You won’t see many hanging baskets in the whole of the downtown core, that were not put there by Florenco. They started at the Bentall Centre as an experiment, and have been refined over 25 years. Each spring, these jewels sway across the cityscape in sparkling colour.
There are 900 hanging baskets and counting, many belonging to the business improvement associations. They are made from 100% recycled materials every season; the same frames and chains are used and all moss contents are composted, so that there is zero waste. These baskets are a huge part of Florenco’s summer. What goes into them? Besides beautiful flowers, a lot of hard work..
All through summer, there are few days off for the staff. Watering takes two dedicated people, working a midnight shift from 9pm to 6am, sometimes in 30-degree heat. They cover 300 to 400 baskets per evening, so all the baskets are done over two nights. The rest of the crew pitches in for the remainder of the baskets, over the growing season. In all, the baskets are hung outside and meticulously maintained for five months, then removed. But the life-cycle of a Florenco hanging basket lasts even longer.
