. Trzuskowski, vice president of sales for Washington-based Continental Floral Greens, which grows the “supporting cast” green foliage for bouquets on three California farms.
“There was no forewarning of this. It was like, ‘Hey, stop all shipments starting now,’” Trzuskowski said. “Then with social distancing, all of a sudden the wholesaler can’t be open to the public. It was a very quick stop to the industry.”Mellano said he also was hit hard by cancellations of events such as conferences, particularly in Las Vegas. Weddings were put off, along with their roses, said Eufloria’s Nelson.“Maybe they didn’t happen right now, but they’re going to happen, right?” he said. “We just don’t know what size they’re going to be when they do happen. Budgets are going to be different.”
The California Cut Flower Commission has told its members that floriculture is protected under the agricultural exemption to closure orders. But with the collapse of the distribution pipeline, the clarification amounts to a technicality. Los Angeles’ historic flower market, like others around the nation, is a ghost town. “We’ve got wholesale companies closing down and retail stores, which in some cases have business, are losing their normal lines of distribution,” CEO Pruitt said. “We’re in the process of trying to put that back together.”Pruitt said it’s hard to predict how many farms will fail and which ones will have enough funds left to reboot once demand increases. Growers could switch crops or hedge their bets, as some of the financially strapped greenhouse operations did by leasing space for cannabis cultivation when that crop was added to the California agricultural portfolio in 2016.Cut flowers are a $1.3-billion industry nationwide, though most of that revenue comes from the sale of imported flowers, predominantly from Colombia, according to the UC Davis Agricultural Issues Center. Domestic growers account for about 27% of national sales, down from 37% roughly a decade ago. California-grown flowers account for three-quarters of the national domestic sales, according to the UC Davis researchers.
Trade deals that favored Andean nations in South America as part of the war on drugs are largely responsible for the decline of California’s flower industry. While Colombia and Ecuador dominate the market for bouquet mainstays such as carnations, chrysanthemums, gerbera and roses, California growers shifted to species that can’t be grown in the cool upland valleys of the Andes.Longtime California growers switched to Continental’s specialty — the “supporting cast” of greenery in traditional bouquets including ferns, eucalyptus and Israeli ruscus, as well as Christmas trees and holly. That stock can be sustained through the shutdown. Eufloria’s roses, likewise, can survive. But they all have to be nourished, pruned and protected from weather and insects.“As long as we irrigate and we do pest control, they’re still in good shape for sales when this opens up,” Mellano said. “Probably 35% of our crop mix are annual crops, and those have to be picked when they’re ready, within days, or else they’re lost.”Among the victims are the ranunculus that carpet the Flower Fields near the San Diego Freeway in Carlsbad — a working farm that also is an important agritourism destination. It closed on March 17, two weeks into its season.
“We are absolutely dependent on the partnership between both tourists and cut flowers in order to make that work,” Mellano said of the Carlsbad farm. “And this year, all of our orders for the ranunculus got canceled by the supermarkets. And the tourism was shut down due to social distancing requirements.”Only a small portion of the fields will survive in hopes that social distancing rules will relax before summer. Then, people might again be able... Mar 19, 2020
AURORA OUTLIER: Southlands blooming among an industry of fading flowers - Sentinel Colorado
I think they are under attack by the internet,” he said. “There’s too many people shopping online and not supporting our brick and mortars.”
There are some similarities in strategy at the mostly open-air Southlands and Aurora’s indoor mall, the Town Center at Aurora, located near the Intersection of East Alameda Avenue and Interstate 225.
Both are regularly hosting events to keep folks coming into stores. Southlands created a popular “sensory-friendly Santa” event inDecember tailored for children and adults on the autism spectrum normally bugged by bright lights and too many kids. The mall also hosts holiday parades, which Hougen said he enjoys.
For its part, the Town Center is converting its old Sears space into an indoor sport emporium and separately hosting high school wrestling events that have been well-attended.
The sales tax revenue generated at these malls is crucial for the city, Hougen said.
In the Town Center, sales taxes businesses paid to the city of Aurora in 2018 passed a $5.8 million benchmark for the first time in 15 years, making the mall eligible for a significant tax rebate.
Southlands is regularly contributing more in sales tax revenue, reaching $11,420,746 in 2018 after a multi-year increase.
