|In June of 2014 Behnke Nurseries decided to discontinue floral services. With most of the impulse, day-to-day floral needs of people being pretty well satisfied at their local grocery stores, that just leaves custom floral work, which is a difficult market in which to be successful. |
Behnkes has been very lucky over the last twenty or so years to have our floral manager, Evelyn, to run our shop. She is one of the top floral designers/store managers in the country. Logistically, for her, and for us, it doesn't make sense for us to move it to Beltsville. We can't imagine running it without her, so we are not going to re-open a florist shop at Beltsville.
