Floral professionals: do you have an opinion about Millennials? Fairly or otherwise, many people have formed an image of our young friends born in the 80s and 90s, a stereotype that doesn’t always include the words “hard working” or “responsible.” This includes many of us in the floral business. If you are one of those people, looking out toward the horizon and questioning the future of Floriculture, fear not! FLORALIFE® brings good news!
Disbuds, Mums, Chrysanthemums… whatever you call them, these flowers hold a special place in the heart of the floral professionals everywhere. They are varied, colorful and long lasting, so they offer the design flexibility and vase life that keeps florists – and customers – happy. And they’re the topic of Floralife’s latest Care and Handling piece in the August edition of LivRio Magazine!
At Floralife, we like to describe our contribution to the global floriculture industry with the phrase “Follow the Flowers.” The path from the farm to the home is long and full of hazards for the delicate flower, and Floralife products attempt to address each of them. It’s a big job! How big? To appreciate the global scope of Following the Flowers, it helps to also “Follow the Income.”
Ranunculus – for a flower so pretty, its name certainly stumbles across the tongue, doesn’t it? Apparently, these affordable, long lasting blooms take their name from the Latin word for Little Frog, perhaps named for the many varieties that flourish near water. Ranunculus care and handling is the topic of the latest Floralife article in July’s LivRio Magazine!
Floralife has enjoyed an exciting, successful launch with Floralife Express No Stem Recut Technology. Of course, it helps that Express really works and it’s easy to use. But we have also had fun with the messaging, as we have reminded floral professionals that “Flowers Don’t Require Tough Labor,” or “You can Cut Time, not Flowers.” Now, it’s “Flowers are Foodies, Too!” …an idea that might help the floral retailer build customer loyalty.
