Are holidays still relevant to the retail florist industry?
Written by Amanda Ryder
With Easter now behind you and Administrative Professionals Week just around the corner, we thought now would be a good time to talk about floral holidays.

Reality or just really good TV?
Written by Patricia Owczarek

"Does anyone else feel that the new HGTV show "Petal Pushers" is an unrealistic depiction of what a retail establishment in our industry is? It makes me want to jump off a bridge. But I can't stop watching it either!"

Have your say by commenting on our blog.

How do you deal with online brides?
