#130: Local Color Flowers – A Design Studio’s Year Month-by-Month with Ellen Frost

by | Apr 30, 2022

My fascination with Ellen Frost’s local flower sourcing design studio model, Local Color Flowers, began years ago when we first met. Every flower farmer needs an Ellen on their customer list!

Local Color Flowers is located in Baltimore, Maryland. She buys all her flowers from growers within 100 miles of the shop, and she does it year-round. Let’s walk through a year, month-by-month of what is going on in Ellen’s studio plus what they are buying. Please see the PDF link below for the full outline.
