Tomorrow morning (Sunday), CBS Sunday Morning will air a segment about the flower business. I spent a couple of days recently with the crew filming in Santa Cruz and San Francisco. Check your local listings for the time – it varies around the country. I’ll probably miss it, as I’ll be getting on a plane to fly from Miami to Portland.
VALENTINE’S DAY: Roses
Those beautiful Valentine roses may look as romantic and
sentimental as an old-fashioned garden. But today, the cut flower
industry bears no resemblance whatsoever to that garden you may
remember. It’s a huge, high-tech, outsourced global industry. And as
correspondent Martha Teichner reports, it’s an industry where fragrance
has bred out of roses.
