The Power of Flower Giving

Crouch Florist is taking a minute to remember those times when flowers really mattered. When you work in the floral industry, you work in an emotional business. You become involved in the lives of your customers in a meaningful way, helping them to honor and commemorate the most important events in their lives. Sometimes those occasions are small and personal to the people involved; sometimes they are big, and become memorable to everyone involved. Read More about The Power of Flower Giving »

Honoring Our Families Through Floral Traditions

As fall approaches, so does one of our country’s sweetest holidays- Grandparents Day. This special day, first observed in 1979, was created to bring children and their grandparents together in an effort to understand, honor and encourage one another. Not only will children develop a respect for their elders, but grandparents have the opportunity to indulge in the delights of youth once again. The floral artists at Crouch Florist recommend bringing a bouquet of grandmother’s favorite flowers when visiting for Grandparents Day… then asking her why they’re so special.

Being Bee Friendly

The bee population is on the decline and we need your help! Bees play a vital role in maintaining a balance in the eco-system. Not only do they provide nutrient-rich honey, with all of its medicinal and culinary value, but they also contribute in necessary ways to 90% of the world’s food population. If our bees continue to disappear, we will lose these benefits at a great cost to our own population. But you can reverse these effects by creating an outdoor space where bees can grow and thrive. Gardens that include bee-friendly flowers like lavender and sage, backyards that are pesticide-free, and porch flowers that provide shade and water to bees are some simple ways to encourage the work of bees. Crouch Florist encourages you to make small changes that will have a big impact. Read More about Being Bee Friendly »
