Leave it to Southern California’s floriculture industry to cultivate and support a trade publication that’s as engaging as it is timely and informative. But that’s precisely what Bloomin’ News is, and has been, for over 60 years. Published quarterly, Bloomin’ News regularly serves up its own down-to-earth take on industry news and topics to more than 5,000 growers, wholesalers, vendors, retail florists, designers, event and wedding planners. Amazingly, this popular publication covers local, regional and even global happenings, while also keeping the industry connected to its past, present and future.
Sisters Kit Wertz and Casey Schwartz started their floral company, Flower Duet, with influence from Casey’s work on cruise ships and their family’s life-long love of flowers. Floral Duet not only offers floral arrangements, but also offers classes to anyone who is interested – from brides to children.
Although the sisters have different design techniques (Kit prefers compact arrangements, while Casey likes to use more negative space), they work together in harmony to meet the needs of all of their clients. Read about Kit and Casey in the January and February edition of Bloomin’ News, now available online and at The Original Los Angeles Flower Market!
