Personally, this is my sixth Valentine’s Day in the flower world. It is amazing how these holidays actually mark time. This is where we get “war stories”, this is where we have epic saves or near misses, and this is where we just keep our head down and keep on keepin’ on until the dust settles.

 Here on the farm, one of my favorite parables usually told in the heat of battle is,
“You can learn a 100 different lessons during Valentine’s Day in the flower business, but you can only learn one lesson per year.”

Every year we come through Valentine’s Day wiser. This institutional and personal knowledge is learned and collected the old fashion way, EXPERIENCE!

Even before Lane DeVries took over the leadership of Sun Valley in 1992, we have been building a knowledge base that is literally unparalleled in the flower industry. The bandwidth of Sun Valley, from not only being a flower farm, but a logistics company, a bouquet house and a marketing firm, has given us the unique ability to understand a wide breath of the floral industry, and share that knowledge with our customers.
