There is so much to love about this tale of two flower shops in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. One caters to the area’s Hasidic Jewish population (factoid I learned: most Hasidic men buy flowers for their wife every Friday for the Sabbath. I think all men, regardless of religion should embrace this!) while the other caters to the neighborhood’s growing “hipster” population. What ties the two shops together? They’re both pushing the boundaries of what a bouquet “should” be. This is an idea the Garden embraces in many of our Floral Design classes, and I wish both shops many years of continued success! ~AR
