On this Valentine’s Day, millions of people will receive flowers from their sweetheart. It’s a traditional way to show your love on this holiday, and WCCO wanted in on the love fest.
For Valentine’s Day, many people say “I love you” by sending out flowers and Feb. 12 is the usually the busiest day of the year for many flower shops. Thirty designers at Bachman’s in south Minneapolis will create more than 8,000 arrangements for the holiday. Many are made with a specific person in mind.
Hobbies usually fill our time between work hours. But what if a hobby turns into a job? Jen Scheffler had it happen.
I visited Bachman’s farmhouse on Tuesday to learn about the Poinsettia, the most popular holiday plant in North America.

A new trend in gardening is generating a buzz. More growers and gardeners are moving away from chemicals and insecticides that are hurting or killing bees.
Spring is one of the few times many of us look forward to chores. From sweeping off the porch to hosing down the deck to cleaning up the dog mess from the entire winter, it’s a rite of passage after a long Minnesota winter.
Everybody loves flowers! And good grief do we love them after THIS winter. This week, the Macy’s Flower Show opened up on the 8th floor of the downtown Minneapolis store and that inspired Dara to come up with her Top 5 Lunch Dates to Look at Flowers!
It’s safe to say that this year – more than ever – Minnesotans need a taste of spring. And while we’ll have to wait a few more weeks before the weather matches the changing season, winter weary residents will soon have a place to escape.
Figures show as many as 95 million flowers are delivered on Valentine’s Day. But for many people, they don’t last too long in the vase. WCCO’s Aristea Brady thought it would only be timely to ask experts a question many of you probably thought about today: How do I make my roses last?
Some of you have already gotten rid of your Christmas trees, and some of you are probably putting it off. Sure, you can leave yours by the curb for pickup. But we found out there’s a way you can make good use of that tree for the next four months or so.

Summer is officially over, but there’s still a few lawn chores you need to do because the secret to a beautiful lawn in the spring starts now. Susie Bachman said fall is a wonderful time to pay attention to your lawn, and it’s also crucial if you want your grass to look good when the snow melts in the spring.
If you’ve not got your fall plants in already, Saturday is the perfect day to do it. Susie Bachman demonstrates how to create fall planters that will accent your property quite well. Each Planter needs a drainage hole, and feel free to use a length piece of grass as a statement piece of the planter.
